Fig and Caramelized Onion Pizza (GF)


Summer nights always leave me a bit at a loss for dinner ideas. The main reason for this has a lot to do with my oven. It’s ancient; it’s always hot (even when turned off). This in combination with the summer heat make it hard to find the motivation to cook for dinner. But this fig and caramelized pizza is a keeper, because it only goes into the oven for about 7 minutes. 7 minutes of torture none the less but it’s all a compromise.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pre-made GF pizza crust
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Figs
  • 1 onion, slivered
  • 4 TBSP butter
  • 2 oz. of goat cheese
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Salt and pepper

To make:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 (skip this step if your oven is anything like mine)
  2. Coat the pizza crust in olive oil.
  3. Add the slivered onions and butter to a sauté pan. Cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, until onions are caramelized. Once nearly caramelized add in the garlic, salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme to cook.
  4. Slice the figs into thin slices.
  5. Add the caramelized onion mixture to the top of the pizza crust.
  6. Slice the goat cheese and add on top of caramelized onions.
  7. Place directly on the oven rack. Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Once done, add the figs to the top. Enjoy!

Coffee Kit

There is NOTHING better than making a perfect cup of coffee at home. That’s why I’ve curated my coffee kit over the past 2 years. Investing a lot of time in gathering some of the best coffee making products, I’ve definitely mastered this art of coffee making at home. Harry and I are crazy about coffee and it’s the one thing we will never quit.

However, the one thing I would like to add to this in the future is a burr coffee grinder. We really just don’t have room for one right now. For now we just grind our beans when we buy them at the store or cafe.

Bonavita 1.0L Gooseneck Electric Kettle – This is a staple for pour over. But with its quick boil time and simplicity, it’s very multipurpose.

Bonavita Programmable Glass Carafe Coffee Brewer with Warming Plate – 8 Cup – This is one of the greatest automatic coffee makers out there. Especially with the glass carafe; the coffee is never bitter. The taste of the coffee that this makes is a lot like a pour over but much smoother and balanced. 10/10 would recommend.

The Basic. Coffee Pour Over Stand – It’s just so cool. The glass, again, creates a coffee that’s never bitter. Quick and easy to use, especially with the Bonavita kettle.

French Press – Oh so classic. I had these growing up and I’ll probably use one for the rest of my life. A very bold and creamy coffee, simply the best.

Pantone Percolator – For a good espresso at home, get a percolator. Cost effective and easy to use. Great for making lattes and other coffee drinks.

HAY Clip Clip – I just love this so much. I got it in Oslo at the HAY store but you can get it at other retailers in the US. It has a clip on the reverse that serves as a clip for your bag of coffee, genius.

So, how do you like to make your coffee?

Note: I didn’t picture our handheld milk frother but I do love using it. It was a bit of an after thought because I use it mostly in fall/winter for making lattes at home. But this is the one we have.
