Sweet and Savory, this mouthwatering Pumpkin Flatbread loaded with Pancetta, Kale, and Pine nuts, is exploding with flavors!
Do you know the difference between flatbread and pizza? I really had no idea. So I jumped on the google machine..and honestly, I didn’t really learn that much. Some say it’s the shape, but I think that’s false, because I’ve been known to roll my pizzas into a rectangle. Some say it’s that flatbreads don’t use a red sauce, it’s strictly and olive oil/garlic base..I could see that, but I do that on pizza too. The dough recipes are generally the same, (except this one! but we’ll get to that!)
Sooo it’s mostly semantics, because they’re pretty close to being one in the same. Regardless, they’re both carbs loaded with cheese until it’s hot and melty, and there ain’t a darn thing wrong with that. Capiche?
When I was doing a little research into the difference, I came across a recipe, that made me feel like the flatbread would actually be different. There was a special ingredient, that Ive never seen in a pizza dough. The only place I’ve seen it is naan, and well, homemade naan is perfection, so I just knew that I wanted to try this out with a flatbread dough! It’s greek yogurt! Well the original recipe I saw was for sour cream, but no, greek yogurt for the win.
And it was fantastic. So soft and chewy on the inside, with an incredibly crusty bottom and edge to the crust. It was exactly how I like it.
The toppings just meld together perfectly. Sweet pumpkin, (that didnt taste very sweet until after it came out of the oven), salt pancetta, earthy kale, and crispy pine nuts. With a little onion and garlic for good measure. This combination of toppings were meant for each other. It’s the perfect marriage of sweet, salty, crunchy, and mouthwatering!
