Cheese and Herb Flatbread

20 minutes prep 15 minutes active cooking 35 minutes total
Makes 4 - 6 servings

Inspired by the cheese and herb-filled flatbreads of...

Georgia and Armenia like khachapuri and jingalov hats, these take advantage of the ready-to-bake pizza dough we get from Scottie’s Pizza.

While the traditional versions are often folded over and cooked on griddles, these stick with the familiar pizza form and bake in a hot oven.

Brooklyn native Scottie Rivera has always loved pizza...

but it wasn't until a cross country move to Portland, Oregon that he began to consider it as a serious career option. After years of refining his sourdough process, he now makes some of the city's most beloved pies and sells out most nights he's open.

What you'll have to do

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 500F with the rack near the top. Let the dough come to room temperature.

Step 2

Lightly flour a work surface. Cut the ball of dough in half, stretch or roll to thin circles about 6-8 inches in diameter. Place the flatbreads on lightly oiled skillets or baking sheets.

Step 3

Combine the herbs, green onions, 1/4 cup farmers cheese, 1/2 cup grated cheddar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon silk chili, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Spoon half of the mix onto each flatbread, spreading into an even layer that covers all but about 1/2 inch from the edge.

Step 4

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the exposed edge of the crust is beginning to brown. Remove from the oven and brush olive oil on the exposed crust. Return to the oven for a few minutes if you like a darker, more crispy crust.
