Grilled Flatbread

A few weeks ago while I was supply shopping with my girlfriend, we both bought a package of pre-made frozen grilled flatbreads.  Yeah yeah yeah, I know. shame on me.  Every once in a while I need a break and since I’m the only one that eats these in my house, I’ll give in from time to time and let someone else take the reigns.

Now these weren’t expensive – maybe $7 for 12 but still… 7 bucks is 7 bucks.

Well this bothered me after I got home.. I hate ‘wasting’ money when I know I can make it cheaper and 10 bajillion times better.

So  that Sunday I set out to make my own.  I knew how to make them and had made them before but I only ever did it on a bbq and since Mr. Fantabulous and I HIGHLY disgaree about my getting a new bbq, I quit making these.  Yes.. I protested making something that only *I* eat… yeah, not so genius there, huh? LOL

I mixed up the dough, rolled these puppies out when it was time and then broke out my cast iron indoor griddle pan.  *Seriously LOVE that thing though it’s a PITA to clean!*

As soon as I put the first round of dough on the grill, that smell hit me.  That unmistakable smell of grilled dough.  Lemme tell you what people.. if you’re never smelled it, it’s *almost* Read the rest of this entry »

Tomato Caprese Focaccia Pizza

With most of you either growing your own veggies or are in heaven with the local farmer’s markets, this is an awesome way to use up some of those sweet plump tomatoes and fresh basil!

Fresh out of the oven

I made this yesterday for the Fantabulous in-laws and they, along with Mr. Fantabulous went NUTS over this!

It’s pretty basic though it will require you to make your own dough from scratch.  But don’t freak out if you’re not dough-savvy, you CAN use pizza dough from your local shop.  I’m sure most local pizza shops will sell you one of their balls of pizza dough.  You can use that.

Now if you use a pre-made dough ball, just stretch it out and bake it as normal.  You don’t have to let it rise.

And no, this isn’t my dough recipe – sorry but that’s part of the TKW Signatures line.  But this is a really great basic dough.


Ready for the oven..

  • 2 tsp rapid-rising dry yeast
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tbl sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 Tbl salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Cornmeal, for dusting
  • 2-3 Tbl olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp Pizza seasoning or dried oregano and basil
  • 4-5 large roma tomatoes, sliced into 1/4” slices.
  • 1 6-7” round piece of fresh buffalo mozzarella, cut into1/4” slices
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into slivers (chiffonade cut)
Herbed Oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  1. In a bowl whisk together all of the ingredients for the herbed oil.
  2. Cover and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook, proof the yeast by combining it with the warm water and sugar. Stir gently to dissolve.
  4. Let stand for 5-7 minutes or until foam appears and it bubbles.
  5. Add the flour to the dough and mix for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add in the olive oil and mix for 2 minutes.
  7. Add in the salt and turn the mixer to medium. Mix for 7-8 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. If it’s sticky, add flour as necessary.
  8. Remove the dough from mixer and put in a greased bowl/bucket.
  9. If using a bucket, close the lid (make sure it’s a large bucket). If not, cover with plastic wrap and let double in size (about 45 minutes).
  10. Take a sheet pan (jelly roll pan) and drizzle with a little olive oil. Spread around.
  11. Sprinkle with corn meal.
  12. When the dough is doubled, turn it out onto the pan.
  13. Stretch it out so it’s evenly distributed on the pan and in the corners.
  14. Preheat oven to 400.
  15. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  16. Uncover the dough and gently dimple with your fingertips.
  17. Drizzle with 2-3 Tbl olive oil.
  18. Sprinkle the Pizza Seasoning.
  19. Bake in the middle rack for 18-20 minutes. You just want it partially baked.
  20. Put oven to 450F.
  21. Remove from the oven and add a piece of mozzarella, slice of tomato and few strips of basil.
  22. Repeat until the entire pizza is covered.
  23. Drizzle the herbed oil over top of the vegetables.
  24. Add 1 tsp of sea salt (sprinkle over top).
  25. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is just melted.
  26. Remove from oven and cut.
  27. *If you want the crust to be crispy, when you remove it from the oven, using a pizza peel place the cooked pizza directly on the rack for 1-2 minutes. Watch as you don’t want to burn it.
