A note about serious food allergies

There are only so many references to Shakespeare, Romans, and Rubicons your recipe description writer can make; we're history lovers, not history majors! But most of all we're food lovers and the taste of this flatbread has us wanting our friends and countrymen to lend us their taste buds so we can spread the love of these flavors. From the umami-bomb mushroom sauce to two forms of Parmesan, this flatbread's got a serious case of veni, vidi, vici going on. (Turns out, we had a lot more references to use!) Tip: if you're looking for the right texture for the sauce, dip a spoon in and see how well it sticks to the back. If it coats, you're good to go.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • Meat lovers! If adding protein, cook in large non-stick pan before vegetables in Step 3. Transfer to a plate, then add to flatbreads in Step 5 or serve on the side. If using chicken, pat dry and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally with 2 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Cut into 1" pieces if added to flatbread. If using Italian sausage, remove from casing. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Break into small pieces with a spoon until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. If using ground turkey, combine with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook over medium-high heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. Break into small pieces with a spoon until no pink remains, 7-9 minutes.

  1. 1

    Bake the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads directly on oven rack and bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.

    While flatbreads bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Place porcini mushrooms in a heat-safe mixing bowl. Once water in small pot is boiling, carefully pour over mushrooms. Set aside at least 10 minutes. Wipe pot dry and reserve.

    While mushrooms soak, mince garlic.

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Stem and coarsely chop kale.

    After ten minutes, carefully remove mushrooms from bowl (discard water). Mince half the mushrooms. Leave remaining mushrooms whole, keeping chopped and whole mushrooms separate.

  3. 3

    Cook the Kale Mixture

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add onion to hot pan and stir occasionally until softened, 3-4 minutes.

    Add kale and stir until starting to wilt, 1-2 minutes.

    Add 2 Tbsp. water, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally until kale is tender, 5-7 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in seasoning blend, red pepper flakes (to taste), and a pinch of salt.

  4. 4

    Make the Porcini Cheese Sauce

    Return pot used to boil water to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add garlic to hot pot and stir constantly until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.

    Add whole porcini mushrooms and stir constantly, 30 seconds.

    Add cream and bring to a boil. Once boiling, stirring constantly until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Carefully remove whole porcini mushrooms (use a slotted spoon) and discard. Stir in chopped porcini mushrooms, grated Parmesan, and a pinch of pepper.

    Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir constantly until cheese melts and sauce thickens, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
