I’m back. The kitchen is treating me nicely again. Because it’s treating me so nicely, I’m going to treat you to a trio of balconized flatbreads. Yes, that’s right: Three different flavour combinations. You could consider them almost an appetizer, main and dessert!I’d like to call it an apology for that flatbread failure on Tuesday. You know where I only created the toppings because my flatbread just wouldn’t work out for me.Once you’ve got your dough ready to go, this couldn’t be easier. So let’s go get right on into it:

Flatbread 1:

½ lb Dough

3 strips Maple Leaf Bacon

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1 sprig Fresh Oregano

3 tbsp Crumbled Feta Cheese

Salt and Pepper

 

Flatbread 2:

½ lb Dough

2 tbsp Olive Oil

½ cup Mushroom Topping (See Tuesday’s post!)

3 tbsp Shredded Parmigiano Reggiano

 

Flatbread 3:

½ lb Dough

¼ cup Hazelnut Spread

3 strips Bacon, crumbled

Directions

1. Roll out your dough on a floured pizza peel nice and thin. I did mine by hand, but if you want to do yours with a rolling pin, that’s fine, too. I made mine long because that’s how I expect a flatbread to be. If you want to make it round, go ahead! I don’t judge!

2. For flatbread 1, I brushed some olive oil all over the surface, seasoned with salt and pepper, then placed down some fresh leaves of oregano. I then brushed over the oregano leaves with my oiled brush to ensure the leaves didn’t burn.

3. I finished by topping with my crumbled bacon (cooked, of course) and some feta cheese.

4. Through your dough onto a hot grill or a super heated oven (as high as it can go). If you have a pizza stone, go ahead and use that! Both of mine shattered, so I had to improvise. I noticed that if I heated up my BBQ as high as it could go, then placed the flatbread on a pizza screen, I got the best results.

5. After a few minutes (mine took no more than 3-4 minutes when my grill read 650F), Take your flatbread off and cut it up into slices for enjoyment.

 

6. Repeat the whole process with your mushroom pizza

7. And even a Hazelnut and bacon pizza! For this one, I cooked the dough with nothing on it, then topped it after I took it off the grill with the Hazelnut spread and bacon. Bananas would be good on this, too!

8. Get creative with these, you don’t have to put what I like on your flatbread. You could even treat these like mini grilled custom pizzas. Go CRAZY!
