Out-of-This-World Pizza with Goat Cheese and Fig Tapenade
8 servings (serving size: 2 pieces)
2/3 cup chopped dried figs (about 4 ounces)
3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons chopped pitted kalamata olives
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 whole-wheat English muffins, split
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled soft goat cheese
Thyme sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine figs and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently until liquid is absorbed. Place figs in a small bowl. Stir in olives, vinegar, oil, thyme, and pepper. Top each muffin half with 2 tablespoons cheese and 2 tablespoons fig mixture. Place muffin halves on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Cut each muffin half in half. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.
Amazing!! I would make this every day if I could. Scrumptious, easy, and healthy enough for the whole family. We used Wasa crackers (similar to Rykrisp). The toppings were perfect complements. You'll love it!!
Great recipe, I toasted the muffins a little bite before putting the topping on, I also used jarred fig preserves I added some balsamic, oil and thyme. I got rave reviews from my guests. Have made this several times.
