Ingredients Needed for Cheese and Kale Flatbread

12 olives
1 tablespoon dried yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons of milk

1 rosemary sprig
½ cup heavy cream
¼ cup mozzarella, shredded
¼ cup cheddar, shredded
3 ounces of kale
chili flakes

How to Cook Cheese and Kale Flatbread

  1. Thinly slice the olives.
  2. Add the sugar and yeast in a small bowl. Add milk and gently mix to dissolve the yeast.
  3. Add the flour into your food processor.
  4. Add the wet yeast and turn on the mixer.
  5. Slowly pour the flour and olive oil while mixing.
  6. Mix until the ingredients combine into a smooth, sticky dough.
  7. Add the sliced olives and mix them into the dough.
  8. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  9. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and melt it. Add the rosemary sprig and leave it in the pan for 1 minute.
  10. Take it out and pour the heavy cream. Reduce the heat and add the mozzarella and Cheddar. Stir until the mixture is smooth and thick, and bring it to a fondue-like consistency. Season with salt and let it cool.
  11. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.
  12. Dust your working space with flour.
  13. Level the dough with a rolling pin, making it as thin as you like. We prefer it around 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) thick.
  14. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the dough on top. Evenly spread the cheese mixture over the dough.
  15. Top it with kale and chili flakes.
  16. Bake it for 25 minutes!
