Recipe: Prosciutto, Pear, Goat Cheese Flatbread

This recipe is a regular item in my house. I frequently have it for lunch or dinner. It’s quick, so very easy, and full of flavor! I’ve had variations of this at so many restaurants because when I see something similar on the menu, I jump on it. But the great thing is, it’s so easy to make yourself at home!

If you haven’t had Joseph’s flatbread before, pick up a pack. They are great for not just this recipe, but for breakfast or lunch wraps too. They’re just 100 calories for a very generous serving and are so tasty. My local grocery store carries them by the sandwich bread and ready-made pizza crusts. I had only been using them for these ‘pizza’s’ and then one day it dawned on me to make a wrap with them. I typically use tortillas for my breakfast quesadillas. One day I was looking at the calories for two and cringed… then I remembered I had wraps that were basically the same size. When I compared the numbers, I swapped out my carb and made a breakfast wrap instead. It was perfect and so delicious.

Back to the recipe. Try this out and let me know what you think! When I make it, according to My Fitness Pal, it’s approx 430 calories, maybe a little more if you’re adding the walnuts. Not bad for a super filling meal that includes your salad!

Prosciutto, Pear, Goat Cheese Flatbread
Makes 1

Ingredients:
1 Joseph’s flatbread
1 pear (I use D’Anjou or Bosch), thinly sliced
2 slices prosciutto, chopped or torn into small pieces
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
1 cup mixed greens or spinach

Optional additions:
Chopped walnuts
Balsamic vinaigrette

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. I put the flatbread on a baking sheet in the oven while it is preheating. Leave it in a few minutes to heat up but don’t cook fully as it’ll have time to cook with the rest of the ingredients. If you forget this step, it’ll still turn out great… this recipe is so easy and adaptable!
