Paneer & Fig Pizza

Ingredients

12 inches packaged pizza dough or homemade pizza dough
8 to 10 very ripe figs, trimmed and thinly sliced
Salt to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
8 to 10 basil leaves

Preparation

1
Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray the dough with nonstick cooking spray.
2
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.
3
Bake according to the directions given with the dough, 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.
4
Serve topped with fresh basil leaves. If your figs are really ripe, this will taste like a dessert.
5
For a savory version, combine the paneer with some minced cilantro, diced red onions and diced bell peppers.
