Fig & Manchego Wood-Fired Pizza Recipe
We're fired up for pizza! Rich Manchego cheese is a savory counterpoint for the sweetness of the fig preserves; arugula delivers a peppery pop.

Total Time: 35 min.
1 Pastorelli Ultra Thin & Crispy Pizza Crust
2 Tbsp. Mackays Fig Preserves
1 oz. Talatta Anchovy Fillets (optional, but encouraged)
1 oz. Manchego cheese
1/2 cup arugula
1 drizzle Iliada Kalamata olive oil
1 squeeze fresh lemon juice
1. Preheat Terracotta Pizza Oven by lighting a fire in the center using paper, a bundle of dry kindling and two to three pieces of dry hardwood. Allow fire to burn for 30 minutes, until glowing embers remain.
2. Spread fig preserves evenly over pizza crust. Top with anchovy fillets and Manchego cheese.
3. Using a Wood Pizza Paddle, put the pizza in the oven. Use the paddle to rotate the pizza every minute or so, if desired. Pull pizza out after 3 to 5 minutes, or when cheese is bubbling and crust is golden brown.
4. Build with arugula and drizzle with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Enjoy!
