About The Recipe

Happy Friday, everyone!

Whew…I am so ready for the weekend! This week has been a little bit more chaotic than normal, nothing that we couldn’t handle, just mostly super busy, but I am definitely ready for some rest. This flatbread is the perfect way to kick off a weekend of just chill vibes!

This recipe has been something in my mom’s back pocket for as long as I can remember. She would make it whenever we had company coming during the holiday’s.

Though, to be completely honest, when I was a kid, I really used to dislike it. Oops! It’s definitely a recipe geared more for an adult palette, and now that I’m older, this is definitely one of my new favorite flatbreads to make and eat!

The recipe itself is super simple, only requiring a handful of ingredients, and super fancy without any effort. I mean, fresh asparagus, crispy prosciutto, caramelized onions, finished with lots of goat cheese, all piled on top of a homemade pizza crust and baked to golden perfection.

Does it get any better?

How To Store

This flatbread is best eaten shortly after it’s made, but if there are leftovers, you can store the slices in a zip top bag or wrapped in foil and keep in the fridge for about 1-2 days. To reheat, place desired amount of flatbread on a sheet pan and place in a 350 degree oven. It should be reheated in about 5-8 minutes! Just be sure to keep an eye on it.

Substitutions

  • You can use store-bought pizza dough instead of homemade, but we can’t guarantee cooking times.

  • Make sure to flour your parchment paper and your hands before handling the pizza dough! This is to ensure nothing sticks so it’s a very important step to remember.
  • If you want you dough to stay flat during baking, dock it with a fork or a dough docker.
  • If you don’t have a baking stone, you can bake this on a sheet pan or a pizza pan!
  • Each oven bakes differently. Keep an eye on the pizza while it”s baking.
