Ingredients

  • 4 cup leeks, sliced
  • 50 gram butter
  • 1 basic dough recipe (see below)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 150 gram blue cheese
  • 1 cup walnut pieces
  • 5 or 10cm square comb honey or 2-3 tbsp liquid honey

Method

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 220°C.
  • 2
    In a saucepan, sauté the leeks in butter until softened – about 20-30 minutes
  • 3
    Split the dough into 3-4 equal pieces and roll each into 25cm long ovals. Transfer to a baking tray.
  • 4
    Spread over the leeks and sprinkle on the salt. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.
  • 5
    Add the blue cheese and walnut pieces, then cook for 2-3 minutes more, or until the cheese begins to melt.
  • 6
    Remove from oven and dab or drizzle with honey. Serve warm.

Notes

  • Makes 3-4 flatbreads. - Add softened capsicum, mushrooms or thinly sliced potato instead of leeks to these flatbreads. Or create your own combination but don’t “over-top” or the base will struggle to cook and become soggy.
