Mushroom Flatbread/ Cleo South Beach, Miami Beach

(WSVN) - We’ve got a meal the whole family won’t mind helping make. It’s pizza night! That’s what’s cooking as we grab a Bite with Belkys.

The Chef: Richard Bennett
The Restaurant: Cleo South Beach, Miami Beach
The Dish: Mushroom Flatbread

Lavash bread (or regular pizza dough as substitute)
Extra virgin olive oil
1 oz. garlic creme fraiche (available in deli sections of grocery stores)
1 tsp. grated Parmesan
¾ cup (after searing) maitake mushrooms, Shimeji mushrooms, cremini mushrooms
3-4 cloves garlic
Chili flakes
Caramelized onions
Sherry vinegar
White truffle oil

Method of Preparation:

  • Place Lavash on pizza round, puffy side up. Brush thin layer of extra virgin olive oil to the edge.
  • Flip Lavash over and spread thin layer of creme fraiche all the way to the edges.
  • Cook maitake, Shimeji and cremini mushrooms together in extra virgin olive oil. Add chopped garlic and salt towards end of cooking.
  • Cook onions with sherry vinegar until caramelized.
  • Place all toppings (mushrooms, mozzarella, onions) and spread evenly over the lavash.
  • Once flatbread is properly layered, place into oven at 400 to 500 degrees.
  • Turn once after 10 minutes to prevent overcooking on one side.
  • Cook for another 10 minutes or until crispy and bubbly, and remove from oven.

To Plate:

  • Place on wood board and garnish with truffle oil, Parmesan and chopped chives.
  • Cut into eight pieces.

1 person per flatbread.
