  • 8ozbrussels sprouts,thinly-sliced with ends trimmed and discarded
  • 1small red onion,peeled and thinly sliced

  • 2ozcrumbled goat cheese,blue cheese or feta cheese
  • balsamic glaze,store-bought or homemade*


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Fry bacon in a large saute pan over medium-high heat until cooked. Transfer bacon to a separate plate with a slotted spoon, and set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, keep about 1 tablespoon of the remaining bacon grease in the sauté pan; discard the extra if there’s too much grease in there. Stir in the Brussels sprouts, red onion, and sliced garlic then saute for about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture is softened and the garlic is fragrant. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  4. Place the two pieces of flatbread on a large baking sheet, and brush the tops of each with olive oil. Sprinkle each piece of flatbread evenly with about ⅓ cup of Mozzarella cheese, leaving a ½-inch border around the edges of the flatbread. Then divide the Brussels mixture, bacon, and crumbled cheese evenly between the 2 pieces of flatbread, and spread them out evenly. Sprinkle with the remaining Mozzarella cheese.

  5. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the Mozzarella has melted and the crusts are slightly golden.

  6. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the balsamic glaze.  Serve immediately.
