Fig-errific Summer

As seen Chez Eve - Fresh figs wrapped with prosciutto, sliced fresh mozzarella, a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of Italian herb blend. $4.50 a basket for those figs, but the price is soon forgotten when you eat one!
 I love those intense colors!
 And then the more subtle coral-y pinks.

An heirloom tomato, a peach, a plum, and some figs = summertime.
Craving this pizza so badly, I went down to Olio Pizzeria and sat at the bar by myself. I enjoyed my Moretti beer and this gorgeous Margarita D.O.C. pizza. It has "special" mozzarella on it...much creamier than the normal stuff! The tomato sauce is incredibly fresh and flavorful and the dough is amazing. I sprinkle a little oregano on top and sometimes drizzle a little homemade chili oil (even if it is a bit on the hot side for my palate). So, so, so very satisfying!
