Fig and Goat Cheese Pitas

Dan Goldberg
 4 pita breads (7 in. wide)
 1 tablespoon olive oil
 1 clove garlic, peeled and halved
 9 firm-ripe fresh figs (about 12 oz. total; see note above)
 6 ounces fresh chèvre (goat cheese)
 3 tablespoons honey
 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  Salt and cracked black pepper
Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Lay pita breads on two 12- by 15-inch baking sheets and bake until lightly golden and slightly crisp at the edges, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 2

While breads are still warm, brush with olive oil and rub generously with the cut sides of the garlic clove.

Step 3

Rinse and stem figs. Cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick wedges. Distribute wedges over breads. Crumble goat cheese over the top and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with thyme leaves and salt and pepper to taste.
