Flatbread Pizzas with Romesco Sauce, Portobello Mushrooms, Mozzarella and Smoked Gouda


Servings: 4


Romesco Sauce:
1/3 cup canned fire-roasted tomatoes, drained
1/3 cup bottled roasted red peppers, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon roasted garlic (home roasted or purchased)
3 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted
3 tablespoons Wisconsin parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

4 flatbreads, such as pocketless pita or naan
1 1/2 cup (6 ounces) Wisconsin mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cup (6 ounces) Wisconsin smoked gouda cheese, shredded

4 large portobello mushrooms, grilled and sliced
Red pepper flakes, to taste
Fresh basil leaves, sliced, optional

Cooking Directions:

Romesco Sauce:

Place all ingredients in a blender and purée. Set aside.


Preheat oven to 350°F. Place flatbreads on 2 large cookie sheets sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and top each flatbread with 1/4 of the romesco sauce.

Reset oven to 375°F. In a bowl, toss mozzarella and smoked gouda together. Sprinkle the cheese, divided equally, over the 4 flatbreads. Top each with mushroom slices and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Bake until cheese melts and crusts crisp, about 12 minutes. Sprinkle pizzas with fresh basil, if desired.
