Heirloom cherry tomatoes, robust marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella, and bright basil, baked until irresistibly melty and crisp, make this pizza a real treat. Balsamic-dressed arugula serves as an additional topping and/or a side salad. Bonus!
Peel and halve shallot. Slice into thin strips.
Halve mozzarella balls.
Cook the Shallot
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add shallot to hot pan and stir occasionally until soft and aromatic, 2-3 minutes.
Remove pan from burner.
While shallots cook, par-bake flatbreads.
Par-Bake the Flatbreads
Place flatbreads directly on oven rack and bake until slightly crisp, 6-8 minutes.
Carefully, remove from oven and place on prepared baking sheet.
Assemble and Bake the Pizzas
Spread marinara on each flatbread. Add mozzarella halves and half the Parmesan (reserving remaining for garnish). Top with tomatoes, shallot, and a pinch of red pepper flakes (to taste) (reserve remaining for garnish).
Bake until crust is lightly browned and cheese is bubbly and melted, 5-7 minutes.
Rest pizzas 2 minutes.
While pizzas rest, make salad.
Make the Salad
Thoroughly combine balsamic vinegar and 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a mixing bowl. Add arugula and toss to coat. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
