Flatbread with Culatello, Grana Padano Cheese, Arugula, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, and Balsamico di Modena
(Makes 10 flatbreads)
Cut flatbread dough into 10 pieces and, with a rolling pin, roll each into a very flat 11-inch circle.
If using a pizza stone, place stone in the oven on the lowest rack (so it’s closest to the heat source). Preheat the oven to 500°. When hot, lay a single disc on the hot surface. Allow to cook until you see bubbles on the surface, about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes more or until bread has puffed up.
If you don’t have a pizza oven or stone, heat a large sauté pan on high heat. Do not add any oil or fat. Lay a single disc on the hot surface. Do not touch it until you see bubbles on the surface, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes more or until bread has puffed up.
- 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 pound culatello or Prosciutto di Parma, shaved very thinly
- 1 pound grana Padano cheese or Parmigiano-Reggiano, shaved very thinly
- 1 pound arugula or rocket
- ½ cup high-quality balsamic vinegar
Drizzle olive oil on the hot flatbread. Top with culatello, then grana Padano, then the arugula, more olive oil, and then a drizzle of balsamic. Cut each flatbread into 8 pieces. Enjoy immediately.
