We so look forward to fig season around here. Red wine just tastes better with figs.
And there is truly nothing more tasty with figs than blue cheese in our opinion.
Throw these two amazing flavors together with some salty prosciutto on a grilled pizza crust and we are 100% in foodie heaven.
Even better with some arugula and some shaved parm on top.
Served with an amazing Milbrandt Red Blend that was perfect with this seasonal pizza.
