Zucchini, Avocado & Ricotta Flatbread Recipe
I have to confess, I am a bit of a pizza-holic and this recipe is a welcome change to my usual cheesy pepperoni. Topped with chargrilled vegetables and fresh herbs, my flatbread is light, zingy and the perfect summer dish to share with family and friends.
The whole thing can be ready within 30 minutes and is guaranteed to put a smile on everyones face – so what are you waiting for? Give it a go!
- 250g Plain Flour
- 500g Greek Yoghurt
- 2 Zucchini
- 1/2 Avocado
- 5 Spring Onions
- 250g Ricotta
- Zest and Juice 1 Lemon
- Handful Rocket
- Handful Chopped Mint
1. To make the flatbread combine the flour and yoghurt in a bowl. Bring together into a dough and tip out onto a floured surface. Kneed for a minute or two until smooth. Roll the dough out to a thickness of 4/5mm (or divide the dough into two and roll out to the same thickness).
Place the dough onto a lined baking sheet and place in a preheated oven at its highest temperature (around 230 degrees). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the dough is puffed and browned and crisp underneath.
2. To make the toppings, thinly slice the zucchini on a mandolin and place in a dry, hot pan for 20 seconds to char and heat through. Place to the side. Slice the onions in half and drizzle with a little olive oil – char these in the pan too for a minute or so. Allow to cool with the zucchini.
3. Place the ricotta in a bowl with the zest of a lemon and the juice of half the lemon. Add a good pinch of salt and pepper and stir to combine. Slice an avocado in half, remove the skin and cut vertically into thin slices.
4. To assemble, spread the ricotta on top of the flatbread and scatter over the zucchini slices, spring onions and avocado. Top with a handful of rocket leaves, a sprinkling of chopped mint, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
