Easy Flatbread Pizza with Sicilian Seasoning

YIELD: 2 servings            PREP TIME: 7-10 min          COOK TIME: 10-14 min   

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 piece lavash bread (~ 9 inches x 12 inches)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons olive oil to lightly coat both sides of the lavash bread +  3 tablespoons olive oil needed to make Sicilian Seasoning Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Spice Your Life Salt-Free Sicilian Seasoning
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic puree
  • 1 ½ teaspoons anchovy paste
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
  • ~ ¼ cup roasted garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup black olives
  • 1-2 slices prosciutto, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • ¼ -1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh basil, sliced
  • ~ ½ teaspoon Aleppo Pepper Flakes (for sprinkling on top, to taste)

Instructions:

Prepare Sicilian Seasoning Oil (this will be the “pizza’s sauce”) by heating 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a small frying pan over medium low heat. Add Salt-Free Sicilian Seasoning to the oil and whisk together while continuing to gently warm the mixture for ~ 30 seconds to bloom the seasoning. Remove from heat and whisk in garlic puree and anchovy paste. This salt-free mixture will be slightly bitter so to reduce that bitterness, season with a pinch of salt if desired. Set aside.

Place the lavash bread onto a sheet pan. Lightly brush both sides of the lavash with ~1 ½ teaspoons olive oil, split between the 2 sides. Lightly brown the lavash in a broiler for 1-2 minutes. After the top side has developed multiple toasted golden-brown areas, remove the pan from heat. Flip the lavash gently and return the pan to the broiler. Continue toasting the bread for an additional 1-2 minutes, until the top surface has developed its own multiple toasted golden-brown areas. Remove from the oven. After toasting both sides, the bread should be somewhat firm and crispy, but not burned.

Next begin assembling the pizza by brushing Sicilian Seasoning Oil (assembled in the 1st paragraph above) over the entire top side of the lavash. Place the sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, roasted garlic, and prosciutto on the prepared lavash. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top.

Place the assembled pizza into your oven and broil for ~5-10 minutes until the cheese begins to melt. Check the pizza every 1-2 minutes throughout this process and remove before the lavash bread burns. Remove from the oven and spread the sliced basil on top. Slice the pizza. Serve with Aleppo Pepper Flakes on the side and sprinkle on top if you like a little mild, lingering heat on your pizza.

Note:

This pizza can also be made on a grill at medium to low heat, using a pizza stone or other heat tolerant pan. Cooking times will vary for grilled pizza, so check on the pizza every 1-2 minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn.

Substitute your favorite pizza toppings as desired. Bon Appetit!
