Servings 1to 2
1flatbreadwe use a low-carb flatbread
1teaspoonextra virgin olive oil
1/3cupshredded part-skim mozzarella
1/4cupcrumbled ricotta salata
2small campari tomatoessliced and placed on a paper towel until ready to use
about 8 Gaeta olivespitted and chopped
1or 2 large handfuls Earthbound Farm Organic Kale Italia blend
3 to 4large basil leavestorn
Preheat your indoor grill pan or outdoor grill on high heat.
Brush the backside of your flatbread lightly with some of the olive oil, then use the remaining oil to brush the top. Add the cheeses, tomato and olives.
Reduce the heat of the grill to medium and place the flatbread onto the grate. Grill just until the cheese begins to get bubbly and the crust begin to get crisp and charred a bit.
Remove from the heat. You may want to use a baking sheet without sides or a cutting board to slide the flatbread onto. Top with the kale mix and the basil leaves. Cut into four or six pieces.
Don’t just think of this as lunch. This makes an awesome appetizer! Create a few different toppings and cut into smaller portions.No grill? You can find a cast iron grill pan that will sit on top of your stove really inexpensively. I love mine and use it often.Gaeta olives are grown in Southern Italy. They have a great tart taste that I love on this flatbread. If you cannot find them, try using Kalamata olives.
