The inspiration for this stunning flatbread pizza came from a foodie we met at a Foodbuzz event at Beso Restaurant last September. We recently had the opportunity to meet with her again a few weeks ago for dinner at Street Restaurant in LA. Nancy is a Food Stylist To the Stars – which means if a show needs someone to design a set that includes food or eating, she’s the one they’ll call. She’s worked on a ton of TV shows & film, including the more recent Melrose Place and Prison Break. Her job is definitely interesting and she absolutely loves it.
Anyway, before we headed to dinner at Street, Nancy asked us to come over to her house for cocktails. We were surprised she also went out of her way to make us a flatbread pizza with prosciutto and gouda cheese. It was simply amazing! I honestly wanted to eat the entire pizza, but I had to resist. The flavors she used paired so well together – prosciutto, italian cheese, caramelized onions, spring mix lettuce, and balsamic glaze. So of course, I had to call Nancy a week later to ask her for all the ingredients she used so that we can make our own at home! Without a formal recipe, we did our best with what we had and still managed to replicate a delicious flatbread pizza! Thanks, Nancy!
