Sometimes a flatbread is all you need for a simple and delightful dinner, or sometimes you might enjoy this as an appetizer to share with others and as a precursor to a larger dinner. Enjoy this with a glass of wine and some apple or pear slices, a charcuterie board loaded with cheeses and meats, nuts and other goodies. We love pizza here and although this flatbread uses a gluten free pizza dough, it is completely different than a pizza! Try this with your own favorite gluten free dough recipe or my Laura’s Favorite Gluten Free Pizza Dough recipe or my Gluten Free Sourdough Pizza Dough recipe. Usually I say to roll or flatten each dough ball to a 9 1/2 or 10″ round, but this flatbread you could roll to a 12″ if you like for a thinner crust. Often I make a full recipe of Gluten Free Pizza Dough, use one for our pizza night and save the other wrapped in cellophane in the refrigerator and remove an hour before I want to put a flatbread together. And you can get creative with toppings, using any you like. We had roasted chicken the night before which was perfect on this. You could also use a rotisserie chicken. I usually drizzle olive oil on the rolled crust before I add the rest of the toppings.
I hope you like it!
Gluten Free Flatbread with Chicken, Dubliner Cheese, and Sun Dried Tomato
Makes 1 flatbread
Serves 2 as a dinner compliment or 3-4 as an appetizer
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 10-14 minutes at 450 degrees
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 – 3/4 cup of cooked chicken, cut into pieces or sliced (leftover roasted chicken works well)
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes, packed in oil, drained and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup grated Dubliner cheese
1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Pecorino cheese
4 large garlic cloves, sliced fine
2-3 short sprigs of fresh rosemary, stems removed, minced or 3/4 teaspoon of dried rosemary
3/4 teaspoon of dried oregano
1 1/2 tablespoon of honey, drizzled on top
gluten free cornmeal for sprinkling on baking stone
Remove one dough ball 45 minutes to one hour before you want to put the flatbread together.
On a well floured board, roll or flatten using your fingers to push the dough out to a 10 – 12″ round (or make this oval….there are no rules).
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. (You can also preheat a pizza or baking stone, but these will cook fine without that step).
Prepare a stone or baking tray, by greasing with a little olive oil, and sprinkle gluten free cornmeal on the center (roughly as large as the flatbread is).
Slide the dough round onto the baking sheet before topping. Add a drizzle of olive oil on the crust. Mix the cheeses together in a bowl. Add half of the total cheese across the crust evenly. Add the sun dried tomatoes, chicken, and garlic, spreading evenly. Add the remainder of the cheese to the top. Sprinkle with the herbs and drizzle with another tablespoon of olive oil. Drizzle the honey over the top.
Bake in the center of the oven until the crust is starting to brown on the outside edge and the cheese is also starting to brown, and when the bottom crust is golden brown.
Remove to a cutting board and cut in half and slice in strips or cut as you would a pizza in 8 slices.
