I met with a friend recently, who told me about a pizza she had tried in Canada, with figs, proscuitto and blue cheese. I came across this recipe, bought the ingredients, and was excited to make it for my husband. We were trying to decide whether to go out for dinner or stay in one night, but once I mentioned this delicious dish, he chose date night at home.
