1 10-inch flat bread or small pizza crust
1 medium onion cut into rings
3 ounces of goat’s cheese
Olive oil or butter for sautéing
1-2 teaspoons milk
Salt and pepper to season
- Preheat the oven to 400F and place a rack on the middle shelf
- Sautee onions in olive oil and butter over medium heat until soft. Season with salt and pepper and cover in order to retain moisture
- Brush flatbread with olive oil, place on a baking sheet and pre-bake until crisp for about 5 minutes
- While this is cooking, put the goats cheese into a bowl and add some milk or water so that it becomes spreadable. Whisk until smooth.
- Remove flatbread from oven and spread goats cheese and onion over the top. You can leave some of the onions if you don’t want to include them all.
- Place back in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges become crisp and the onions and goats cheese have warmed through.
- Slice and serve with your desired toppings. Try out basil or a balsamic dressing.
