Flatbread Goat Cheese Portobello Pizza

Looking for a quick bite that is packed with flavor? Try this flatbread goat cheese portobello pizza and your taste buds will thank you!

 

Finally, it is here! A recipe for the best damn (sorry, I got excited) darn pizza I ever had. Back in September while I was in Portland, OR at a blogging convention, they served us this flatbread pizza among other goodies. One bite and I was smitten.

 

Although I have never met her before, Leslie of From Play Dates to Parties and I bonded over its delectable flavor. For a while, we were oblivious to our surroundings and focused on guessing the ingredients. We could obviously see the mushrooms and shaved parmesan and our taste buds soon discovered garlic, but what was in the “sauce”? Riccota? Sour cream? Nope. Eventually, after some trial and error, we came up with goat cheese. However, there was another distinct flavor we just couldn’t identify.

 

We ruthlessly sent a busy server to the kitchen asking the chef his secret to this amazing pizza base. You won’t believe what it is. It’s a spice I use in most of my home country’s traditional dishes. Yet I failed to recognize it. I’m ashamed of my abilities. I’m a sorry excuse for a foodie. 🙁

The secret ingredient is smoked paprika! Duh!

 

Ever since then, I’ve been making this flatbread goat cheese portobello pizza recipe at least once a week. We can’t get enough of it.

 

If you’re thinking ew, goat cheese – think again. I’ve served this pizza to people who dislike goat cheese without telling them what they’re eating (I know, I’m so mean) and they loved it. Even my granddaughters thought it was yummy, especially the two-year-old.  A small amount of goat cheese mixed with garlic and smoked paprika gives an incredible flavor. It’s simply da bomb!

 

You can use any type of flatbread for this recipe but I always use naan bread for my pizza crust. We love playing with toppings and among other favorites are pear and prosciutto pizza and the German style pizza aka Flammkuchen. Naan flatbread is a perfect size for one and cut into squares it becomes a favorite appetizer or a snack.

    A while back I made Creamy Goat Cheese Frosting for my Sweet Potato Layer Cake. I was slow getting to the goat cheese club but now I love it. I also love naan so this is perfect for me. Amazing pictures Jas!

      Same here, Sandra! I wasn’t always a fan of goat cheese. I put it in savory muffins and in a cheesecake before but never in frosting! I must look for your recipe 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

      Hi, Daphne! With goat cheese, you either love it or hate it and I’m so happy that you love it. There are not many dishes with simple ingredients that taste incredible, but this pizza is certainly one of them 😀 Let me know how you liked it!

    Hi Jas, this looks wonderful; however, my favorite part is the prep and cook time. Imagine bringing this gourmet looking dish to the table within 10 minutes. I think I would throw some flower on my face and pretend I had slaved for hours in the kitchen to my family like that old commercial. 🙂 Thank you for sharing with Blogging Grandmothers. #BloggingGrandmotherLinkParty.

      Thank you, Clearissa! The pizza is ready in no time and I usually put it in the oven before it reaches the right temperature. By the time it does, the pizza is done. Can’t get any easier than that, lol. I like your idea of throwing some flour on my face, but I don’t think my family would even notice, ha!

    These sound so easy to prepare. Have never tried naan as pizza crust before. opens all kinds of possibilities. Enjoyed the back story on how you came up with the recipe.

      Oh, once you try naan for pizza crust you won’t think of any other way. It’s a perfect size, it’s not too thick or too thin, it stores great (you can even freeze it if you don’t have an easy access), and you have your pizza in less than 10 minutes. Most naan bread brands will have pizza crust too, but I prefer the bread. 🙂
