Roasted Tomato and Ricotta Flatbread

Recipe written by The Chef Next Door


Ingredients:

1/2 cup yellow grape tomatoes

1 whole garlic clove, peeled 

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup Ricotta cheese

Dash of red pepper flakes

3 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves picked 

1 flatbread, either store bought or homemade

Salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the tomatoes and garlic on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and gently toss to combine. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes.


In a small bowl mix the Ricotta with the red pepper flakes, rosemary leaves and a pinch of salt and pepper. Take the roasted garlic clove and smash it with the back of a knife until it becomes almost a paste. Add the smashed garlic to the Ricotta mixture and blend well.


Spread the Ricotta mix evenly over the top of the flatbread, then add the roasted tomatoes. Place the flatbread directly on the top rack of the oven and cook for 10 minutes, until the bottom is crispy and the toppings are warmed through. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into quarters.


Bon Appetit!
