Recipe Box, Pimiento Cheese Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Flatbread

Okay, this is one of those “seriously, you have to make this!” recipes!!

A golden dough

spread with a thick layer of homemade pimiento cheese

then topped with bacon, roasted grape tomatoes and scallions

baked

and topped with chopped romaine lettuce

Are you drooling yet?

AND it’s easy peasy to make!

First make the pimiento cheese,

extra sharp yellow cheddar, Vermont sharp white cheddar

chopped pimientos and mayonnaise

Next prebake your crust

I used a crescent roll dough sheet

but you can use any pizza crust dough you want

You can even use naan bread that doesn’t require any prep

Partially bake the dough until it sets and begins to turn golden

You don’t want it cooked completely

because it will cook more after it’s topped

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Place the raw bacon strips on with spaces in between

for the tomatoes

Drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil and

season them with salt and pepper

Roast at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and check,

continue baking 2-5 more minutes if necessary until bacon is done

Drain the bacon and tomatoes on paper towels

Now you’re ready to assemble the flatbread

Tear bacon into 1 inch pieces and cut tomatoes in half

Spread a generous layer of pimiento cheese on baked dough

Put the bacon and tomato pieces over cheese

Sprinkle with scallions

Bake flatbread for 8-10 minutes

or until dough is golden, and cheese has melted

While pizza is baking chop the romaine for the final topping

The cool crisp lettuce is a wonderful contrast

to the crispy bacon, roasted tomatoes and melted cheese

Cut into large squares to serve for main dish

or small squares for appetizers
