Recipe from Holly Clegg, author of Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets To Sizzle At Any Age.


  • 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1 (12-ounce) thin pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 4 ounces figs, sliced in thirds
  • 2 ounces prosciutto, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, optional


  • In small nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil and sauté onion, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes until the onions start to turn golden. Add sugar and continue cooking until they are a caramel color. Set aside to cool.
  • Preheat oven 450°F. On pizza crust, spread remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and cover with orange marmalade. Arrange cooled onions, figs, prosciutto, goat cheese and mozzarella on crust.
  • Sprinkle with rosemary, if desired. Bake 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is crisp.
