Fig, Burrata, and Arugula Pizza

Pizza making is probably one of my most favorite meals to make. I have made my own dough before, but on this particular Tuesday evening I used Whole foods fresh made dough. Thankfully there is one by my work and they always have dough balls for sale when I want to make pizza last minute.

Pizza Dough
Figs (2 Cups)
1 Red Onion
Burrata cheese
Salt & Pepper
Nona's balsamic reduction 
Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 500 degrees (or as hot as you can get your oven) with your pizza stone in the oven. Two things you need for pizza like how I enjoy it is a great stone (mine is square and large from Sur La Table) and a big pizza paddle... I divide one pizza dough into two parts so one dough ball makes two pizzas. Roll the dough really, really thin. Sauté onion with olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper.
I put fine cornmeal on a large pizza paddle and place my rolled out dough on that. Don't worry about it being perfectly round. drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Top with figs and sautéed onion mixture. Bake for 10-15 minutes until cooked and crispy on the outside. You should see a beautifully browned crust.
In the meantime toss arugula with a very light amount of olive oil and lemon, just to gently dress it and salt and pepper. Take the pizza out, break up the creamy Burrata cheese and spread it in clumps all over the pizza. If you want you can put it back in the oven for 30 seconds or just let the Burrata melt on its own, depending on how warm you want the cheese. Top with the arugula and a drizzle of Nona's balsamic reduction and enjoy! 
Don't forget the glass of wine... Cheers!
