Frequently Asked Questions
When are figs in season?
You can find figs in season two times during the year. They are in season in early June and then again in August to October. Of course, this may be dependent on where you are located or what your grocery store carries in it’s produce section.
Can I grill this Refrigerator Dough Fig, Goat Cheese and Prosciutto pizza?
While this has not been tested, it should work, but you will need to grill your pizza crust before adding the toppings. Preheat the grill to a high heat and oil your grill grates. Roll out pizza dough and place directly on the grill approximately 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove immediately, brush with olive oil, and add your toppings.

Sure! You will just need to use your favorite gluten free pizza dough.
Can I use mozzarella cheese instead of goat cheese?
While you could, it won’t be quite as creamy. If you can only find mozzarella cheese, I suggest using fresh mozzarella cheese or burrata cheese which is often found in the deli area of your grocery store.
