Fig Flatbread

This flatbread pizza has been a go-to weeknight dinner recipe for years. Quick, easy, and super delicious - this flatbread from Southern Living hits all the right spots. Sweet figs, tangy goat cheese, and caramelized red onions that can only be described as umami, and all the ingredients can be found at our markets! If you are looking to save some extra time, skip the pizza dough and opt for lavash or naan - perfect for personal pizzas!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 14 ounces store-bought fresh pizza dough
  • 6 figs, thinly sliced crosswise, divided
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup loosely packed arugula


Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium. Add red onion and 1/4 teaspoon each of the kosher salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender, 2 minutes.

Roll pizza dough into a 1/4-inch-thick, 17- x 11-inch rectangle. Place on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Top evenly with cooked onions, one-third of the fig slices, and cheese. Bake until crust is lightly browned and done, 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Top flatbread with remaining figs, arugula, and balsamic reduction.
