Caramelized Onion, Apple and Bacon Flatbread Pizza
When apple season and flatbread pizza have a meet-cute, the following recipe is the result! This Caramelized Onion, Apple and Flatbread Pizza has an incredible mix of flavors. From the nutty taste of the cheese, the sweet onion, the sweet apple and the crispy salty bacon – It simply is a taste sensation of epic proportions!
Apple season is well and truly here and if you love a salty/sweet bite AND pizza, this is just what the doctor ordered.
Flatbread, as it’s so aptly named, is called just that because it is pizza dough-style bread, but it contains absolutely no yeast. This way it stays relatively flat and, without yeast, it doesn’t rise all that much. But… it has leavening agents to give it just a little, necessary lift and yogurt to make it light and tender.
Let’s talk about something truly delectable – caramelized onions. While they may not be the labor of love you may think they are, as they do take a little more time to prepare, but it’s time well spent, in my opinion.
Cooking the onions low and slow really is the only way to bring out the amazing sweetness and flavor an onion has to offer. I have a recipe for Curry Caramelized Onions (picture below) that would also be delicious on this flatbread.
Red sweet apples are best for this recipe. The big plus is as they roast, their sweetness intensifies.
You may think that adding yogurt to the dough is quite possibly strange, but it is actually how my Easy Naan Bread is made (< click the text for recipe). I also recently used this dough in my Vegetable Pesto Flatbread which uses homemade Pistachio Pesto which you absolutely must try.
When it comes to shaping flatbread, I like to form it into a rectangle shape which distinguishes it from the typical round pizza. I also find that manipulating the dough into this shape is easier, but you can make it into whichever shape you like based on your mood!
