For the Caramelized onions:
Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and sauté. Properly caramelizing onions takes time, don’t rush it - don’t be tempted to raise the heat and risk burning the onions. Once the onions are nice and caramelized, and the volume has gone down significantly, season with salt to taste.
When ready to assemble, spread caramelized onions onto stretched out pizza dough, then sprinkle a small amount of shredded mozzarella on top of the onion layer. Place quartered figs as the next layer, then add the cooked bacon pieces. Spread blue cheese nuggets around the figs and bacon.
Bake in your Cru oven. For a traditional Neapolitan crust bake at 800°-900°F for about 90 seconds turning frequently to prevent burning. For a firmer crust bake around 650°F for abut 4 minutes rotating as needed to ensure even baking. Whatever your temperature always watch your pizza closely.
If your crust is cooked but you want your toppings to brown more, slide the peel underneath your pizza and lift the entire pizza closer to the oven ceiling. As the intense heat rises in the oven, it gathers in the oven's roof. This method takes advantage of that radiant heat, which further caramelizes your cheese and toppings.
