From the Test Kitchen

Three kinds of cheeses give this unique, seasonal flatbread layers of deliciously rich flavor—perfectly matched by toppings of crisp pear and sautéed kale and shallot. Creamy mustard sauce combined with a touch of olive oil is drizzled over it all just before serving for bright, tangy contrast of flavor in every bite.

Kale & Pear Flatbread with Ricotta, Goat & Fontina Cheeses
Title
  • 1 lb Pizza Dough
  • 1 bunch Kale
  • 1 Pear
  • 2 Tbsps Goat Cheese
  • ½ cup Part-Skim Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 Shallot
  • 2 oz Shredded Fontina Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Creamy Mustard Sauce
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the dough from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then thinly slice the leaves. Halve, core, and thinly slice the pear. In a bowl, whisk together the ricotta, goat cheese, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. 

Cook the kale:
2 Cook the kale:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sliced kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Assemble & bake the flatbread:
3 Assemble & bake the flatbread:

Lightly oil a sheet pan. Using your hands, gently stretch the dough to about 1/4-inch thickness. Carefully center the dough on the sheet pan. Shape towards the edges of the pan, maintaining an even thickness (if the dough is resistant, let rest 5 minutes). Leaving a 1-inch border around the edges, spread the ricotta-goat cheese mixture onto the prepared dough. Evenly top with the cooked kale, sliced pear, and fontina. Season with salt and pepper. Bake the flatbread 17 to 19 minutes, or until the fontina is melted and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes.
