Williams-Sonoma’s breakfast flatbread with prosciutto and tomato is a simple, yet stunning, dish that features tomatoes, eggs, prosciutto, and cheese. Feel free to personalize this morning meal using ingredients you have on hand; the more fresh veggies and zesty spices you add, the better this dish will taste! If you don’t want to grill the dough rounds, you can pre-bake them, one at a time, in a preheated 500 degree oven for about 4 minutes.

Ingredients:

Flatbread Dough:

  • 1 tablespoon packed fresh yeast or 1¾ teaspoons quick-rise yeast
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1½ teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, or as needed

Toppings:

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1½ cups shredded fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 ripe heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced, drained on paper towels
  • ¾ cup ricotta cheese
  • 12 thin slices prosciutto
  • 6 fried eggs
  • Freshly ground pepper

Directions: To make flatbread dough, in the bowl of a stand mixer, combine 1 cup warm water and the yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes, then stir to dissolve. Add the sugar, bread flour, and salt. Fit the stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix on low speed until a batter forms. Add the 2 teaspoons oil. Gradually add enough of the all-purpose flour to make a soft dough that does not stick to the bowl. Remove the paddle attachment and attach the dough hook. Knead the dough on medium-low speed, adding more flour if needed, until smooth, 5 to 7 minutes. Lightly oil a large rimmed baking sheet. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and form each into a taut ball. Place on the baking sheet, smooth side up, and loosely cover with plastic wrap.

Let stand in a warm spot until the dough doubles in bulk, about 1 hour. Prepare an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper. Oil the parchment paper, then dust with flour. Lightly oil both sides of an additional 6 sheets of parchment paper. On a lightly floured work surface, shape 1 ball of dough into a flat disk. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a very thin round about 10 inches in diameter. Transfer to the baking sheet, dust with flour, and top with a sheet of oiled parchment. Repeat with the remaining dough. Have a rimmed baking sheet ready. Brush and oil the grill grates. In batches, slide the dough rounds onto the grill. Grill until brown grill marks appear on the undersides of the ground, 15 to 30 seconds. Flip the dough and grill the other sides until marked. Transfer to the baking sheet. 

Place a baking stone in the oven and preheat to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small saucepan, heat the ¼ cup oil and the garlic just until small bubbles form around the garlic. Strain the oil into a bowl and let cool. Discard the garlic. Brush each flatbread with some of the garlic oil. Place on a pizza peel or rimless baking sheet. Sprinkle with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and top with a few tomato slices. Dot with about 2 tablespoons ricotta. Slide the flatbread onto the baking stone and bake until the mozzarella is melted and bubbling, about 4 minutes. Depending on the size of the baking stone, you should be able to bake 2 flatbreads at a time. Transfer each flatbread to a plate. Drape 2 prosciutto slices over each flatbread, and top with a fried egg. Using a pizza wheel, cut into wedges. Grind pepper over each flatbread, drizzle with garlic oil, and serve.

Looking for a sweet grab-and-go breakfast? Prepare Food.com’s cinnamon flatbread, which is light, warm, and nutty. We suggest topping your flat bread with a cream cheese spread, your favorite jam, or the National Honey Board’s honey cinnamon peanut butter.

Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 2 cups spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¾ cup milk

Brushing:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 480 degrees Fahrenheit, and place a baking tray inside. Mix all dry ingredients for the dough in a bowl and add the milk. Mix with slightly floured hands until dough is formed. Knead dough for 5 minutes with slightly floured hands. Let rest dough for about 10 minutes. On a slightly floured working platform roll out the dough with a rolling pin. It should be thin. Place the dough on baking paper.

Mix egg yolk and milk. Brush the dough with this mixture. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle the dough with this mixture. Put dough on the baking tray in the oven and bake for about 5 to 10 minutes. The bread should be done within 5 minutes and will be soft. For crispier flatbread, let it bake for up to 10 minutes. During baking, the bread will develop several bubbles. Take the cinnamon flat bread out of the oven and let cool on a cooling rack. Cut into pieces and serve.
