Strapped for time and need an easy dinner recipe? Try this simple to make dinner idea: Prosciutto, Fig & Arugula flatbread.
I love to cook, and some nights I get super creative. But there are other nights where I’m tired and don’t feel like making an elaborate meal. That’s why I always keep a roll of store-brought classic pizza crust in my fridge.
I think we can all agree we love a tasty and easy dinner idea that can be thrown together and enjoyed by all. That’s why I love making simple flatbreads for dinner. Dress them up with tasty, seasonal ingredients, different proteins, and more. They’re so easy to make, too.
There’s something so tasty about a sweet and salty combination. Prosciutto is one of my favorite indulgences. It’s definitely salty, but it’s so good! I personally like it when it’s fresh, so I place it on top the flatbread AFTER it comes out of the oven.
Have you tried a Mission fig? They remind me of summers in California. We used to grab them at the farmers market on vacation and cooked with them in a variety of ways, on flatbreads or pizzas and in salads, too. Prosciutto and fresh Mission figs on top of a flatbread pizza, plus a little a little Boursin cheese, is a delicious and easy meal idea.
