      Other than fresh and frozen I don't have a favorite. I have smeared the insides of figs onto buttered English muffins and that was pretty darn delicious. I don't like my English muffins overly sweet so I don't typically put jam or marmalade on them but the figs work nicely.

        For pizza i highly recommend Figs with Prosciutto, goat cheese, and some nice balsamic or honey drizzled on top. Its like a Dessert pizza and so good!

          Thinking garlic would clash but artichoke hearts will do nicely

          Garlic oil is most important ingredient otherwise, along w pecorino & a parm/asiago shower. Chz mix blend is So important for depth

        That pic of the pizza looks so funny., kinda like it was done by the world's laziest sous chef.

        BUT - it's like figs instead of pineapple! And I do love pineapple on my pizza.

        -Sorry FIGSinGA but I'm gonna have to steal this idea.

        Great concept! My kind of cooking!

          Waited 2 yrs for this with my family last weekend. As jessup42 stated - with some twist - both had RdB, goat and mozzarella cheese, baby arugula, prosciutto, caramelized onion but one w tomato sauce and the other w fig jam spread. Oh yes, both drizzled w fig balsamic vinegar... family approved 🥰

            Looks scrumptious! What's fig balsamic vinegar? I mean, do you mix it yourself and let it marinate for months, or what?

          My wife made this years ago. Fig upside down cake. Figs used were Genoese Nero AF, I258, Barnisotte, & Preto.

            Thanks! I have a few more that haven’t been circulated.

          I like to cut them in half and add just a drop or two of balsamic vinegar from Modena (the thick, expensive good stuff). Pairs so well together.

            Long peppers (poblano?) out of the garden, stuffed with gorgonzola, little chunks of bacon, and chunks of fresh very ripe King figs, and warmed thoroughly n the oven!

                Fig pavlova cake is da bomb!
                I made a fig pizza in my woodfired oven that came out real good recently- capicola, figs and ricotta finished with a squirt of maple syrup.

                  Tried something new for lunch. Simple but great contrast in flavors and temperature.

                  Toasted provolone with tomato and fig applied after toasting.
