Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Shredded Jarlsberg cheese
  • 1 Pound pizza dough
  • 12 Ounces crushed tomatoes
  • olive oil spray, to taste
  • 2 fresh figs, diced
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • basil to taste

Directions

Before you light the grill, spray olive oil over grill, being sure to cover well. Once grill is hot, gently lay the dough, stretched out already, on the grill. Cook for 3 minutes or until crust starts to brown slightly, then flip. In a separate bowl, mix crushed tomatoes, adding in salt, pepper and fresh basil to taste. Lay tomato mixture and Jarlsberg cheese on top of crust, and scatter some fresh, sliced figs. Cover for 4-5 minutes, until cheese is melted.

 

Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
