Monday Munchies: pizza with pizazz!!!

For thanksgiving this year I decided that turkey was not going to be on the menu, and that instead we were going to have pizza.... but with pizazz. Andy was game for it and we had some people from church over who liked the idea as they were having their big thanksgiving meal on Friday. Some weeks ago I had a fig, prosciutto, and goat cheese pizza at a restaurant and decided I was going to try making my own. I looked online to find a recipe that had all the ingredients that the one at the restaurant did...but couldn't find what I was looking for so I made it up:)
You'll need the following:
Pizza dough
Prosciutto about a 3rd of a pound
Dried figs sliced up-- about 5 figs
Lemon juice
Goat cheese

Roll out the dough, and preheat the oven to 450. Put the mozzarella and dried figs on the pizza and put in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the crust is done. While the pizza is cooking tear the prosciutto up into smaller pieces and take about 2 handfuls of arugula and toss it Ina some lemon juice and about a 1/2 teaspoon of thyme. When the pizza is cooked, take out and put the prosciutto on top and then the arugula. After the meat and arugula have been added, crumble some goat cheese on top. Let cool and you have a great pizza!

The other pizza we tried was mother copy from a restaurant, but not the same one! This one was a spicy chicken Thai pizza. You'll need the following:
Pizza dough
Peanut sauce-- bought from the grocery store
Cooked chicken-- canned or rotisserie
Shredded carrot--1 big one
Bean sprouts
Green onion

Roll out the dough thin and put the peanut sauce and the chicken on top. Cook few to ten minutes at 450 , or until the crust is cooked. Meanwhile chop up three stalks of green onions and toss with the carrots and sprouts. Add fresh cilantro as well. Once the pizza is done, top it with the sprout mixture and enjoy! The spice is in the peanut sauce.

It was fun making gourmet pizzas! Both were relatively easy and super tasty:) we'll be making them again for sure. Nathania also has a great salmon pizza we tried that she will add later!
Are there any fun pizzas you've tried lately?

Happy cooking!!!!
