Flatbreads have great appeal because they are not laden with too much cheese, so you don’t feel weighted down. This thin, crispy dough sports less topping than a pizza. Dress up flatbread with Hawaiian favorites, such as diced pineapple, ham and mushrooms. Or, select various toppings to surprise and delight your family. Look for flatbread in the deli department of your supermarket.
- 1 7?×7? flatbread square or pita disc
- 1 to 2 teaspoons tomato paste
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- Pinch of black pepper
- 1 small onion, cut into thin strips
- 1/2 small bell pepper, sliced
- 2 or 3 button mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 cup diced ham, or 1 to 2 slices ham, chopped
- 1/2 cup (4 ounces) diced pineapple
- 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Preheat convection oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread one side of bread with tomato paste. Arrange garlic, pepper, onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, ham and pineapple on top, finishing with cheese and dried oregano. Place on high rack and convection cook 8 to 10 minutes on high (100%).
