Fig Jam on Pizza Dough?
« on: May 26, 2015, 07:51:23 PM »
Just bought some fig jam for use as a sauce for my fig/prosciutto/Gorgonzola pizza.

Problem is that the jam is VERY thick-- almost like a gelled paste.

There is no way I can, I dont think, put this on pizza dough fast enough before it sticks to my peel OR smoothly enough to where it isn't tearing apart my dough.

Can I "cut" it somehow to thin it out? Maybe water? Or something like cognac? The heat from the pizza oven will evaporate the cognac and "dry it" out a bit...

Any thoughts?

I would simply water it down.  A little bit of water is likely to go a long way so don't inadvertantly over do it.

I cut it with rum - it's awesome. Cruzan Single Barrel is my favorite for the task.

Armagnac!!! Fig jam, Armagnac, and Robiola cheese is one of the best dessert pizzas:
