After a two month recipe hiatus, I have come back with two recipes in one week! And just in time for Fiesta Friday! It has been far too long. Hopefully Angie still remembers who I am! 😉
Here is the follow up to my Roasted Red Pepper Pesto recipe. I made a roasted garlic and mushroom flatbread with the pesto as the base sauce. Delish! I gobbled up more than my fair share, that’s for sure. 🙂
Roasted Garlic and Mushroom Flatbread
- 1 flatbread
- 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- olive oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2″ inch cubes, amount depends on how cheesy you want your flatbread
- fresh basil chiffonade
- roasted red pepper pesto, recipe here
Toss mushrooms with garlic, salt, and pepper and spread on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and roast at 425° until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
As the mushrooms cool, quickly toast the flatbread on both sides in the oven, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Place the flatbread on a baking sheet and spread on a thin layer of the roasted red pepper pesto. Next, scatter the roasted garlic and mushrooms on top and dot with fresh mozzarella cubes. Bake at 425° until the cheese has melted. Garnish with the basil chiffonade and serve warm.
yum yum yum, it looks so nice! I could eat so many of those. 🙂
Thanks, Weebirdie! I sure ate plenty! 😀
Looks so good ❤
Thanks, Charanya! 😀
Hey Patty! So happy to see you back in the recipe arena!! I just love what you’ve done with your amazing pesto. This is a wonderful flat bread that I would eat in a heartbeat! Loving your photos so much! Happy Fiesta Friday! 😀
Thanks, Julianna! It’s good to be back! Happy Fiesta Friday to you as well, my friend! 😀
So delicious looking. No wonder you ate it yourself 😉 We have some flatbread this could be really, really good with. Happy Fiesta Friday.
Yes…I almost didn’t tell my boyfriend what I did. But alas, I confessed. He didn’t mind because I made an extra one just for him. 😉
I was totally impressed with your roasted red pepper pesto exactly as it was Patty, but here it’s just got kicked up a notch and transformed into the most delicious flatbread! Right now I’m wishing that Fiesta Friday was for real and that we actually got to taste all we see in the photos! Welcome back to FF and have a fun time mixing with the crowd! Cheers, Margot 🙂
We should plan a real FF one day. Really! I have already met a few of our blogger friends and am on my way to meet a couple more on the east coast next week. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all meet one day?? Now that would be one fine party!
Absolutely! That would be so fantastic Patty! 🙂
I am crazy about roasted veggies and this looks so yum on flat bread. …slurp .
Yes, roasted veggies are so good! Any grilled veggies would work well with this flatbread. 🙂
I knew that you were going to put that red pepper pesto to good use!! YUM! Looks amazing 🙂
Thanks, Josette! I had to be a bit more creative than just eating it with a spoon. 😉
Welcome back Patty at the FF 🙂 Your Roasted Garlic and Mushroom Flat bread looks sublime and your companion is adorable 🙂
Thanks, Linda! It has been far too long since my last FF. 🙂
Great idea to use your red pesto on the flatbread – I would enjoy it without all of the mushrooms 🙂 I am going to make that pesto recipe of yours as it is such a good base for many recipes!
You can add any veggies you prefer, Judi! I know caramelized onions would be fantastic on this. Or grilled squash. Do let me know if you try the pesto! 🙂
I have only one word for this – yum! Perfect for a summers evening. Emma.
Thanks, Emma. I was hooked after the first bite. 🙂
I love your logic here! I was thinking the same. Totally can eat 10 pieces…. Looooving that gorgeous basil on top!
10, 20, who’s counting?? Not I! 😉
Happy to see you and your companion back at Fiesta Friday. This looks really delicious – it was worth the wait!
Aww, that’s so sweet of you to say, Hilda! It’s good to be back!
Wow! That is such a delicious looking flat bread. Roasting the mushrooms is an amazing idea.
And hugs to Bailey. Look at those eyes 🙂
He gets away with so many things because of those eyes… 😉
You’re on a roll Patty, fantastic recipe love that flatbread, the mushrooms and garlic, YUM. Bailey is so cute, give him a big kiss and hug from Izzy and Nando and me.
