Tomato Gorgonzola Flatbread Pizza

Panera Bread Recipe

Serves 4

2 naan style flatbreads
1/4 cup prepared basil pesto, preferably refrigerated
1 large, ripe tomato, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons pine nuts
2 ounces Gorgonzola blue cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Heat a broiler or grill to medium. Broil or grill the flatbreads 4 to 5 inches from the heat until lightly toasted, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Spread the pesto over the bubbly side of the flatbreads. Scatter on the tomato, pine nuts, cheese, and pepper flakes (if using). Return the pizzas to the broiler or grill and cook (with the lid down over low heat if grilling) until the cheese begins to melt and the pizzas are crisp, 4 to 6 minutes.
