A note about serious food allergies

Similar to a way-too-advanced-for-us yoga class, this show-stopping meal is all about balance. Caramelized onions add a sweet complexity that pairs beautifully with fontina's creamy texture and distinctive, grassy aroma. We may never be able to hold a tree pose, but this flatbread has us feeling at peace with the world. Namaste.
