Fig, Arugula, Prosciutto Pizza

IMG_1004

Here is my all time favorite pizza! I prefer to eat lactose free so this pizza has no cheese, but I recommend goat cheese or ricotta for this recipe.

Prepare store bought pizza dough mix as per the instructions.  I like to add salt, pepper, olive oil and rosemary to the crust prior to baking.

Once the crust has baked off and cooled slightly, spread the fig butter and top with arugula and prosciutto.
