Pizza with Prosciutto, Gorgonzola & Balsamic Fig Compote

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

The star ingredient of tonight’s dinner was fresh figs.

Yesterday, my mom gave me a bunch of figs (more reduced produce) and said they needed to be used as soon as possible. They were super ripe and ready to be eaten!

I don’t often use figs in my cooking, so I was stumped what to do with them at first. But, thankfully, the powers of Twitter pointed me in the right direction and Pizza with Prosciutto, Gorgonzola & Balsamic Fig Compote was born! 😉


Balsamic Fig Compote

Inspired by The Olive Press


  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup chopped fresh figs
  • 1 tablespoons honey


Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.


Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and syrupy, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat.


Once the Balsamic Fig Compote was done, I spread it evenly on a homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust.


Next, I topped the pizza with crumbled gorgonzola and chopped walnuts, and then baked it for 15 minutes on 425*F. Finally, I removed the pizza from the oven and topped it with a few slices of thinly sliced prosciutto and returned it to the oven for another 3 minutes.


Viola! De-lic-ious pizza! I actually sort of impressed myself with this recipe! 😉


With dinner, I enjoyed a glass of white wine.



For dessert, I’m having a chocolate Halloween cupcake on the couch in front of the TV. How I Met Your Mother starts right now!

Enjoy the evening, folks! G’night!
