Pear and Arugula Flatbread Pizza


      It is my mission to bring you awesome quick meals. I lay awake at night trying to
    be creative and write recipes. Sometimes I wake up out of a deep sleep and start
    writing my thoughts on a certain recipe. I actually don't even leave the house without
    a pen and a little notebook...I find inspiration all around me. This recipe came to me
    when I saw a jar of Fig Butter just hanging around. Holy Yumminess!!!!!

                                                        Pear and Arugula Flatbread Pizza

      2 flatbreads
      red onion, a few slices
      1 pear
      a handful of arugula
      1/4 cup mozzarella, shredded
      goat cheese
      olive oil
      fig butter

       Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush Flatbread with olive oil and than put on some of
       the fig jam. Sprinkle on the mozzarella and top with arugula. Add the sliced pear -
       onion and goat cheese. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
       "Note" this would be a great appetizer at a holiday party...cut into wedges and served
        with some chilled wine wine or spritzer.
