Back when I was a Pitt Student, parking was a premium ( and even more so now! ) , and our parking lot near the Business Buildings was turned into a “green space” right after our graduation. I remember being soooo happy that we missed out on this nightmare, less parking at Pitt so they can put in a park? The horror!
Now , on campus, not only is it a beautiful green space, but they have tons of food trucks and little food stands, and this awesome Restaraunt ” The Porch” to feed all the hungry students. Not only am I glad that I missed out on a parking disaster, I am glad that The Porch wasn’t there, because I would go there and eat all of their delicious wood fired Pizzas and Margaritas instead of going to class!! LOL
The Porch is an amazingly delicious restaurant, and they offer a pizza just like this on their menu… as soon as I tasted it , I knew I had to replicate it ( minus the delicous wood fired oven taste! ). This pizza is amazing!
1 cup Trader Joes Fig Butter
2 shallots diced thin
1 cup italian cheese mix shredded
1 log goat cheese sliced into rounds
3 Handfuls of Arugula
Preheat oven to 425. Sautee Shallots in olive oil until caramelized. Lay out pizza dough on pizza stone , or sprayed aluminum foil on a pan. Spread fig jam in a thin layer all over. Add shallots, Then italian cheese, then goat cheese rounds. Cook in oven for about 10 minutes or until crust is browned. Add Arugula and Eat!! 🙂
