Ingredients

10 thin slices    pancetta
200 g / 7 oz     pizza dough
As required    corn meal
45 ml / 3 tbsp    olive oil
As required    freshly ground pepper
6     figs, sliced
500 ml / 2 cups / 250 g    mozzarella cheese, grated

Directions

Preheat the oven to 230ºC / 450ºF. 

In a large non-stick skillet, cook the pancetta until crisp. Set aside.

Stretch the dough into a 30 cm / 12” circle and place on a pizza pan that has been sprinkled with corn meal.

Brush the dough with oil, sprinkle with pepper and arrange three-quarters of the fig slices on top, leaving a 2.5 cm / 1” border.

Arrange the cheese and pancetta on top of the figs and place the remaining figs in a rosette in the centre.

Bake 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown, and the pizza is golden and crisp.

Cut into wedges and serve.
