Ingredients

  • 2 strips thick-cut bacon
  • olive oil for grill
  • 1/3 pizza dough recipe risen and rolled thin
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup grated fresh mozzarella
  • 1 cup sweet cherries pitted and halved
  • 1 to 2 ounce gorgonzola blue cheese crumbled
  • fresh basil leaves for serving
  • balsamic glaze for serving

Instructions

  • In a skillet, cook the bacon until crispy, then coarsely chop.
  • Wipe (either with an old kitchen towel or paper towel that has been dipped in a little olive oil) the grates of your grill with olive oil before preheating it to 425 to 450°
  • Once the homemade pizza dough is stretched to the desired shape and thinness and your grill has preheated, placed the dough onto the lightly oiled grill grates and closed the lid. Grill for 2 to 3 maybe even 4 minutes. Check it and if the underneath is golden and starting to form grill marks, then immediately remove the grilled dough to a large, wood cutting board or pizza peel, placing the uncooked side facing down.
  • To make the garlic olive oil. Start by pouring 1/4 cup olive oil into a small sauce pan. Add in two cloves of finely minced garlic and heat on low to medium-low until fragrant and the garlic starts to toast and turn lightly golden. Remove off of the heat and let cool. Note: this one recipe I used for all three flatbreads.
  • Brush the grilled side of thew flat bread with the garlic olive oil. Top with mozzarella, cherries, cooked bacon and blue cheese. Place the flatbread back onto the grill and close the lid, grilling until the cheeses have melted and the crust is golden underneath.
  • Drizzle with reduced balsamic and sprinkle with fresh basil over top before slicing and serving.

Notes

*This recipe does not figure in the time it takes to make the dough.
