Pimiento Cheese

  • Grate cheeses and mix together

Flatbread

  • Unroll dough and prick all over with tines of a fork to prevent it from puffing up during baking
  • Bake according to package directions but check after 5 minutes. Continue baking 1-2 more minutes until dough is set and just beginning to turn golden. Remove from oven and set aside
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper and place bacon on paper with space in between the slices. Place tomatoes in the spaces
  • Drizzle tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper
  • Roast bacon and tomatoes at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, check bacon for doneness and continue baking until bacon is crispy. Drain bacon and tomatoes on paper towels
  • Break bacon into 1 inch pieces and cut tomatoes in half
  • Spread a generous layer of pimiento cheese on partially baked crust and top with bacon and tomatoes. Sprinkle with scallions
  • Bake flatbread at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes, checking near the end of baking time and remove pizza when crust is golden and cheese is melted and hot.
  • Top flatbread with chopped romaine and cut into squares to serve. Small squares for appetizers and larger squares for main dish servings.
