California-Style Grilled Flatbreads Two Ways!

Tomato Onion Flatbread

Have we got a treat for you!  

Last weekend I made California-Style Grilled Flatbreads and we all fell in love.  The combinations are simple and quick to put together….

 

Fig  

One is made with creamy mozzarella, lovely California fresh figs and fresh basil.  I think I may want to make it every night that figs are in season!

The other was made with fresh tomato, caramelized onion and California blue cheese.  Such amazing flavors!

Either way, you are sure to love either one of these Grilled Flatbread recipes.  I suggest trying them both, inviting over some friends and holding your own flatbread challenge!

You see what I’m sayin’?  

You cannot go wrong!

 

I had the luxury of baking these in an outdoor pizza oven, but just heat up your oven to the hottest setting, grab a pizza stone and let’s make some flatbread….

Grilled Flatbread Prep

We start with our dough.  We got fancy and made our own dough, which I highly recommend, but feel free to use pre-made flatbread to keep things extra easy.  You can use our dough recipe from this Nectarine Pizza a few years ago!

For the California Tomato and Onion flatbread, follow the first two steps with the olive oil and mozzarella.

Next come the caramelized red onion pieces (that I had in a sauté pan from the beginning of this process) sautéed in olive oil.
