10 oz Dried Figs

2 Onions 

2 cloves of Garlic 


2 tbsp Butter

  1. Chop the onions into large slices and mince the garlic 
  2. In a cast iron pan, add 2 -3 tbsp of olive oil and add the onions, garlic, 2 tbsp of butter and pinch of salt
  3. Turn the heat on medium-low heat and put a lid on it to caramelize the onions
  4. Remove the stems for the figs and cut them in halves or thirds
  5. In a small saucepan, add the figs, pinch of salt and ⅓ – ½ cup of port wine
  6. Cover the saucepan, cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes
    (bring to a light boil)
  7. Check on your cast iron pan, keep stirring until onions are caramelized
  8. Check on saucepan, stir figs well then cover top and turn off the burner 
    (let sit for 25 minutes)

    (do not dump liquid into pan)

    (this is your pizza sauce!)
  12. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake your cast iron pan for 10 minutes
  13. Add 3 tbsp olive oil to the bottom of the pan and spread the olive oil around the pan with the dough 
    (pizza dough should be room temp)
  14. The dough should be the same thickness around entire pan bottom 
    (flip dough to get olive oil on both sides)
  15. ‘Dimple’ the dough with your fingers so it stays in the shape of the pan and doesn’t shrink and adds flavor
  16. Lightly salt and pepper the dough then add the fig and onion mixture
  17. Spread the mixture across the top of the dough and lightly press down in center
  18. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees
