Rustic Flatbread Pizza

1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, (200 degrees Celsius).

2) Heat 1 tbs of olive oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat, add three cloves of chopper garlic and six slices cremini mushrooms, flavor with salt and pepper. Continue to cook and stir the mushroom and garlic mixture until they have given off their juices and that has evaporated (roughly ten minutes). Remove from heat.

3) In another large skillet heat 1 tbs of olive oil over medium-high heat and add the 2-inch chunks of asparagus spears. Stir occasionally, until the asparagus turn very brown (not burnt), this takes about eight minutes. Remove asparagus from skillet.

4) Reduce the heat down to medium and cook a half pound of Applewood-smoked bacon, which has been cut into two-inch chunks, until they are crisp. Stir often as to not burn them.

5) Remove crisp bacon, place on paper towel covered plate to wick off grease.

6) Place flatbread crust onto pizza stone and cover the flat bread with three-quarters cup of marinara sauce.

7) Spread the mushrooms and garlic mixture over the top of the sauce.

8) Cover with asparagus pieces, and then arrange bacon on top of that.

9) Cover the pizza with a half-cup shredded mozzarella cheese and follow that with a half-cup of Asiago cheese.

10) Bake for twelve to fifteen minutes in the oven, or until the cheeses have melted and started to bubble.

11) Remove from oven, and enjoy.

Garlic Cheese Flatbread

1) In a small bowl, sprinkle one (.25 ounce) packet of yeast over the surface of one cup lukewarm water. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes to dissolve.

2) Mix together two cups bread flour, 1 tsp salt, and 2 tsps. white sugar in a large bowl. Pour in 2 tbs. olive oil plus the yeast mixture. Beat with a wooden spoon until the dough pulls away from the edges of the bowl. Cover and set aside until it doubles in volume.

3) Remove the dough from the bowl and knead it for a short while on a floured surface. Roll the dough so it reaches a thickness of one-quarter to one-half inch and to the size of your baking stone.

4) Spread melted butter over the dough; sprinkle it with a mixture of Parmesan, mozzarella cheese, and garlic power. Bake for twenty minutes or until golden brown and cheese is bubbled.

Do not think your stone is used only for cooking; they also make great warming trays in or outside the oven because of their proclivity to retain heat. If your stone becomes discolored over its usage, do not worry, this is natural due to its porous surface – the discoloration actually helps the performance of your stone.
