Chef Approved: Kristin’s Salted Fig Pizza


Working in this industry to get to meet so many wonderfully talented people, and I am so happy to have worked with Kristin Grilli on several events this week for Bertolli Olive Oil. I have olive oil on the brain, so be prepared for many recipes featuring Bertolli products! 🙂

Kristin has her own lifestyle blog Sugar Cookies and Lip Gloss which has great tips on food, fashion, health, and decor. She is based out of Houston and has great knowledge of the area as well! Her Salted Fig Pizza is such a beautifully simple recipe and has my mouth watering, I just had to share it!

Recipe can be found here


Salted Fig Pizza 


1 slice of naan bread

Fig spread (see recipe below to create homemade spread)


2 snack packs of BelGioioso Mozzarella snacking cheese


2 ½ handfuls of arugula



Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Spread the Fig Spread over the naan bread and sprinkle with a dash of salt

Artfully arrange slices of the mozzarella on top of the pizza

Place the pizza in the oven for about 7 to 10 minutes to melt the cheese and warm the naan bread

When ready, remove pizza from the oven and layer prosciutto on top of the cheese

Pile arugula on top and add shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano


There is no better combination than salty and sweet! I love this recipe and cannot wait to make it this week.


Make sure you check out Kristin’s blog Sugar Cookies and Lip Gloss and explore the combination of salty and sweet.

A quick shot from a dinner for a private client earlier this month.

Grilled Ny strip, parsley pesto, grilled haricot verts with grilled peaches and toasted almonds, arugula salad, farro salad with feta, tomato, red onion, fines herbs and olive oil poached tomatoes = Summer in your mouth.

Successful night.
