Equipment

  • brush
  • baking sheet

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon balsamic glaze
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 small flatbread
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 3-5 fresh figs sliced
  • 1/2 shallot
  • 2 ounces goat cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup caramelized onions
  • 2 cups arugula
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Step 1: Preheat The Oven

  • Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C) to ensure it’s hot and ready for baking.

Step 2: Prepare The Flatbread

  • Brush the surface of the flatbread with half of the extra virgin olive oil using a pastry brush or your fingers. This will help add flavor and ensure a crispy texture.

Step 3: Add Toppings And Bake

  • Evenly distribute dollops of softened goat cheese over the flatbread. Next, arrange the sliced fresh figs and caramelized onions on top of the goat cheese. Lay the slices of prosciutto on the flatbread as well. Place the prepared flatbread on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it until the goat cheese begins to melt slightly, and the edges of the flatbread turn golden brown.

Step 4: Prepare The Arugula

  • While the flatbread is baking, in a mixing bowl, toss the arugula with the remaining olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Ensure the arugula is lightly coated with the dressing.

Step 5: Assemble And Serve

  • Once the flatbread is done baking, remove it from the oven. Top the warm flatbread with the dressed arugula, spreading it evenly. Finish off by drizzling balsamic glaze over the arugula and sprinkling cracked black pepper on top for an extra burst of flavor. Cut the flatbread into slices and serve immediately. Enjoy your delicious fig and goat cheese flatbread!

Notes

  • When caramelizing onions, cook them slowly over low heat to bring out their natural sweetness.
  • Opt for ripe figs for maximum flavor.
  • Feel free to experiment with different cheeses like feta or blue cheese for a unique twist.
  • For a vegetarian option, omit the prosciutto and add grilled vegetables such as zucchini or bell peppers.
  • To enhance the flavors, consider adding a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes for a hint of heat.
