Pizza night with the girls

Last week Friday a couple of girl friends and I got together for our monthly-ish girl's night.
We usually split up the food prep and drinks and just enjoy it at Ado*'s house. this time I had the idea to make some pizzas (the kind husbands wouldn't eat)
*a nickname, pronounced "ey doh"


My FIL (and, it turns out, a coworker) have fig trees, so I have a decent supply around this time of year. We decided to make fig/goat cheese, and attempted to recreate an herb/potato pizza we had at Leucadia last spring.

*Proceed at your own risk. A napkin might be required for the drool.*

I picked up two balls of pre-made pizza dough (wheat and regular) at a market.  This may just be the best invention ever. Completely worth the $4 it cost us!

Carly and I tossed and stretched like pros and then set the pizzas on boards covered in cornmeal.

Ado started sauteing the potatoes and I carmelized a sliced red onion.
