Roasted Garlic and Mushroom Flatbread

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! πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ™‚


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 425Β° 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 425Β° until the cheese has melted. Garnish with the basil chiffonade and serve warm.

Golden brown and ready to go.

Getting saucy and cheesy!

These slices are so thin you can have 10 of them at once.

  1. 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! πŸ˜€

  2. 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 πŸ™‚

    • 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! πŸ™‚

  3. 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 πŸ™‚

  4. 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. πŸ™‚

    • 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! πŸ™‚

  5. Yay, so good to have you back Patty! Have been missing your gorgeous pics and all the deiciousness you cook up πŸ™‚ Just look at that flatbread, Stunning! Love the chiffonade of basil πŸ™‚

  6. 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!!

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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!!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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. πŸ˜€

  13. 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! πŸ™‚

  14. What a beautiful looking flatbread that is, Patty. Just the right flavors. And we love your companion too! πŸ˜€ How I wish we lived closer. We would have enrolled for all your photography classes!

  15. 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!

Please tell me what you think!
