Fig, Pancetta, and Gorgonzola Pizza

Fig, Pancetta, and Gorgonzola Pizza

This recipe offers a taste of what it would be like to have a professional wardrobe stylist on staff to dress your Almond Flour Naked Crust. After all, who hasn’t used a birthday wish on that fantasy? Look at this carefully assembled ensemble of sweet (fig), salty (pancetta), and savory (gorgonzola and fontina) flavors. It’s sure to delight any table it sets its crispy crust on. And it works with whatever you are or aren’t wearing. That’s the beauty of pizza. It doesn’t care about our clothes. It’s pizza!
