I’ve got two people in my life with access to fig trees, which means I’m in fig heaven.  I’ve been inundating my Instagram stories with photos of figs and fig pizza in the past week or two, so much so that people may think I’m a bit obsessed.

I’m here to tell you that I’m very, very obsessed. 🙂

Figs

Aren’t they gorgeous?

Every year I get copious amounts of figs and if you’re familiar with them, you know they get overly ripe very fast.  That means I’ve been making my Small-Batch Fig Honey Jam a lot lately, as well as this Grilled Fig, Bacon, and Arugula Flatbread Pizza.

The pizza takes all of 5-10 minutes of prep.  Grab your whole grain naan and top with cheese, red onion, cooked, crumbled bacon, and sliced fig.  Pop on the grill for 3-4 minutes tops, and it’s done!

The fun part comes when it’s off the grill.  Give it a nice drizzle of balsamic glaze and top with fresh arugula.

The arugula wilts down, so don’t be afraid to be generous with it.

The combination of the red onion, smoky bacon, sweet figs and glaze with the peppery arugula is just incredible.

And let’s not forget the gooey mozzarella!

This Grilled Fig, Bacon, and Arugula Flatbread Pizza is the perfect easy meal or appetizer for your summer nights.  Grab some figs while you can because they’re not around long enough!
