  1. Pour the water into a large bowl, and sprinkle yeast over the top. Let stand for a few minutes to dissolve. Mix in the oil, salt, and flour to make a dough. When the dough is too stiff to stir, turn out onto a floured surface, and knead for about 5 minutes. Place into an oiled bowl, and cover with a clean towel. Set aside to rise for about 45 minutes.
  2. Place the figs into a small bowl, and pour boiling water over them. Let stand for about 10 minutes, then drain and chop. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions; cook and stir until they are wilted and soft. Reduce heat to low, and season with salt. Continue to cook and stir until the onions are a dark brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the thyme, fennel seed and figs, and remove from the heat.
  4. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). Punch down the pizza dough, and stretch into a circle about 1/4 inch thick. Place on a lightly greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Brush the surface lightly with remaining olive oil. Spread the onion and fig mixture over the crust. It will be sparse, but there is plenty of flavor. Dot with pieces of goat cheese.
  5. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the crust has turned golden brown at the edges.

I didn't care for the re-hydrated figs.

Very tastey. I'd recommend blending the oil olive into the goat cheese, and then spreading it on the crust. Then press the onions, seeds, and thinly sliced figs into the cheese before you bake...

Used a ready-made pizza crust and fresh figs instead of dried. Outstanding recipe! I did reduce the fennel a tad because I don't care for it that much. Went great with a bottle of cab.

I loved this recipe! I made it on sliced baguettes instead of pizza crust and it was a huge success. Everyone at my party loved them and they were gone in an instant!

I love goat cheese stuffed figs so I love the idea of the pizza. Changes I made: fresh, sliced figs, 1 thinly sliced shallot, and a ready made Naan crust, topped with fresh parsley. I did not ca...

This makes a regular appearance anywhere I go. I simplify it by using store-bought dough. I mix some of the cheese with a little fig (or sometimes rasp/cranberry)preserves to moisten it a bit ...

Turned out great. I added a little drizzle of acacia honey and fresh ground pepper, and used frozen quartered figs instead of dried. It impressed a bunch of my French friends-- irrefutable proof...

Always looking for untraditional pizza recipes. Love goat cheese and figs. Used fresh figs which were excellent. Don't skimp on the onion or dried spices.

We've eaten this time and time again. My kids love it and so did my neighbors when I served it as an appetizer at a neighborhood party. I dried and froze fresh figs. They worked perfectly well o...
