Squash and Onion Flatbread

When I was choosing the menu for an event entitled "Style Wednesday" for @twentytwohome I wanted something that did not need to stay hot throughout the event.  Flatbread is just the ticket if you want a no-nonsense yummy staple for your guests.  Since our event was focused on fresh summer vegetables, I chose to try a squash and onion flatbread.  Simple yet tasteful.  

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Flatbread:

1/3 cup of warm water at least 105 to 115 degrees F

3 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil, plus more for drizzling

1/2 teaspoons of active dry yeast

1/8 teaspoons of sugar

1 cup of bread flour

1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt

In a bowl stir together the water, 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil, the yeast and the sugar.  Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in flour and salt.  Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface.  Knead 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth.  In a glass bowl, drizzle olive oil and grease surface of dough.  cover and let it rise at room temperature until it doubles in size.   Flour your surface and cut dough in half.  Cover again and let it rest another 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Roasted Vegetables:

8 ounces of assorted baby summer squash with flowers attached, trimmed and havled

6 red or green spring onions, trimmed and quartered

8 ounces of Burrata or fresh mozzarella cheese drained and chopped into small squares

1/4 cup edible flowers

Sea Salt 

In a jelly roll pan, place cut up squash and onions, season with 1 tablespoon of sea salt and roast until crisp and tender about 7 minutes.

Roll or stretch dough to a 10 x 7 inch oval figure.  Add vegetables a drizzle with remaining olive oil and salt.  Bake about 5 minutes or until brown.  Add flowers when ready to serve.
