Recipe: Flatbread with Grapes, Gruyere, Rosemary and Red Onions
- 1 pound prepared pizza dough
- All purpose flour, for dusting
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- A wedge of red onion, sliced paper-thin
- 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh rosemary
- 2 cups red and purple seedless grapes, cut in half
- 4-5 ounces shredded gruyere cheese (or use emmenthal)
- Heat oven to 450F degrees.
- Place the dough on a floured board, and roll it out to at least a 12-inch diameter. Mine was about 12 by 14 inches, to fit my pan. Transfer to a baking sheet. 
- Brush olive oil over the crust. Top with the onions, then rosemary, then grapes, then cheese.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Edges of the crust and the cheese will be brown. Remove from oven and transfer flatbread to a cutting board. Allow to cool for a minute, then cut into pieces.
- Good served warm or at room temperature.
- Serves 8.
You can buy prepared pizza dough in many grocery stores, Trader Joe’s, and other specialty shops. It’s usually in the refrigerated section, along with cheeses, prepared guacamole, prepared salads, etc. Or make your own if you wish!
I had some left over, so I reheated it the second night and ate it dolloped with olive tapenade made from black ripe California olives, using this basic recipe . Dare I say it? It was EVEN BETTER!
