Pig Ear’s Pizza – Disgusting or delicious?

It’s not everyday that we hear something as such and its mainly because it sounds a tad bit nasty. Although the name is not so pleasant in our own ears, maybe the pig’s ear can be pleasant to our own tongue – just maybe.

Savour this pizza that tastes like New York City’s Motorino that contains crispy veggies, combined with pancetta and pecorino. But be warned of the pig’s ear as it entails careful techniques in making it fit the pie. Honest suggestion: fry it up then top it on your perfectly made artisan pizza.


1 ball of dough suitable for 1 large pizza

2 large fresh figs, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon fig balsamic vinegar or balsamic vinegar

Goat cheese


Fresh basil


1. Preheat your oven to the highest possible temperature and have your round of dough proofed and stretched out, either on a baking sheet or pizza peel.

2. Using a pastry brush, brush each slice of fig with the vinegar and set aside.

3. Very quickly take the pizza out and scatter all of the goat cheese on the pizza. Bake for 1 more minute. Top with fresh basil and serve immediately.
