I developed some recipes for an event with Flatout Flatbread and Hungry Girl/Author Lisa Lillien. Flatout Flatbreads are available at the deli counter in most supermarkets.
Flatout Pizza Margarita with Herb Roasted Tomatoes
The herb roasted tomatoes and chili oil pair well with the thin cracker crust of the Flatout Flatbread. Makes 2 pizzas. The herb roasted tomatoes can be made several hours ahead of time. The flatbreads (and tomatoes) can alternatively be made on an outdoor grill
6 Roma tomatos
Assorted herb bunches including parsley, oregano, and thyme (or whatever is in your fridge)
5 oz or so Fresh Mozzarella
Basil leaves, large ones torn
Flatout thin crust flatbread, rustic white
Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a generous bunch of herbs on the paper. Slice the tomatoes 1/2 inch thick and place on top of the herbs, sprinkle with salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Bake in the oven for about an hour, or when the tomatoes are soft and browning in spots. Let the tomatoes cool warm/room temperature
To assemble the pizzas, preheat the oven to 375. Pre bake the Flatout flatbreads for 4 minutes on a baking sheet, then remove from oven. Scatter the roasted tomatoes on the flatbread sparingly, then sprinkle with some basil and top with pieces of mozzarella and bake until the chess is melted and the flatbread is toasty brown, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with some fresh basil and drizzle on some chili oil.
Black Pepper caramelized chicken Bahn Mi
This recipe makes a wrap out of one of my favorite recipes . One recipe of chicken will make at least 6 wraps.
Carmelized black pepper chicken (no rice)
whole romaine lettuce leaves
carrot and daikon, cut into thin matchsticks
Flatout Flatbread orignal wraps
Prepare the chicken filling and let cool to warm/room temperature. Arrange the wrap so it is facing you longwise and place one or romaine leaves on the wrap. Place a generous portion of chicken on the bottom third of the wrap, and put the carrots, cilantro and daikon on top. Roll the banh mi into a tight package and cut in half
Bison Slider stuffed with pimento cheese
The Flatout flatbread foldits are perfect for sliders. The health benefits of the Bison make up for the pimento cheese. One pound of ground bison will make at least 10 sliders
1 lb ground bison
Flatout Flatbread foldits sliders, classic white
Pickle slices and pimento for garnish
To make the sliders form a small disk of ground bison using the slider bread as a size guide and make a small impression in the middle. Place a scant teaspoon of the cheese in the middle of the bison disk, and top with another disk of ground bison. Take care to pinch and seal the circumference of the slider to prevent the cheese from escaping while cooking. If time allows, refrigerate the prepared sliders for at least an hour. I have no proof, but I think the refrigeration helps keep the cheese inside the slider.
Preheat a nonstick pan or well seasoned griddle to medium and cook the sliders about 4 minutes a side. Place slider in Flatout slider bread, close and stab the sandwich with a toothpick, pickle slice, and pimento piece.
Strip Steak and Gorgonzola Flatbread Pizza
A great lunch, appetizer or light weeknight meal. Foolproof. Makes 2 pizzas
6-8 ounces thinner sliced New York Strip or other cut–sirloin works great
4 0z Gorgonzola or other blue cheese reduced to chunks–not crumbles
Flatout thin crust rosemary and olive oil flatbread
On a grill or grill pan, cook the steak until rare or medium rare. It is ok to undercook a little here as the steak will cook in the oven when the pizza is assembled. Let the steak rest 10 minutes and carve against the grain into 1/2 inch slices.
Preheat the oven to 375 and pre bake the flatbreads for 4 minutes and remove from the oven. Place the slices of steak and cheese on the pizzas and bake for 5-10 minutes, until the crusts are browning and the cheese has melted. Top the pizzas with a generous handful of arugula–It may look like too much the the heat from the pizza will wilt the greens slightly.
Top with a drizzle of rosemary oil (or EVOO)
Muffalata wrap with house made Giardinare
A tasty and easy party appetizer or even better picnic fare. These can be cut into pinwheels for appetizers. If the assembled wraps are left whole, they pack and travel well. Giardinare is easily found in supermarkets, if it is too chunky, chop it a bit to facilitate wrapping….
Flatout Flatbread, the original.
Giardinere, jarred or homemade
Pitted green olives
Mortadella, Capicola, and Genoa salami, sliced thin from the deli
Provolone cheese, sliced thin
Place two slices of fresh mozzarella on an Flatout wrap, follow with the one or two slices each of ham, mortadella and salami, and provolone. Put a generous spoonful of giardinare on the lower third of the wrap and roll into a compact bundle. Slice as appropriate.
