Bacon Flatbread

Chad and I were watching the Food Network when we saw a bacon flatbread and immediately thought it sounded like the best idea since…bacon. So I promptly sent him to the store and got working on the bread and compote.

Flatbread recipe adapted from Smittenkitchen rosemary flatbread recipe and inspired by the House Smoked Bacon Flatbread at Nopa Restaurant (560 Divisadero St, San Francisco, CA 94117, 415-864-8643) as featured on The Best Thing I Ever Ate on Foodnetwork

8 strips of thick-cut pepper bacon

Garlic and Shallot Compote
8 Strips of thick, pepper bacon
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 medium shallot, minced
2 Tbsp butter
big pinch of salt
big heaping Tbsp brown sugar
big glug white wine
2/3 tsp finely chopped rosemary

Flatbread
1 3/4 C AP flour
1 Tbsp chopped rosemary
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 C water
1/3 C olive oil

Crema
2 Tbsp heavy cream
1/2 tsp garlic powder

sprinkle of parmesan cheese

Melt butter in a small saucepan and add garlic and the shallot. Add a pinch of salt, a big tablespoon of brown sugar, a glug of white wine, and the chopped rosemary. Stir well and let bubble over medium heat. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place a rack on a baking sheet and lay the bacon strips on it. Cook 15 minutes before cutting into pieces. Really, really, really try not to eat it all up while you…

Turn the oven up to 450°F. Stir the flour, chopped rosemary, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Make a small well in the center and add water and olive oil. Stir together until the dough combines. Knead well on a floured surface. Line a baking sheet with parchment and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle salt on the surface before spreading out the flatbread dough. Use a spoon to spread the garlic compote over the dough, covering evenly. Place the bacon pieces over the dough and pop in the oven for 10 minutes or until crispy. When flatbread is removed from the oven, immediately drizzle with the garlic crema and top with parmesan cheese. Slice into pieces and eat with anything. This flatbread is good with soup, morning, salad, or more bacon flatbread.
