This savory flatbread is made with creamy Brie cheese, sliced apples, fresh sage and drizzled honey on your favorite pizza dough.
This Summer our youngest daughter was working at a hospital internship in NYC; which meant long12 hour days. Between the time spent commuting into the city and taking a Summer college course, that left little time for fun.
Thankfully it was a paid internship so she could save some money to get her through her Junior year at college, but the commuting costs for the bus and subway chipped away at her savings a little more than she anticipated.
So she cut corners where she could and brought her breakfast and lunch everyday. One of her favorite things to eat for lunch is a turkey and Brie sandwich. Simple, easy and delicious.
That meant we usually had some extra cheese laying around that I normally wouldn't purchase unless I needed to use it in a recipe.
Being that Friday is our usual pizza night, I wanted to come up with a new recipe for the upcoming Fall season. This flatbread with creamy Brie cheese, sweet apples and earthy sage was AMAZING!
It can be served for dinner or cut into smaller pieces to serve as an appetizer. Perfect for dinner or game day snacking!
Seasoning a pizza stone is when the oils from the food burn off and leave behind a black, nonstick surface. If the pizza stone is new, rub it with some oil; then heat the stone a few times to get the desired result.
New stones or pans that have not been seasoned properly will cause the food to stick. I've mentioned before that I rotate my sheet pans.
For this recipe you'll need the following ingredients:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pizza Dough: You can use homemade dough, store bought or one purchased from your local pizzeria. Make sure the dough is at room temperature before making this recipe so it's easier to stretch out.
Thinly Sliced Apples: The best apples to use in this recipe are ones that are soft like McIntosh or Honeycrisp. Peel the skins, remove the seeds; then cut into thin slices.
Brie Cheese: I removed the white rind from the cheese before slicing, but you can certainly leave it on.
Fresh Chopped Sage
How do you make Brie and Apple Flatbread?
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and move the rack to the middle of the oven. Generously add the oil to the pan or stone and stretch out the dough.
It doesn't have to be perfectly round or rectangular, but should be the same thickness so it cooks evenly. Not only does the oil help the dough not stick to the pan, it creates a crispy crust.
Next, add the Brie slices to the dough leaving a ½-inch border; then top with the sliced apples and chopped sage. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the dough is brown on the bottom and edges and the cheese has melted.
Remove from the oven, drizzle honey on top, place on a cutting board; then cut into 10 pieces with a pizza cutter or large knife.
