This is my healthier at-home version of our beloved Bo-Beau Kitchen flatbread: goat cheese, beet and jalapeño. AKA three things you wouldn’t really think to put together.
But, it’s so right.
The component that helps bring everything together is a sweet onion-tomato spread. To make this, all I did was heat one large diced sweet onion on the stovetop, liberally seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper. After about 5 minutes, I stirred in three tablespoons of tomato paste, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and removed from the heat.
Next, I went to work on the dough. I’d love to say I made it from scratch, but this came from a package and it was delightful. You can make yours from scratch if you’re fancy like that -this is the best pizza dough recipe and I also love the Bob’s Red Mill mixes- but if you need a little head start, I’m right there with ya.
Next, spread your onion sauce on top plus a soft crumbled cheese of choice. (I went with a container of goat cheese)
Top with sliced steamed beets,
hard shredded cheese (used Manchego), and sliced fresh jalapeños.
Bake according to your dough’s specifications and top with crushed red pepper.
Recreating this recipe was a little more challenging because my menu was clouded by the extreme foodgasm experience. The good news is that it tastes remarkably similar to our favorite restaurant version, albeit a little healthier. It’s easy, delightful, and especially fantastic with a glass of red 😉
