Fig Prosciutto & Hawaiian BBQ Pizza

Let’s have a pizza party and talk about life, okay? Sometimes all you need is a cozy movie sesh with your bestest friends and a big ol slice of pizza. (or 2) Ain’t nothing wrong with that!  My favorite meal to make when friends come over is pizza and salad. SO EASY and SO FUN. I love to have a million different toppings all chopped up and laid out so everyone can put on their favorites, and then have their own individual pizzas topped to perfection. Have some friends over, make some pizzas, grab a bottle of wine (maybe..) and host a girls night in!

Sweet and salty, man. The mac to the cheese, the peanut butter to the jam, and the key to my heart, always. Sweet fig and balsamic reduction with salty prosciutto. PERFECTION. Sweet bbq sauce and pineapple with savory chicken and red onion. WINNER. These are my absolute favorite combinations and why choose one when you can do both? I mean look at that, does it get any better?

As most of you know, gluten free pizza crust (and I mean goooood pizza crust) can be extremely hard to find. I’ve had my fair share of crust that tastes like cardboard, trust me. For this recipe, I tested out the Simple Mills Pizza Crust Mix and what I tasted was absolute perfection! It’s magically doughy, slightly crunch on the outside, and is the closest thing to real glutenous pizza that I’ve had in 8 years. Bonus points for being paleo friendly! It’s on the pricey side, but the ingredients are so minimal and clean, it’s a treat you can feel good about putting into your body.
