Blue cheese, nectarine and walnuts flatbread?
Okay, at first glace, this combo sounds odd. But hear me out…fruit. And cheese. Seriously. Fruit and cheese. How wrong can that be?
Believe me, this is so SO right. Sweet nectarines (that are in season and gorgeous right now), creamy and salty blue cheese and crunchy walnuts are perfect together. Melted atop a crispy outside/chewy inside crust and served with a nice crisp glass of white wine, this screams PATIO FOOD! You can serve this dish as an entree, topped with some arugula lightly dressed with lemon juice and olive oil (as pictured). Or, you can easily slice this up in several portions and serve it as an appetizer.
The crust? It’s my go to pizza crust. You only need to use half of the dough you’ll make for this recipe – either wrap up the extra and save it in the fridge for a quick pizza in a couple of days. Just pull it out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature for about twenty minutes before attempting to stretch the dough.
Feel free to experiment with this recipe! You can swap goat cheese for the blue cheese, pears for the nectarines. Yum!
