I feel like as soon as I hear figs are available in the market, I am always clamoring to get them. They are such a special little treat.

While I love figs in sweet dishes, like in my morning yogurt bowls- my favorite way to eat figs is pairing them with a savory, salty component.

Enter the Fig French Bread Pizza. A sweet/tangy/savory/salty treat of a pizza, that, prep to finish, is on the table in less than 30 minutes. I see myself wining and dining myself in the yard with these until the last fig of the season is found. They’re that delicious, and that easy.
