I have a pretty big obsession with figs. I think I am lucky that they are super seasonal, because I feel like there is a large chance that I would overdose and just be not into them anymore, and that would be really sad. I pretty much make these four recipes we already have on the site every time figs are in season, so this is just a natural and delicious addition. I am a big advocate of figs on pizza, and if you have never tried it do it RIGHT THIS MINUTE! You will not regret it and it will be like opening a new world of greatness to your mouth. You’re welcome.
