Not too long ago, I created a post on bacon and egg flatbread. The flatbread was such a hit that I had to make another! This time I’m going a little more fancy with a fig, salami and goat cheese flatbread drizzled with reduced balsamic vinegar. A dish that’s easy to make and tastes delicious!
**Helpful tips and common mistakes
The great thing about flatbreads is that the combination of toppings is endless! Flatbreads are very similar to pizza if not identical, except that most if not all flatbreads have no sauce. There are white pizzas but there are also pizzas with tomato sauce or white sauce; flatbreads generally are sauce-less.
I came up with the toppings for this flatbread just by looking at what was in my fridge. The saltiness of the salami pairs well with sweet figs, while the goat cheese adds the creamy element. Make sure to use fresh soft goat cheese instead of the hard version. If figs aren’t in season, try dried figs!
This dough is the same recipe as the one for the bacon and egg flatbread. What’s great about this dough is the perfect ratio of crispy to chewy. Use your hands to roll out the flatbread and top with the prepared ingredients.
The recipe says to cook the fig, salami and goat cheese flatbread for 5 minutes but it can take longer depending on how strong your oven is. You can also cook the flatbread on a grill.
I was more than please with this flatbread, especially since it combines some of my favorite ingredients. Substitute the mixed greens with arugula for a little bitter element. For another variation, check out my bacon and egg version!
