MAPLE ROASTED VEGETABLE & CRISPY BACON FLAT BREAD

Posted by Nicole Humphrey on

We couldn't resist one more Bacon recipe for Bacon month!  

If pizza isn’t one of your favorite foods, I think you need to reconsider your choices. However, THIS pizza I’m about to tell you about is going to change your mind completely on what pizza is. I found this recipe on the blog With Salt and Wit. Maple Roasted Vegetable and Crispy Bacon Flatbread is the name of this marvelous creation.

 Now how can it be pizza without sauce, a main meat, and all these veggies? I don’t know how, but it is most definitely pizza. Just ask my brother who scarfed down 4 of these bad boys.

 I think my favorite part was the maple syrup. It caramelized the veggies and, alongside the bacon, that sweet and salty combo was to die for. I’m a veggie fanatic, and this is the best way I’ve ever tasted vegetable. If you aren’t a veggie person, that’s ok! That maple syrup makes it taste like your basically eating candy!

  I used the Humphrey's Stainless Steel Pizza Pan to assist with making this recipe.  Worked like a charm!

 All this bacon is making my stomach so happy! Here’s to bacon month, people!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup butternut squash, cubed small
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped small
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup brussel sprouts, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 oz fontina, shredded
  • 2 9x12 lavash flatbreads
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 6 slices turkey bacon, crumbled (I love Applegate)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven or smoker to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking sheet.
  3. Lay all the chopped veggies onto sheet. Try not to overlap them too much.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and maple syrup. Drizzle over the veggies. Generously season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place in oven and roast for 20 minutes. At the same time, add another baking sheet to preheat for the lavash.
  6. Once the veggies are done. Remove from oven and remove baking dish as well. Put lavash flatbreads onto preheated baking sheet. Spary both sides of flatbread with the cooking spray. (This will help it crisp up.)
  7. Spread veggies out evenly onto both of the flatbreads. Sprinkle with fontina and bacon.
  8. Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until edges are brown and cheese is melted.
