This whole wheat fig and goat cheese pizza is perfect to add to your recipe box of healthy dinner ideas! Thanks to Fleischmann’s Yeast for sponsoring this post and encouraging me to create a healthy and gourmet pizza.
One of my goals as part of the 60-day BMS challenge I started at the end of the year is to only eat whole wheat products. And on my list of okay whole wheat products is whole wheat pizza dough! It’s a good thing because I’m pretty sure my family and I weren’t going to make it two full months without a little pizza.
I know when you normally think of pizza, you probably think of something like this pepperoni and cheese pizza loaf or maybe even something with a few more toppings like my family’s favorite pizza recipe. But one of the reasons I love pizza most is because you really can top it with any of your favorite toppings, and it’s still delicious. This version is healthy, a little gourmet, and delicious! Here’s how you make it.
Step 1 – Make your dough. I used Fleischmann’s® Pizza Crust Yeast and this whole wheat pizza dough recipe to make my dough. I love how the yeast is made specifically for making pizza crust and works great! Once your dough is made, gather your other ingredients to make sure you have everything. You’ll need the pizza dough, fig jam or marmalade, goat cheese, and prosciutto.
Step 2 – Preheat your oven to 450 degrees then roll out your dough. I like to roll the dough directly onto the pizza stone just so I don’t have to deal with moving it from the counter to the stone later.
Step 3 – Spread the fig marmalade all over the pizza crust with the back of a spoon until you have a nice even layer on top of the dough.
Step 4 – Top with crumbled goat cheese. It’s easier to crumble if you leave it in the refrigerator until just before you are adding it to the pizza but if you didn’t, just use a spoon to help drop small pieces all over the pizza.
Step 5 – Top with strips of prosciutto until almost every bite has a piece.
Step 6 – Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the crust and prosciutto both seem browned. Every oven is a little different so once your timer hits 10 minutes, you’ll want to watch the pizza to make sure the prosciutto doesn’t burn. Take it out of the oven and serve nice and hot. And I’ll warn you, it likely won’t last long. The combination of the sweet fig, creamy goat cheese, and crispy prosciutto is seriously amazing. It’s also really good on a super thin crust if you would prefer to not use whole wheat dough. The whole wheat dough just makes it easier to think of as part of your healthy dinner ideas.
