Monday’s always seem like the longest day of the week. I guess it is because it’s the first day back to the grind after two days of play. It’s practically dark outside when David and I get home from work these days. So I have really been enjoying quick and simple meals.

I do not buy ricotta cheese anymore and I make sure that when I make it fresh it gets used up. I had some leftover homemade ricotta in the fridge from another recipe along with some Gruyère cheese, fresh thyme, and some shallots in the pantry. David and I love naan bread and I always enjoy cheesy mushrooms, so I decided to make David and I a couple of pizzas for supper for Meatless Monday.

Fresh and creamy homemade ricotta is spread onto naan bread with flavorful sauteed portobello mushrooms, sweet shallots, garlic, and thyme. The flatbread pizzas are topped with Gruyère cheese which provides a boost of layered flavor.

Here’s how I made this veggie-lovers flatbread:

HOW TO MAKE MUSHROOM FLATBREAD PIZZAS

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat the oil and melt the butter in a large skillet, over medium-high heat. When the butter has melted and starts to foam, add the shallots and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook the shallots until they begin to brown, about 3 minutes.

Add the mushrooms and thyme, cook stirring occasionally until the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms are caramelized; about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place the flatbreads onto a large baking sheet. Spread 2 tablespoons of the ricotta cheese onto each flatbread.

(The back of a spoon works best for spreading out the cheese.)

Add half of the mushroom mixture to each of the flatbreads. Top each flatbread with ½ cup Gruyère cheese.
