How to Make It

  1. Place a pizza stone in oven; preheat to 500°. Let pizza dough stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Combine ricotta cheese, sour cream, half-and-half, 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in a bowl. Flour a sheet of parchment paper. Working on parchment, stretch dough into an 11-inch circle. Brush with olive oil. Spread ricotta mixture over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with figs, onion, and ham. Slide onto a pizza peel, then onto pizza stone in oven. Bake 12 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves, 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