Bailey says thank you and sends double hugs and kisses back to Izzy and Nando! 🙂
Oh my! I can finish all of it in one go :). Lovely flatbread Patty and mushrooms and garlic I love !
Okay, one for each of us! Let’s see who finishes first?? 😉
I think these would be absolutely fantastic to get people’s appetites going at the beginning of a busy dinner party or drinks, cut up into small slices. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Yes, I agree, Mandi! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! 🙂
I’m glad to find you here with another recipe, I’m also glad because you’re here with pizza! It looks delicious!
Haha, yes, bearers of pizza are usually greeted with more enthusiasm, yes? 😉
Patty, this looks so yummy, making me very hungry 🙂 And Bailey is so photogenic, I’m getting jealous!
Haha, Bailey looks better in his photos than in real life. Shhh! Don’t tell him I told you! 😉
Funny! I won’t say a word 🙂
This looks so good! It would be great for guests on a casual Saturday night I am thinking? I also have a little maltese companion that is always cheering me on and hoping for a treat or two!
Oh, I’m heading over to your blog now, Julie! I will have to search for pictures of your fur baby! 🙂
Yup, I can definitely eat this all on my own! There won’t be any left for Jesse after I get to this. Looks absolutely scrumptious, Patty. I’m inviting myself over next time we’re in Sac. Are you up for a hike in the fall with us? I have friends and family I need to go see in the fall. Then, you can make this flatbread for me. (Please?!) Plus, I want to meet Bailey. 🙂
Ngan, you have an open invite to my home any time!! You should visit every time you’re up in Sac! Let me know when in the fall. If I can’t join you for a hike we’ll at least have breakfast/lunch/dinner, or all of the above if you’d like! I will make you as many flatbreads as you want. And Jesse, too, of course! Bailey will be excited to meet you. But we have to be strategic about it. He sort of hates visitors. So we’ll have to let you meet him at the mailbox first or something. He went crazy on Thuy when she was here. I even took him to the airport to pick her up, yet he flipped out on her once we got to our driveway. Silly dog. Anyway, I can’t wait to see you again! 🙂
Yay, so good to have you back Patty! Have been missing your gorgeous pics and all the deiciousness you cook up 🙂 Just look at that flatbread, Stunning! Love the chiffonade of basil 🙂
Thanks, Naina. The basil adds a lovely fresh touch. 🙂
Patty, so good to have you back – I did wonder if I had been missing your posts. You are such an inspiration – I mean, just look at how stunning your flatbread looks – and the flavours sound so delicious – I could devour the whole lot myself! Thanks for the de rigueur shot of Bailey!!
Posts don’t seem complete without a shot of Bailey. I’m glad you enjoy them as much as I do. ❤
Patty, delicious food from your lens looks extra special:-) love your companion<3
Thanks so much, Vidya! 🙂
Pizza is my new obsession lately, I’m eating leftover pizza right now from last night, and the night before that I had it too! I can’t seem to get enough so it looks like I’ll have to try this next, amazing pictures as always!!! Happy Fiesta Fridaayyyy!
Yes, I love pizza! I think I may have some tonight now that you mention it… 😉
This pizza looks so good, Patty, and I always love your photos of sweet Bailey! 🙂
He is not that sweet, Nancy. He does naughty things every day! 😉
Oh Patty! What a gorgeous flat bread. I love a lot of mushrooms too and I have to say I have never roasted mushroom before. What a grand idea. Your basil is perfectly placed. Your photographs are always so beautiful. I’m happy to see you posting food again!
Thanks, Seana! I love mushrooms! Except shiitake mushrooms. It’s the strangest thing. Can’t eat those to save my life. 😀
Me too Patty! Well, actually I got sick on them years ago, so I can eat them to save my life!
Oh that’s never a fun experience!!
Mushroom flat bread looks so glad! I love roasted mushrooms! Yummy!
Thanks, Olga! 🙂
Patty, I love mushrooms, garlic! This looks simple and delicious! And I love your dog! Happy FF!
Hi Lisa! Thanks so much! Happy FF to you as well! 🙂
[…] Patty […]
YUM! And here’s no way we could forget you Patty! 🙂
Aww, thanks, Nell!! 🙂
Excellent shots! The pizza was so good!
