Bacon and Fig Flatbread

We stumbled upon some figs in our local grocery store’s produce section, and we made the impulsive decision to buy a basket of them. Immediately upon putting these little fruits in our basket, we began to ponder how we wanted to use them, and we settled upon a salty/sweet combo. Having not had bacon in a while, we figured that’d be a great salty component…and with bacon and fig elevated as our main ingredients, our sights quickly became set on a flatbread!

Building out the rest of the ingredients, we selected goat cheese for its creamy earthiness and then added some wilted arugula and red onion for a hint of sweet spice before topping everything with a white balsamic glaze. Lastly, we made a Crispy Thin Pizza Crust to ensure our flatbread would be extra flat. The end result was culinary joy and happy eaters in our house!

Time: 30 Minutes (plus dough making time)



  • Place your pizza stone in your oven, and preheat to 415 degrees F.
  • Slice your bacon into cross-sectional strips, and cook in a small frying pan until your bacon is crispy.
  • While your bacon cooks, slice your figs and onions.
  • When your bacon is done, transfer it into a bowl, and then use your bacon grease in the pan to wilt your arugula. Then, remove your arugula from the pan, and set it aside too.
  • Place some parchment paper on your counter, and plop your dough on top. Then, use a rolling pin to flatten it out and roll it to the size and dough thickness you like.
  • Arrange your arugula and onions atop your dough. Then, add on your figs and bacon before topping with your goat cheese and white balsamic drizzle.
  • Pull your pizza stone from the oven, and transfer your flatbread (parchment paper and all) onto your pizza stone.
  • Stash everything in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and slice.
  • Plate, devour, and enjoy!
