A note about serious food allergies

Summer flavors aren't just melting ice cream and perfect grill marks, fish jumping and cotton being high. And summer flavors aren't just for summer! Spring, too, is an excellent time to start in on the summer tastes; corn, bright bursts of red juicy tomatoes, and herbaceous basil pesto. Put it all on a flatbread… livin' is easy in every bite. Now, your father being rich and/or your mother being good lookin'… that we have nothing to do with. (Apologies, Mr. Gershwin.)

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using protein, pat dry and cook in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. If using whole chicken breasts, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer, pat dry, and coarsely chop. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. If using shrimp, pat dry. Cook until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using Italian sausage, remove from casing, if necessary, and break up sausage until no pink remains and sausage reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Add to flatbread as desired.
