Italian flatbread with pear, walnut and gorgonzola

Italian flatbread with pear, walnut and gorgonzola

By Hannah Guinness, olivemagazine

The combination of gorgonzola, pears and walnuts is usually found in a salad but works brilliantly on this molten cheesy bread. It’s great hot but equally good for lunchboxes the day after

Total Time

45 minutes + proving

Yield

serves 8-10

Ingredients

  • red-skinned pears 2, cored and cut into thin wedges
  • walnuts 15, roughly broken
  • gorgonzola dolce 150g without rind, diced
  • fig jam or chutney to serve (optional)

FLATBREAD

  • strong bread flour 300g, plus extra for dusting
  • caster sugar 1 tsp
  • sea salt flakes 1 tsp
  • fast-action dried yeast 7g sachet
  • natural yogurt 1 tbsp
  • olive oil

Method

Step 1

To make the flatbread, combine the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix together the yogurt, 1 tbsp olive oil and 175ml warm water, then gradually mix into the flour to form a soft dough. Tip onto a lightly floured worksurface and knead for 8-10 minutes until smooth and springy (try not to add too much extra flour when kneading). Put the dough in a bowl, cover and leave it to rise for 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.

Step 2

Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 6. Tip the dough out on to a worksurface, press and roll out to a large rectangle (roughly 25cm x 35cm), then put on a large baking sheet. Brush all over with olive oil then push in the pears and walnut halves all over. Dot with the gorgonzola and bake for 15-20 minutes until puffed and golden. Drizzle with a little more oil, then serve with fig jam or chutney, if you like.
