This pizza is sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy all at the same time. In other words, it’s just about the perfect pizza. Made with crème fraîche instead of a tomato base it’s different in just the right way.
Start with a homemade dough. I used Wolfgang Puck’s famous honey crust he uses at Spago. You’ll find the full recipe here.
Next, get your crème fraîche. It’s super easy to make and only has two ingredients, cream and buttermilk. You’ll find the recipe for making homemade creme fraiche here.
Arrange fresh sliced figs, sage and prosciutto ham over the crème fraîche base and sprinkle with a little parmesan cheese. Add a layer of caramelized onions if you like. I love the combination of sweet onion with salty ham.
