    Prep time: 10 min plus a 15 minute cook time
    Serves: 8-12 as an appetizer or 2-3 as a meal
    Pairs well with: A crisp glass of white wine, Gin and Tonic, or seasonal cocktails

    Ingredients:

    • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
    • 1 lb. of purchased or prepared pizza dough (Trader Joe’s has an excellent and inexpensive fresh already made pizza dough that is perfect for this)
    • 1 ¼ cup shredded Fontina cheese
    • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
    • 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese
    • 1/3 cup chopped fresh Medjool dates
    • 4 ounces of thinly sliced Prosciutto, torn into rough pieces
    • Fresh ground pepper
    • Good quality balsamic vinegar to drizzle over your flatbread (optional)

    Method:

    1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
    2. On a half sheet pan, grease your whole pan with 2 tbsp. of the olive oil to cover.
    3. Divide your dough in half and stretch out each half into a 5×14 oblong piece and set them side by side onto your prepared baking sheet.
    4. Brush each piece with the remaining one Tbsp. of olive oil making sure to get the edges to make the crust nice and crisp.
    5. On each piece of dough, top them with the shredded fontina cheese, gorgonzola, red onion and chopped medjool dates.
    6. Put into your preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown and the cheese is melted.
    7. Once out of the oven, top with freshly ground pepper to taste, and drape Prosciutto pieces over the flatbreads.
    8. Lightly drizzle your balsamic vinegar over the flatbreads, cut them into triangles and serve.
