Roasted Red Pepper Balsamic Pizza {Flatout Recipe}

{This post is a part of my Flatout Recipe Collection}
Fire roasted red peppers are where it's at.  It's smoky, peppery, slightly spicy, and delicious.  I love throwing red peppers on anything, but I'd never tried them on pizza before.

I treated them like I would treat tomatoes- just stuck them on top of the cheese and baked it.  But to fancy it up, I added on a drizzle of balsamic reduction that I made while it was in the oven.  Balsamic adds a complex, slightly sweet, completely awesome flavor that elevates this flatbread from great to perfect.

I mean, it would be more perfect if I had done the balsamic drizzle nicer.  My reduction drizzling skills leave something to be desired.  Oh, well.  Next time I'll use a piping bag.  And there will be a next time.

This recipe is amazing on the Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crust in Spicy Italian, but you can use any of the flavors.  I love the slight heat and flavor the peppers in the crust bring.  It's subtle, and not overwhelming!

Red Pepper Balsamic Flatbread Pizza
serves 1

1/3 cup mozzarella shreds
2 tbsp tomato sauce
2 oz. fire roasted red peppers
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp sweetener, to taste

Preheat your oven to 350F.  Spread the tomato sauce on the flatbread.  Sprinkle on the mozzarella shreds, then slice the peppers and place them on the cheese.  Bake the flatbread in the oven for 15-18 minutes until the cheese is melted and the edges of the crust are golden.  While it's in the oven, reduce down the balsamic vinegar until it is a thick syrup texture.  Add some sweetener to taste to cut the vinegar's sourness down.  Make sure it doesn't burn!  Drizzle some of the balsamic over the baked pizza.  Slice it up and enjoy!
