Fig, Ricotta and Caramelized Onion Sausage Paleo Pizza

Football season is all about the pizza, pasta and cookies.

That is how I grew up with family football Sunday’s watching the game and eating all day long. Thanks to my good friends at Cappello’s I maintain the same traditions and with a conscious lens.

My family also was known to have a fig tree or two which means this time of year we enjoyed picking the figs and eating them right off the tree. I grew up enjoying figs looking forward to the season every year. This pizza uses the seasonal fig with delicious ingredients for a meal that everyone will love. An added bonus is a dairy free ricotta for that authentic Italian BAM.
