Fig Prosciutto Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella and Balsamic GlazeAutumn officially starts in three days. Although the weather outside doesn’t quite agree with the calendar, I’m ready. It may be too early, but I’ve already started listening to Christmas music. (I know. I know, it’s only September. But hey, I’m excited.)

Don’t judge me. I’m actually listening to Kelly Clarkson’s Wrapped in Red album as I type this post. I’ve been in desperate need of a music break. For the past few weeks, Alex and I have been listening to nothing but sappy love songs as we search for our first dance song. We have a few contenders, but still lacking a winner.

Wedding planning is stressing me out. Even though we have 90% of the work done, I can’t help but think about alternative plans in case something were to fall through. Guh, I don’t even want to think about the seating chart. During nights when Alex and I have had enough, it’s time to make pizza.

Pizza (and a bottle of wine). Did you know that’s usually the solution to all of life’s challenges? 90% of the time, it works for me! :)

Fig Prosciutto Pizza

The start of autumn marks the end of fig season. I’m saying goodbye to this delicious, glorious fruit with this fig prosciutto pizza.

Figs are delectable in any application. Be it raw, jammed, or dried, figs are super tasty. They’re especially great when roasted.

This pizza brings out the sweetness of the figs. Paired with the creamy, silky mozzarella and salty prosciutto, this one is destined to become a favorite!

I’m pretending it is Fall…but it is still almost 100 degrees here!
Yikes!
This pizza looks incredible I have some figs and now I know just what to do with them!

I love figs, prosciutto and balsamic together – what a brilliant idea to combine them on a pizza! Good luck finding your perfect song! :)

Like you, I’m so ready for the fall and winter, though I haven’t busted out the Christmas music just yet. And this fig pizza? What a brilliant way to say goodbye to the summer. Now to get my hands on some figs…

I hope y’all are able to find a good first dance song and that the wedding stress calms. I remember that… and like y’all, we had a really tough time choosing our first dance. We ended up with “Heavenly Day” by Patty Griffin. It’s not a song either of us listened to a ton before, but every time I hear it now, it makes me smile. I hope you can find something equally fitting! <3

Wedding planning can definitely be challenging, but all worth it in the end! This pizza sounds like the perfect balance of sweet and salty.
