Ingredients
  • 2 Rustic White Flatout Flatbreads
  • 8oz brie cheese, rind removed, room temperature*
  • 1/4cup pesto
  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • 1/8 red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1cup strawberries, diced
  • 1/4cup Gorgonzola(may sub feta)
  • 1/2cup basil, loosely packed, chiffonade**
  • 2tablespoon crushed pistachios
  • 1cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4cup brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Bake flatbreads on a baking sheet for 2 minutes.
  3. Spread brie cheese evenly over flatbreads (it doesn’t have to be perfect because it will melt), and top with an even layer of pesto followed by red onions and pears. Bake for 4 minutes then remove from oven.
  4. Meanwhile add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a small nonstick skillet (you can use a sauce pan but it will take longer to reduce). Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer just until the consistency of syrup. Remove from heat. If Reduction thickens before you use it, then reheat in the pan.
  5. Top flatbreads with strawberries, Gorgonzola, pistachios and basil then drizzle with desired amount of Balsamic Reduction.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Ingredients listed are for 2 flatbreads, so divide ingredients evenly when topping flatbreads.
*Let the brie sit at room temperature while you prepare your other ingredients so it will spread easier. You can also microwave it for a few seconds to soften.
You will want to have all your toppings diced and ready so you can immediately drizzle with Balsamic Reduction because it will thicken and harden as it sits.
***The pistachios add a wonderfully salty crunch. Bacon would also be a delicious substitution.
