"From a recipe exchange, inspired by an amazing restaurant in the Bay. The original calls for sausage but I actually think the flavors are even more amazing without."

"I am in heaven!!! I did not do this vegetarian.....I used the hot italian sausage. I agree with FLKeysJen.....the arugula tended to burn during baking.....think I'd add it midway through baking. Love the bite from the arugula and blue cheese, the heat from the hot italian sausage and the sweet from the figs. This was amazing, and I highly recommend it. Thanks for sharing! Made for Best of 2013 Tag game. Fabulous!!"
"Incredible vegetarian pizza! (I would love to try it with the sausage though!) It calls for a lot of fig for one pizza, can use a bit less. Also next time I'll try tossing the greens with rosemary olive oil and black pepper, and sprinkle over the pizza at the very end, instead of baking them."
"DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!! The flavors are very strong and they compete with each other to the point that I couldn't really taste the figs, but we used fresh figs, so that may have made a difference. Either way, it didn't really matter because this was so tasty. We also used 2 links of Italian sausage and fresh radicchio from the garden. Thanks so much for posting it!"
"Mmmm, another great recipe! I did end up using the Italian sausage, and am glad I did. The different flavors of sausage, blue cheese, figs, and arugula taste incredible together. I will be making this again and again- thanks for sharing."
"I have been wanting to try this ever since I saw it in the best of game, and was glad I found fresh figs frozen to make it with - though I think fresh raw figs would have been even better. I followed that tip from another reviewer, along with others. We put the arugula on at the end raw, along with basil (instead of rosemary), skipped the mozzarella cheese and topped it with oven-crisped prosciutto. All these flavors work really well together and make for a great pizza."
"Great flavor combination! I made the pizza with hot sausage, and took Breezermom's advice and added the arugula the last few minutes of baking. Tagged for Best of 2013 on 02/10, due 02/24/14."
"This was wonderful pizza full of interesting flavors! I prepared my pizza dough using this recipe: #330617. I bought fresh mozzarella balls and used 1/2 cup of Rogue Creamery's 'Smoky Bleu' cheese made here in Oregon. We opted for arugula-also fresh and local. Used only six figs (unsulphered ones, too.) Fresh rosemary from the garden, fresh garlic from our CSA box and the sausage was omitted although we're thinking next time of adding a little bit of pancetta. Reveiwed for Veg Tag/July. Thank you!"
