When you have an epic fail, you have three options: Give up, do it again and hope for a different result, or try something different. After an epic fail trying to make pizza dough from scratch, I surrendered my expectations and used a store-bought dough, making an equally delicious flatbread and saving my sanity.
Crunchy cornmeal crust, jammy figs, and a honey walnut glaze – what’s not to love? This dessert pizza deserves to be eaten as the sun goes down in a garden sipping a crisp wine and savoring the last few days of summer.
I didn’t think making pizza crust would give me a lesson about life, but sometimes cooking is unexpected. This pizza is delicious: the cornmeal crust is crispy but tender, and actually holds up to taking a bite out of a piece without falling apart. The heirloom tomatoes made a sweet and rich sauce, with a hint of spice. The crispy kale added a nice crunchy texture.
