Flatbreads are an easy dinner to pull together and, because you'll need to work quickly to top them (so the uncooked bottoms don't steam and soften), this meal comes together quickly. Balsamic onions and pungent fresh cheese cut the sweetness of the figs perfectly. Don't skimp on the fig jam, though—it really drives the fig flavor home.

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red onion (from 1 large [11-ounce] onion)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • ¼ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound fresh prepared pizza dough, at room temperature
  • All-purpose flour, for baking sheet
  • ¼ cup fig preserves
  • 1½ ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled (about 6 tablespoons)
  • 12 small fresh figs (10 ounces total), stemmed and halved lengthwise (about 2 cups)
  • 1½ cups packed baby arugula (1½ ounces)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (400°F to 450°F). Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-low. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp and browned in spots, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in vinegar, rosemary, pepper and salt; cook, stirring often, until liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Divide dough in half; shape each half into a ball. Roll each ball into a 12- x 6-inch oval. Transfer to an unrimmed baking sheet (or an inverted rimmed baking sheet) lightly dusted with flour.
  3. Slide dough ovals onto oiled grates; grill, uncovered, until lightly charred on bottoms, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip flatbreads, and return to baking sheet. Working quickly, spread top sides of flatbreads evenly with fig preserves. Top evenly with onion mixture, cheese, and fresh figs. Slide flatbreads onto grates; grill, covered, until cheese is softened and flatbreads are lightly charred on bottoms, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from grill; sprinkle evenly with arugula.
