These were amazingly good and very easy to make! If you don’t have time to make the dough, just for premade flatbread’s at your grocery store. I don’t like pita bread for this recipe because it’s a bit hard and it gets too crispy when it bakes. The flatbread is fluffy and soft almost like bread pillows ))
Flatbread with Gorgonzola, Caramelized Onions & Arugula
1 T olive oil
3 T butter
3 medium onions, sliced very thin
3/4 c water
1/2 t dry active yeast
2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
4 c arugula, loosely packed
1 c gorgonzola cheese
black pepper, to taste
In a sauté pan, add olive oil and butter, over medium-low heat, until butter has melted. Add onions and stir well. Let onions cook 40-50 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are deep brown (reduce heat to low or add an additional 1 T butter if onions begin to burn). Set aside.
Preheat oven to 500F. In a small bowl, add water and dry active yeast. Stir well, and set aside 3-4 minutes until yeast has dissolved. In a food processor, add flour and salt. Blend. Through the hole in the cover, slowly pour in the water-yeast. Dough will quickly form into a bowl. Transfer dough to a floured surface and divide into two equal size balls. If needed, knead dough until smooth, 1 minute. Roll each ball out until very thin, but not transparent. Transfer to individual baking sheets.
Bake dough 4-5 minutes, until beginning to brown. Remove from oven. Top each dough with a drizzle of olive oil, arugula, caramelized onions and gorgonzola cheese. Bake 5-7 minutes, until edge begin to brown. To serve, slice flatbread and sprinkle with black pepper, to taste
I did add some minced red onion and a drizzle of balsamic reduction to ours. SO GOOD!
