Perfect for a Thanksgiving potluck. Just sayin’!
flatbreads for a party!
these are always a hit, and are so easy to make for a large group of people. similar to pizzas, but thinner and the toppings are more a part of the bread rather than a “topping.” either way, you and your friends will love them.
the reason WE made them was for a kickstarter party! after we raised the money for our magazine through kickstarter they reached out to us and asked if we could teach a short cooking class at their office. naturally we chose something simple, party-friendly and pleasing to omnivores. what fits those criteria better than flatbread pizzas?
each of these are incredibly simple to make. use this simple crust recipe (same as used in a previous hipsterfood pizza.) fill a 9” pan with this dough, then spread on some cashew cheese and whatever mixture of the below toppings you prefer. once your dough, cheese, and toppings are all in your pan bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. keep in mind that you’ll need one serving of the dough recipe and a 3/4 cup of cashew cheese per pizza.
pictured above: chickpea & tandoori-infused oil. mix 1/2 a cup of tandoori paste and 1/4 cup of olive oil, then coat a cup of chickpeas in it. spread the chickpeas over your pizzas and bake!
olive & fresh herb. coarsely chop a can of whole olives. top with spices to taste. we used fresh oregano and parsely.
brown sugar butternut squash (not cheese, i swear! haha). this involves either slicing thew squash really thin and throwing it on the pizza raw or pre-baking small squares in olive oil to soften them up before using them as a topping. whichever way you choose be sure to coat the pizza top in brown sugar and cinnamon for a perfect dessert pizza!
asparagus garlic. the trick to this, as discovered by our fellow kickstarter cooks, is to slice the asparagus vertically down the middle so you don’t have to worry about the thick ones not cooking all the way through and its easier to cover the pizza with the attractive end-pieces. layer that on and coat with minced garlic and spice to taste.
