Fig pizza

Took a test today, so naturally I am de-stressing with yummy food. Tonight's dinner: naan pizza with figs, caramelized onions, and gruyère cheese. This was modeled after a pizza that I have had in the past at an amazing tea-house here in Boulder. 

These are the ingredients I used, plus butter and brown sugar to caramelize the onions.

Started with caramelizing the onions (warm lots of butter in a pan, add finely chopped onions and much brown sugar, cook until caramelized), which made the kitchen smell AMAZING!

Toasted the naan a bit. 

Melted the gruyère cheese in a small saucepan with the addition of a little milk.

Added the onions, sliced figs (dried figlets actually), gruyère cheese sauce and extra sliced gruyère. 

Baked the pizzas in the oven for 6-7 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit to melt the cheese and heat all of the ingredients (nothing actually has to cook though, just warm up).

In the future I don't think I would caramelize the onions, probably just brown them instead. The figs are already sweet enough and the caramelizing process made the onions almost too sticky to eat. Other than that, delish!
