Allium & Chive Flatbread Recipe

I love this quick and easy recipe, delicious and surprising. The flowers taste of onion and add loads of flavour to these very simple flatbreads.


1 recipe fool-proof pizza dough link
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup of chive flowers, washed and trimmed of any debris
1 cup of allium flowers, washed and trimmed of any debris
1 bunch scallions, cut into 2-inch long pieces if you have thin, tender ones, or thinly sliced on the diagonal if you have thicker ones
extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground black pepper and salt


Once the dough is done rising, preheat your oven to 500 degrees F. Make sure your pizza stone or cookie sheet is in the oven!

Punch down your dough to let out the air, knead it lightly and divide into quarters. Roll it out to your preferred thickness and shape on some floured parchment paper so the dough is easily transferable to the oven.

Toss your scallions and flowers in some olive oil making sure they are lightly coated.

Brush a little olive oil onto the dough, then sprinkle on the red onions, then the scallions, then the chive and allium flowers. You want big bunches of flower to really deliver that concentrated flavor. Top with more olive oil (you can use what’s leftover from your scallion & flower bowls), a bit more cracked pepper, and just a touch of coarse salt.

Bake for 10-13 minutes.

Eat it hot out of the oven. Yum.
