    Instructions
    For the Dough
    1. In a small bowl, add water and sprinkled the yeast over the top. Stir gently and let sit for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, add flour, salt, and sugar. Make a well and pour the yeast into the center. With a fork, slowly begin incorporating the yeast into the dough until the dough comes together and becomes too hard to mix with your fork. Flour your hands and begin to make it into a ball. Knead the dough on a floured surface until you have a smooth, springy, soft dough ball. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl. Cover it with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it double in size (about 45 minutes).
    For the Pizza
    1. Preheat the oven to 475ºF. Dust a surface with flour. With rolling pins (or by hand), create the desired shape and thickness of your pizza (or divide into two pizzas). Sprinkle a little flour or cornmeal on a baking sheet or pizza stone and place the pizza dough on top. Mix together the ricotta and mascarpone until it’s smooth and creamy. Spread the mixture evenly over the pizza dough. Place rounds of fresh mozzarella over the entire pizza. Sprinkle with sliced figs. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the bottom and sides of the pizza are a deep, golden-brown. Remove the pizza from the oven. Spread the arugula over the pizza. Top with tears of prosciutto and parmesan ribbons. Drizzle the olive oil over the pizza and sprinkle with sea salt and optional red pepper flakes. Serve immediately.
