Flatbread + Fig, Rosemary, Basil, Goat Cheese

Simply a Bite| Fig Rosemary Basil and Goat Cheese Flatbread
Serving size- dinner for 2
8 oz. Trader Joe's herb pizza dough

1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 sliced figs
4 oz. crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped basil
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
2 tsp. kosher salt
Balsamic reduction-
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey

Time to assemble!
--Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare a clean flat surface and dust with flour. Roll out dough with your flour dusted rolling pin. Try to make dough as even of thickness as possible. Move rolled dough onto flour dusted baking sheet. Brush olive oil evenly over dough coating the entire surface. Sprinkle with salt and rosemary. Place into oven until and let bake until the edges are hardened but not browned.
--While the dough is baking place a small pan or pot onto stove and set to medium high heat. Add balsamic vinegar and honey. Bring to boil and then simmer. Reduction should take 2-4 minutes depending on the consistency desired. Stir occasionally. Once reduced turn off heat and let sit. It will continue to thicken and reduce. Set aside.
--Take dough out of oven once edges are hardened. Reduce oven heat to 350F. Add crumbled goat cheese to dough and place in oven for 2 minutes. Pull flatbread back out of oven and top with sliced figs. You are looking for the goat cheese to slightly melt and dough to be crispy and a nice toasted crust.
--When ready pull pizza out of oven and top with freshly chopped basil. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and honey reduction
