Ingredients

BASE

SAUCE

  • a few tbsp canned crushed tomatoes
  • pesto
  • crushed garlic

TOPPINGS

  • mozzarella (cubed or grated)
  • prosciutto
  • figs (dried or fresh)
  • kalamata olives (halved or quartered)
  • yellow onion (thinly sliced)
  • crushed red pepper
  • black pepper
  • fresh rocket
  • edible flower mix (clover, jasmine, angelica, pansy, rose, climbing rose)

Strategy

Pre-heat oven to 400 F/200 C.

While oven is heating, chop all veggies.

Pre-toast tortilla in the oven so it's crispayy.

Add a couple dollops of tomato sauce, a dollop of pesto and a dollop of crushed garlic to the tortilla. Mix and spread around so it gets all the way to the edges.
Tip: You want to cover the full tortilla, but don't pile on too much sauce or it'll be soggy - yuck!

Add the cheese.

Scatter the rest of the toppings, saving the fresh rocket and edible flowers for after cooking.
Tip: The prosciutto is super salty already so I wouldn't add any salt.

Bake at 400 F/200 C for 8-10 min.

Cut into 6 pieces, turn up the smooth jazz, and let the mood settle in. 🎷🌷
