Flatbread Caprese

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading

  • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more as needed

  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 cup warm water (105°F to 110°F)

  • Extra virgin olive oil

  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds

  • Handful of fresh basil leaves


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar in a large bowl and whisk to blend. Stir in the water until it forms a rough dough.

  2. Sprinkle some flour on a counter or cutting board. Turn the dough out onto the board and sprinkle a bit more flour on top. Knead until the dough becomes a smooth ball, 3 to 4 minutes, adding more flour as needed. Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest on the counter for 10 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  4. Roll the dough into a 9x17-inch rectangle and transfer it to the prepared pan. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and bake 18 to 20 minutes, until golden and crisp.

  5. Meanwhile, combine the mozzarella and tomatoes in a medium bowl. Slice the basil into ribbons and add them to the bowl, along with a drizzle of oil. Season with salt.

  6. Transfer the flatbread to a cutting board. Scatter the mozzarella mixture on top. Cut the flatbread lengthwise, then into triangles. Serve immediately.

*** FARM WIFE TIP: If you're short on time another option is buying a flatbread from the bakery section. They're actually really common! We've also tried the kind that is a mix (kind of looks like those bags of muffin mix in the store), where you just add water. That worked out really well too!
