Not that you need a reason to love hot crispy bread oozy with cheese but dunk Peppery Leek Flatbread into your favourite soup and you’ll want it for all your dunkable dinners. Peppery Leek Flatbread using Jungle Farm leeks is super easy using pre-made bread dough, but for those of you who have more time try the version with homemade dough. Either way you choose to go it’s a great crispy, cheesy side hot from the oven.
I like to make fresh dough using a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. It makes having fresh dough easy for recipes like this Peppery Leek Flatbread. As easy and manageable as I believe it is to make the dough from scratch I know time is a precious commodity and therefore have included a variation using pre-made frozen bread dough. Making meals day in and day out for your family can be daunting, so I would rather you have cheesy hot bread from purchased dough rather than no bread at all. The reality is that sometimes convenience trumps homemade. I’m okay with that.
This recipe using pre-made dough or homemade dough makes two flatbreads that serve 3-4 people each depending on appetites. Any leftovers can be warmed and topped with a runny egg or be a side to your salad. The overdose of freshly cracked pepper marries well with the subtle sweetness of the sautéed leeks and the cheese brings creaminess and salt, and let’s faces it, cheese makes everything better. I love this Peppery Leek Flatbread because frankly, I’m to crispy and cheesy like a dog is to a cheese wrapper. Yup, a complete lover of the crispiest, cheesiest bite and I can get my fill with Peppery Leek Flatbread. Enjoy!
