Whenever I eat out at a restaurant I always see these pretty flatbreads, I have always wanted to attempt making one, but when we have pizza at home it usually doesn't have green stuff on it haha. My family is visiting from Kelowna for Thanksgiving this weekend, and my Birthday (it is Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday). Because my mom and one sister are over I decided that's enough females to eat this frilly looking "pizza".
Pizza dough for one pizza (Use any plain white dough that can be rolled out flat)
1/4 Cup of Salted Butter softened
1 Tablespoon of Roasted Garlic
150 Grams of Soft Unripened Goat Cheese
4-6 Pieces of Prosciutto
1 Cup of Baby Arugula
Balsamic Fig Reduction
1 Pear Sliced up into thin slices
Olive oil for brushing
Pick any pizza dough that you like and prepare it. Preheat oven to 450F.
Mix softened butter with the roasted garlic, make sure it is well incorporated.
When pizza dough is ready to go, take a rolling pin and roll out the dough till it is 1/2 inch thick and a rough rectangle shape. Prick randomly all over with a fork, so that the air escapes when baking. Let rest for 10 minutes. Rub the garlic butter all over the dough.
Cook the flatbread in the preheated oven for 5 minutes and remove, place goat cheese, sliced pears and then prosciutto on. Put back in the oven and cook for an additional 8 minutes or until the bread is a golden brown and the prosciutto is crispy and shrunk.
Take out of the oven lightly brush the edges with olive oil, allow to cool for 1 minute. Slice up the flatbread by slicing down the center lengthwise and then into pieces width wise (I got about 10 good sized slices). Add baby arugula on top and then drizzle the balsamic reduction all over the top.
As you can tell I forgot to cut the flatbread up before I put the arugula on, trust me do it fist. Also I forgot to put the pears on before I cooked the pizza... I was a bit distracted but trust me with putting them on the pizza first. It was still tasty with them being fresh and just put on the slices but how I originally planned it was in the recipe. So I will make it again and pot those pictures!
