Gourmet Flatbread Pizza With Apples

While I was working at one of my many culinary jobs last week, a cook came into the kitchen with a flatbread pizza recipe.  This particular restaurant is changing its menu and we have been looking at new potential items.  Flatbread pizza is going on the new menu.  For his pizza he used ingredients that we had on hand in the kitchen.  It was really good but I knew I could kick it up to the next level!  My creation is a salute to the Normandy region of France while giving a shout out to Italy.

If you like to cook outside on the grill, this is a perfect treat when you have company and you want to grill to impress.  You can actually do all the steps on the grill.  Cook your onions on a pan on the grill.  Bake the assembled pizzas on the cool side of the grill with the top closed.

 

Gourmet Flatbread Pizza with Apples

4 Flatbread round

2 large sweet onions, julienned

3 TBS butter

4 TBS balsamic vinegar (more if needed)

8 slices of prosciutto

1 apples cored & sliced into thin wedges

2 cups grated gruyere cheese

12 pieces of brie cheese

Salt & pepper to taste

 Preheat oven to 400°

Caramelize the onions until they are very soft and have some really nice color to them.  Once they are caramelized, add the balsamic vinegar.  Stir until the onions have soaked up all the vinegar and have that wonderful color.  Add salt and pepper and set aside. 

For the flatbreads, you can use any kind you like or you can make your own.  I like to use the pocketless flatbreads from Kontos.  They are the perfect size and thickness. 

Brush a little olive oil on each flatbread and grill long enough to leave grill marks on both sides. 

Assemble:

1)   First add the gruyere cheese to one side of flatbread.  Use enough to cover it.

2)   Next add a few spoonful’s of the onions. Again, make sure they are evenly distributed on the flatbread.

3)   Now place the apple wedges, prosciutto, and brie anyway you like on each flatbread (be creative).  Make sure the brie is not covered so that it will melt correctly in the oven. 

Place pizzas in oven (pizza stone if you have it) and bake for about 8 – 10 minutes. 

Enjoy!!!
