Prosciutto, Pancetta and Goat Cheese Flatbread.

So there are those moments when you make something and you love it so much...that you falter on whether or not you want to actually share it with others. 
Oh... maybe that's just me. oops.


This flatbread pizza was one of those instances. I only got one slice the last time and I am still sad about it. I should probably get over it, but for the next few weeks I am gluten free and all I can think about is wanting more of this.

I came up with this recipe from a few other creations combined. I had done a baked brie w/the pancetta and prosciutto and a stuffed crescent rolls with the brie and the same mixture. and this was a stumble upon of those dishes.

I am not the biggest fan of brie...but I could seriously eat goat cheese by the pound. Oh. muy. goodness. and so when I was coming up with and finalizing this recipe, I decided to forgo the brie for goat cheese. and maybe best decision ever. no big deal.

I came up with this idea for a cooking contest...and it wasn't till after I submitted it that I realized the two of the winners from the previous three years had a pizza with prosciutto...and I think that probably hurt me.

Anyways. if you like bacon or ham and you like Italian. and bourbon...then this is for you;) if not...I am sorry. and I am confused;)

Ingredients
1 pizza dough
1/4 lb thinly cut prosciutto(sliced into small pieces)
1/4 lb thinly pancetta(sliced into small pieces)
1 small log of goat cheese
2 tbsp bourbon(I used Makers Mark)
1 tbsp apricot jam
1 tbsp EVOO

Directions Preheat oven to 375'
roll out pizza dough on pizza stone/cookie sheet. if you like a crispier crust, before adding any ingredients, prebake for about 8 minutes.

In a saute pan, heat the pancetta, prosciutto and apricot jam together. Using a spoon to stir and coat all the pieces. Add in the bourbon and cook till slightly crispy.
Yeah...that's right, I worked bourbon onto my pizza. That's called winning.

Take the pre baked crust out and brush the dough with olive oil. Using your hands, scatter the pancetta and prosciutto mix over the crust and add the crumbled goat cheese. If you have any liquid left over in the saute pan, drizzle over the pizza.

Place bake in oven and bake for another 12-15 minutes. 

Then before you serve it...eat a big ole slice and don't tell anyone. I won't tell.

and if you want to email or text or do anything of the like...You should check auto correct before you inadvertently call your pizza a street girl.

It does...kinda have a ring to it. Right?
