A tapenade is a condiment from the Provence region of France typically made with olives, capers, and other seasonings. Ours contains figs, which gives it its thick consistency. It can be made several days in advance and refrigerated. On the day of the party, assemble the pizzas up to an hour in advance, cover, and leave at room temperature until ready to bake.
