Fig & Manchego Wood-Fired Pizza

It’s that day again Pizza Friday and here is another great recipe this time from And if you are looking to buy a pizza oven but short on cash no worries. Worldmarket happens to sell the greatest little pizza oven! I originally bought one because I loved the design thinking maybe I would just have it in the backyard more as décor? Turns out it’s actually is a great for it’s size to cook pizza, bread, rolls, etc. Grab one while they are available and start trying out all these great pizza recipes and some of your own:


1 Pastorelli Ultra Thin & Crispy Pizza Crust

2 Tbsp. Mackays Fig Preserves

1 oz. Talatta Anchovy Fillets (optional, but encouraged)

1 oz. Manchego cheese

1/2 cup arugula

1 drizzle Iliada Kalamata olive oil

1 squeeze fresh lemon juice


1. Preheat Terracotta Pizza Oven by lighting a fire in the center using paper, a bundle of dry kindling and two to three pieces of dry hardwood. Allow fire to burn for 30 minutes, until glowing embers remain.

2. Spread fig preserves evenly over pizza crust. Top with anchovy fillets and Manchego cheese.

3. Using a Wood Pizza Paddle, put the pizza in the oven. Use the paddle to rotate the pizza every minute or so, if desired. Pull pizza out after 3 to 5 minutes, or when cheese is bubbling and crust is golden brown.

4. Build with arugula and drizzle with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Enjoy!
