Vegetable Flatbread

Yield: 6 each

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough
  • 24oz pizza dough (use your favorite pizza dough recipe or can buy frozen at store)
  • Flour, for rolling dough
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup red onion, sliced and grilled
  • ½ cup local herb goat cheese, crumbled
  • ½ cup pickled vegetables
  • ½ cup greens, cleaned
  • 1 ½ oz fresh herb aioli
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Cut pizza dough into 4oz portions. Roll into small balls and let rest for about 30 min. After resting, flour a work area; with a rolling pin roll out your dough being sure not to let the dough stick to work surface. After your dough is evenly rolled out, brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on grill and give it grill marks on both sides. This process will be very fast, be sure not to burn. After all of your dough is grill marked set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. To Assemble Flat Bread: Spread local goat cheese on to grilled flat bread, sprinkle grilled onions and pickled vegetables evenly. Place in oven for about 3 min,  just to heat the ingredients.
  4. When flatbreads are heated through remove from oven. Garnish with fresh greens and herb aioli and cut how you like.