Patty! So good to see you at FF! And unlike your host, you’ve arrived on time! (What can I say, that Dame Edna hairdo took longer than I expected….)
Love love this flatbread, and I can easily eat a few more slices – after all mushrooms are good for you right?
Enjoy this week’s party!!
Thanks, Saucy!! I’m diggin’ that ‘do of yours! 🙂
Wow! this looks good enough to eat all by myself, I don’t think I would share this if it were mine :). Beautiful presentation and photos too.
No need for sharing, Loretta. I sure didn’t! 😉
Looks fantastic Patty!!! I would have the whole tray too as I adore mushrooms!!! Yum!! 😊 xx
Thanks, Farianti! Come visit and I’ll make you TWO trays!! 😀
Ooooh now we’re talking!!!😋
Ooh that looks soo good. You can eat these beauties without feeling guilty. Good one. Your dog looks super cute Patty! 🙂
Thanks, Sadia! Yes, that’s what I told myself…this is healthy…so I should eat more of it if I want to be extra healthy! 😉
That looks mouthwateringly good – beautiful photography! I love roasted mushrooms and always include them when we have pizza. I’ve recently experimented with some melting dairy-free cheese on pizza. But mostly I go for a full-of-flavour tomato sauce, yummy toppings and plenty of basil (of course!) or homemade pesto.
Have a great weekend.
My mom doesn’t eat cheese so she ordered all of her pizzas cheese-free during her visit to Italy! I hope you have a fantastic week! 🙂
Love flatbread! This looks so tasty Patty! Love the pic of Bailey!
Thanks, Arlene! 😉
Dang, girl. I must admit I felt relieved when I finally read through the recipe and realized that you did not make the flatbread . . . I mean if you did, it would be perfectly flat and rectangular because of your condition (haha . . . you know, the dreaded but super useful OCD). Thanks for getting out that pesto again, too. It’s funny now that I have a camera I see so much more in your photography . . . I always knew it was awesome but now I notice what is actually awesome about it. I’d like half a flatbread please, thanks!
You know what’s funny? I can’t make pretty baked goods! My scones and English muffins always look so…homemade…for lack of a better word! I’m glad you’re having so much fun with your camera. 😀
wow, what a wonderfull crispy flatbread!!!
it’s a super duper garlicky fragrance roasted button mushrooms, i think i’m gonna topped my pizza with it,
thx for such an inspiring post…
Thanks for the kind words, Dedy. I love my food super duper garlicky! 🙂
I love your food and you take great pictures! Reading this really makes me hungry 🙂 Brilliant!
Lovely recipe Patty! You have a great combination of flavors going on here with the mushrooms, garlic and basil! Love your red pepper pesto! I had missed it before so glad I saw it now. That sounds just too yummy and I will have to make that soon! 🙂
Thanks, Indu. This is one of my favorite snacks!
I can imagine why! 🙂
What a beautiful looking flatbread that is, Patty. Just the right flavors. And we love your companion too! 😀 How I wish we lived closer. We would have enrolled for all your photography classes!
I wish you two lived closer as well! Across the street would be great! 😀
Love the mushroom flatbread! I like the fact that the bread is so thin that you are not eating too much of the bread and have to eat more veggies! Mushrooms are always a winner in my home!
Yes, especially when the veggies are so tasty! I don’t mind eating less bread at all! 🙂
Love this beautiful flatbread. And Bailey – I have to say – so very cute.
I find it hard to resist Bailey. 😀
I could see why you can eat this alone, Patty. Did you give that cute little one a share? 😀 Glad to see you here.
I think I gave me him a small piece of plain flatbread. That’s about it! Everything else has garlic and I don’t want to poison the little guy! 😉
Wow, this looks divine! Love mushroom and garlic!
Me too, Jess!
I love this! Those mushrooms look wonderful, I bet this would be a hit at parties!
Thanks, Mary! It would be hard to share at parties, I think… 😉
Because of all those beautiful photos flat-bread looks awesome and so tasty! 😀
This looks delicious!
It’s one of my favorites, and now you’ve reminded me to make it again! 😀
