This asparagus, mushroom shallot flatbread is crispy, chewy flatbread and covered in bubbly brie! Goes perfectly with a fresh arugula salad and wine.

This is the result of cleaning out the fridge.

I basically scoured my pathetically empty produce drawer and came out with asparagus and mushrooms… I just threw in the shallot for funsies. The best part? I got to eat this all. by. myself. It’s such a shame that no one in my house will eat anything that has or is currently touching mushrooms. So sad for them… and yaaaay! more for me!!

Do you ever just crave a pizza but want to skip the red sauce? {please tell me I’m not a lone on this boat}.

Know what I mean?

This springy flatbread is just the ticket.

There’s a million and one things you can do with asparagus and I particularly love them grilled, roasted, in quiche, made into “fries” and now… under brie cheese and on my flatbread pizza.

What’s that? You love asparagus toooo? Best friends for life.

Now let’s do this.

Spring Vegetable Flatbread l www.SimplyScratch.com asparagus

Start by thinly slicing 5-6 asparagus tips. If you have a mandolin, go on and shave them… I find slicing them this way, by knife, is way easier and I get to keep my fingertips. Win-win.

Slice up 3-4 mushrooms. I’m using cremini or baby portabellas… they’re my fave, but really any mushrooms are fine.

You’ll also need one large shallot, sliced vertically. Leeks would also work splendidly here… just slice thin, rinse in cool water to loosen any grit, drain, pat dry with paper towel and that’s it.

I totally dig brie cheese on my flatbread.

I’ve used it before, but this time I kept it simple by slicing it thin and not bothering to remove its edible wax coating. I’m all about saving time, my friends. Save time = wine time… and the sooner the better.

Then on a rimmed sheet pan, drizzle a good amount of olive oil… about 2 tablespoons.

Earlier I made a double batch of my flatbread dough. One for me and one for the rest of my family. 😉

Then once raised, punch it down to deflate the dough and then roll it out thin on a floured surface.

So somewhere in between rolling the dough out and arranging the toppings I must have forgotten to take pictures. Lucky for you {and me} the steps are super simple and you’re not really missing much.

After you’ve stretched the dough out, drizzle with a little more olive oil over top, scatter with the slice asparagus, mushrooms and shallots. Then arrange the brie cheese in a complete obsessive compulsive manner (just kidding that just applies to me) and sprinkle kosher salt, black pepper.

You can also drizzle more olive oil over top before baking if you wish to. I did.

Pop it into a preheated 500° oven to bake for about 15-18 minutes or until the crust is a deep golden and the cheese is a bubblin’. Watch it like a hawk so it won’t burn.

Cut. Serve. Inhale. Repeat.
