Bruschetta Flatbread


I love anything with tomatoes, basil and balsalmic vinegar.  I mean anything.  But my favorite is flatbread.  There is a restaurant in Farmington (Twigs) that serves this as an appetizer and it is so good.

Well I found the best recipe for grilled bruschetta flatbread and I am somewhat infatuated with it.  I could eat this every night.  It is fast, simple and so delicious.

    • 1 pound whole-wheat pizza dough  ( white is great too)
    • 2 ½ cups chopped tomatoes
    • 3 teaspoons basil, chopped plus more for garnish
    • 1 ½ garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 ½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar, plus more to drizzle
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • Pinch of pepper
    • ½ cup pesto
    • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into chunks
    • For the drizzle, I use balsamic glaze.  You can make your own or it can be found at most supermarkets.  The store bought stuff is really as good as the homemade without the whole house smelling like vinegar!!
  1. Heat grill.
  2. In a medium bowl toss, tomatoes, basil, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Divide dough into three equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rectangle. (It’s easier to grill this way)
  4. Soak a paper towel in a bit of olive oil, quickly run the towel on the grates to prevent the dough from sticking. Using your hands or a pizza wheel, place pizza dough directly onto the grates of the grill. Cook until slightly charred, about 2-3 minutes. Flip dough over.
  5. Spread a ⅓ of the pesto over the pizza then dot with ⅓ of the cheese. Close the lid and cook until the dough is cooked and the cheese is melted, another 4-5 minutes.
  6. Remove flatbread from grill and spoon tomato mixture over. Sprinkle with extra basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze

This would be great for Super Bowl Sunday!!

Arugula Salad with Lemon Dressing

There is a wonderful little pizza place at Farmington Station called Settabellos.  They have great pizza and flat breads but I really love their Arugula Salad.  I have become somewhat obsessed with Arugula and love it in salads and on sandwiches and pizza.  There is something about that kind of peppery taste that I just love.  This salad is so easy and so good.  There is one requirement though, you need a really great bowl to serve it in.  I got this great metal one at a new little store on Main street in Kaysville.  It is locally made and I just love it.  Just about everything you serve in it looks better.




5 TB good olive oil

2 TBs fresh lemon juice  ( like a little more)

1 tsp freshly grated lemon peel

1/3 cup parmesan cheese

Blend all ingredients in food processer . Season well with salt and pepper.  Chill

To assemble, mix about 4 cups of arugula with dressing.  Garnish with shaved parmesan and cherry tomatoes if desired.  Season well.  I like to add some good croutons also.

This is also really good as a flatbread topper.  Brush your pizza dough with olive oil and top with mozzarella cheese,  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Bake as usual and when done top with the above salad.  Amazing!!!!!
