Take-out Tuesday, Festive Flatbread


We love pizza and flatbread around here

On busy days it sure makes an easy dinner

And homemade is so much better than take-out!





HH fixed this fabulous one for my birthday dinner

He topped a very thin crust with a layer of Fleming’s Blue Cheese Dressing*

Then added asparagus, pear slices, and prosciutto

*or use ranch dressing or your favorite creamy bottled dressing





I was in heaven!

He also recently made a similar one that was all vegetable




Asparagus, corn, mushrooms, red onion and cheese

There was not a sauce on this one, he lightly brushed the partially baked crust with olive oil

then added the vegetables and cheese





So good!

You won’t even miss the meat,

but chicken and/or of course, bacon, would be great additions





Pizza does not have to be heavy, greasy and loaded with calories

A thin crust, fresh vegetables and low calorie cheeses make a satisfying meal for the busiest of days!




Asparagus, Pear & Prosciutto Flatbread

1 can thin refrigerated pizza crust dough*

1/2 cup Fleming’s Blue Cheese Dressing, or any creamy salad dressing

1 ripe pear, sliced {no need to remove skin}

4 oz. prosciutto

12-16 asparagus spears, with tough ends broken off and cut into 1 inch pieces

4 oz. grated Italian blend cheeses or freshly grated Parmesan or Mozzarella

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Unroll dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and prick all over with a fork.  Partially cook dough, 6-8 minutes until it is firm and just starting to turn golden.  Remove from oven.  Spread with a layer of salad dressing Top evenly with pears, asparagus pieces and torn prosciutto.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Return to oven for 8-10 minutes until golden and bubbly.  Cut into large squares for main dish or smaller squares for appetizers.

Fleming’s Blue Cheese Dressing

1 cup quality mayonnaise like Duke’s or Hellman’s

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup sour cream

1 T fresh lemon juice

1 T red wine vinegar

1 T sugar

1 T olive oil

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

7 oz Blue Cheese {I used 7 oz Boar’s Head blue cheese}

Combine everything except cheese and mix well. Crumble blue cheese and stir into mixed ingredients. You want it to be chunky. Refrigerate to blend flavors. Serve as a dressing or a dip with fresh vegetables or chips. Use within 10 days.  Makes about 2 cups.

2-3 T olive oil

4-6 oz. grated white cheese, like Fontina, mozzarella, Italian blend, white Cheddar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Unroll dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and prick all over with a fork.  Bake for 5-6 minutes until firm and just starting to turn golden.  Remove from oven and brush with olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Top with 1/2 of cheese.  Top evenly with vegetables and cover with remaining cheese.  Return to oven and bake for 7-10 more minutes until golden and cheese has melted.

*substitute 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed or 1 cup canned corn kernels, drained
