Caramelized shallots
2 tablespoons butter
5 shallots (about ½ pound), peeled and sliced thin
1 tablespoon molasses
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
salt and black pepper; to taste
prepared dough for 2 small (8 or 9 inch) pizzas*
8 ounces fresh California Mission figs, sliced ¼ inch thick
8 ounces fresh California Calimyrna figs, sliced ¼ inch thick
olive oil; as needed
salt and fresh ground black pepper; to taste
1 cup Caramelized shallots (Recipe above)
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
10 slices prosciutto
sprigs of arugula; for garnish

Caramelized Shallots
Heat butter in large saucepan and cook shallots until caramelized. Stir in molasses and vinegar; season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue to cook and stir until all liquid has been absorbed. Set aside to cool.

Preheat pizza stone or heavy baking pan in 500°F oven for 30 minutes or more. Meanwhile, spread figs on sheet pan or tray; drizzle with olive oil and honey, then season with salt and black pepper. Set aside.

Then, on 12x12 inch piece of parchment paper with lightly floured rolling pin, roll pizza dough to about ¼ inch thick. Brush generously with olive oil and spread Caramelized Shallots over all. Arrange sliced figs about ½ inch apart on top of shallots and season lightly with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle goat cheese evenly over all. Transfer pizza to preheated stone and bake, 10-15 minutes at 500°F or until cheese and edge of crust are lightly browned. Remove from oven and transfer to cutting board; let stand and cool slightly. Then, cut into wedges, and garnish with sliced prosciutto, parmesan and arugula.
