Another hit from Monica’s “Modern Spice” cookbook. I made a half recipe and then made a regular pizza with the rest of the dough.
One 12-inch pre-packaged pizza crust or dough (I used Trader Joe’s dough)
1 cup store-bought paneer, crumbled (use a cheese grater)
1 cup ricotta cheese
8-10 very ripe figs, trimmed and thinly sliced
Table salt to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
8-10 basil leaves
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Spray the crust with a mist of oil.
In a bowl combine the paneer and ricotta and mix well.
Spread the cheese mixture evenly over the crust.
Top with the figs, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake according to the directions given with the crust, usually about 10-12 minutes. The cheese will brown a little but it is NOT a melting cheese so don’t expect it to bubble.
Serve topped with fresh basil leaves.
