As a busy chef working long hours, when I’m done for the day the last thing I want to do when I get home is make a mess of my kitchen. This quick and delicious brie and prosciutto pizza is just the fix. Great for self indulging or as a starter for your next party, this pizza hits all the notes of sweet, salty, and savoury. With these simple ingredients, and a few easy steps, you end up with a delicious pizza made at home.
To begin, you will need:
- Pre-made flatbread (I used President’s Choice Flatbread, but you can use which ever you prefer)
- Prosciutto (for one square pizza I used about 75g or 5 slices)
- Spreadable Brie ( I used Président brand)
- Balsamic glaze
All these ingredients were picked up at my local grocery store, so no extra stops along the way. Turn the oven on in accordance to the instructions on the package. My oven was at 425, and the flatbread goes in directly on the oven racks giving it a more toasted crust. It heats for roughly 8-10 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven and place on a baking sheet. Spread an even layer of brie, and cut the pizza into however many slices you would like. Top with prosciutto, arugula, and drizzle with olive oil and the balsamic glaze.
Two square pizzas, cut into 8 slices each fed 5 people.
Cost per pizza: $10.00
Alternatives: Instead of using flatbread, Naan is a great substitute. You could also top with toasted almonds to add a nutty flavour with a crunch. If you are not a large brie fan, substitute the spreadable brie with shaved parmigianno.
I encourage you to play around with flavours, and creating your own combinations. We would love to hear what you come up with.
