Another pizza from our pizza making evening in Sweden and another hit all around. The combination of sweet and salty and creamy always works and this pizza with (mother’s homegrown!) figs, prosciutto and blue cheese was no exception!
I realise blue cheese is sometimes an acquired taste, BUT don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. I used cambozola here which is rather mild, and only a little of it as I didn’t want it to overpower the sweet and juicy figs – merely complement them!
Pizza bianco with prosciutto, figs and Cambozola, makes 1 pizza
1/4 pizza dough
flour for rolling
2-3 tbsp creme fraiche
1/4 buffalo mozzarella, torn into smaller pieces
100 ml grated Präst cheese (mature cheddar works too)
3 slices prosciutto, torn into a few smaller pieces
2-3 figs, sliced lenghtways
40 g Cambozola, broken into smaller pieces
sea salt and black pepper
Roll out the dough with the help of a rolling pin on a floured surface. Place the rolled out pizza base on a parchment paper covered baking tray. Spread out the creme fraiche on the pizza base. Divide the mozzarella and the grated Präst cheese. Add the ham and figs and distribute the Cambozola. Season. Bake in a 220C (200C fan) oven for 8-10 minutes, until the base is crisp, the cheese has melted and the whole thing is golden brown. Remove from oven and cut into slices.
