Gruyère, Fig, and Balsamic Shallot Pizza

today was a perfectly miserable day outside. it rained all day. no, it poured. we got a total of 4" of rain in 12 hours.
i basically sat on the couch all day in my pj's and plowed through stieg larsson's "the girl who played with fire". i flew through "the girl with the dragon tattoo" and couldn't wait to get my hands on the second book. i am 9/10ths of the way through it and am already planning to dive right into his third and final book, "the girl who kicked the hornets nest".
i finally got myself off the couch around 5:30, took a shower and made dinner. it was quick, easy, and amazingly delicious. the pictures aren't pretty, but this was amazing. gruyère, fig, and balsamic shallot pizza. YUM!
i actually threw on a bunch of arugula at the last minute. too bad i immediately inhaled it and didn't take a final photo. (again, my apologies for the poor one above.) this pizza barely even justifies a recipe. basically i caramelized some thinly sliced shallots (low and slow over medium-low heat with a little olive oil and salt) and added some balsamic vinegar. i let that reduce down until it was thick and poured the balsamic and shallots over some rolled out whole wheat dough. then i sprinkled some shredded grueyere cheese and laid some thinly sliced figs on the top. 12 minutes in a 450 degree F oven and it was wonderfully, bubbly, and browned. i devoured every bite.
