Valley Fig Growers Mediterranean Fig & Feta Pizza


Valley Fig Growers Mediterranean Fig & Feta Pizza
The convenience of using refrigerated pizza dough—along with a variety of fresh veggies, two kinds of cheese, lots of herbs, and high-fiber, dark purple California Mission Figs from Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice and Sun-Maid—makes this vegetarian pizza a real crowd pleaser. It’s a healthy nod to the new year and a great meal to get the family cooking together—slicing, chopping, grating, sizzling, and sprinkling to tasty perfection.
