Black Trumpet & Pine Tree Flatbread
Updated: Mar 23
Flatbread with black trumpet mushrooms, pine tips, pine nuts, and za'atar spices. Flatbreads are really just pizza with a creative license. You can put about anything on them - so rather than going out and buying ingredients, see what you have in your cupboard, or growing in your backyard. If I had feta or ricotta cheese, I'd put it on this. But I had a little pecorino, so I used that. A different time I had carrots that I tossed in harissa and added. So really, get pragmatic and creative.
Preheat oven to 475 degrees
For this one, I made whole wheat pizza dough - find you favorite recipe. Make into the size you want with a roller or toss with your hands. I do both. Then I brush olive on it, place it on a baking sheet with parchment paper, and put it in the over for 2-3 minutes. This helps it get a little crispier.
Sprinkle za'atar spice over the oily crust. If you don't have it, a little thyme or rosemary and some chili flakes or powder.
You want to wash black trumpets - they tend to get pine needles and grit at this base, so pull them open with your thumb as you rinse them to make sure nothing is stuck.
Lay them on the crust, then sprinkle on everything else over them.
Bake for about 7-8 minutes.
Eat while warm with a simple salad on the side.
