Take-out Tuesday, Fruity Flatbread, Savory or Sweet

 

One of the recipes on the July Recipe Bucket list is

Blackberry Ricotta Pizza with Basil from the Food Charlatan

I thought I had all the ingredients…

 

 

But when this one is around, fruit disappears fast!

There were only 2 blackberries left…

 

 

 

 

So a peach, a few strawberries and red grapes came to the rescue!

 

 

 

 

It has been hot and humid here,

just like so many places in the US in July…

This creamy fruit topped flatbread was a tasty lunch

for HHjr, Super Boy and Big E after their hot morning of fishing last Saturday

 

 

 

 

“What is that Gigi?” asked Super Boy

“We can eat that?!?!” exclaimed Big E

“Oh I thought that was something you were making for dinner,

looks great!” said HHjr…

 

 

 

 

It starts with a can of Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough

 

 

 

 

Unroll dough onto a well greased sheet pan and reshape,

pulling and stretching as needed, into a large rectangle

Prick dough all over with the tines of a fork

Bake at 400 for 8 minutes until it just turns golden

 

 

 

 

Spread with an even layer of ricotta cheese

then top with grated white cheddar

 

 

 

 

Add fruit pieces

 

 

 

 

Top with shaved Parmesan

 

 

 

 

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes

or until crust is golden and cheese has melted

 

 

 

 

Cut into squares to serve

 

 

 

 

Top with crispy bacon, ham or cooked chicken to kick it up a notch!

 

 

 

If you want to make this a dessert pizza,

omit the white cheddar and Parmesan

and use white chocolate chips instead for a sweet treat

 

 

 

Fruity Flatbread, Savory or Sweet

  • Servings: varied
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1 can Pillsbury thin pizza crust {or any pizza crust you like}

1 cup low fat ricotta cheese

sliced peaches, strawberries, blackberries, red grapes or blueberries in any combo or quantity desired

3 oz. Vermont or Sharp White Cheddar, grated

1-2 oz. shaved Parmesan cheese

optional: crispy bacon, ham, or cooked chicken

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Grease or spray a large rimmed baking sheet.  Unroll dough and place on baking sheet, stretching into a full size rectangle.  Prick all over with the tines of a fork.  Bake for 8 minutes, until firm and just turning golden.

Spread ricotta on partially baked crust in an even layer.  Top with grated white cheddar.  Add fruit pieces evenly over cheese.  Add bacon, ham or chicken if desired. Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan.  Refrigerate until baking later if desired.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, until flatbread is heated through, and crust is golden and cheese is melted.

Sweet Version:

To make a dessert pizza, use white chocolate chips instead of the sharp white cheddar and Parmesan
