Flat Bread Pizza
When I was in Argentina I think I ate the most delicious pizza of my life. I know, Argentina right? I lived in Palermo and there was this tiny pizza place a couple blocks from my house that had this amazing pizza. I only ate it once or twice, but the time I really remember is the one day I woke up at 5pm (some of you might remember this) and couldn’t handle doing anything else but walk down the street to get one of these pizzas. In Argentina they make fantastic Napolitana pizza that’s topped with garlic, sliced tomato and green olives. This was the inspiration for this dish… and another hangover of course.
What you’ll need:
A slice of Naan bread - you can buy these at any store, Maggie makes a similar pizza on a tortilla, or you could use pita too.
About 3 tbl. of whatever tomato sauce you have in your fridge
1 tbl of goat cheese if you have it, and you like it of course
1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 of a large ripe tomato, sliced
A handful of green olives, sliced
And spices for the topping: Garlic Powder, S+P, Basil, Oregano, etc.
What you’ll do:
Place the flat bread on a baking sheet. Spread the goat cheese on top of the flat bread, then the tomato sauce. Sprinkle half the cheese, then add the tomato slices, the spices, the olives, and the rest of the cheese. Dribble a tiny bit of olive oil over the top if you want for a little extra authenticity (as much as you can get by making the pizza out of a flatbread). Then pop it under your broiler for just a minute or two. Slice her up and enjoy!
Other ideas: Flatbread is a great way to make impromptu pizza of any sort. Top with fresh mozzarella slices, prosciutto and arugula for another authentic twist. Or try Mediterranean flavors like feta cheese, black olives, roasted peppers, or artichoke hearts. Naan is for more than just dippin!
