Caramelized Onion & Pear Flatbread

Caramelized Onion & Pear Flatbread



  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour 
  • 1 tbsp baking powder 
  • ¼ tsp salt 
  • ¾ cup plain yogurt 
  • Vegetable oil, for cooking 


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup Pear Walnut Chutney
  • 1 ripe pear, sliced
  • ½ cup shaved parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup arugula
  • Balsamic glaze


  1. Briefly mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Make a well in the center and add the yogurt into the well. Mix with a spatula or clean hands until a dough is formed. 
  3. Flip the dough out onto a clean surface. Knead for a minute or two until the dough ball is smooth. 
  4. Cut the dough into 3 equal pieces. Lightly flour your surface and then use a rolling pin to flatten each ball into an oblong shape that is about ¼” thick. 
  5. Heat about 2 tsp of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot,  fry the shaped dough one at a time. Cook 1-2 minutes per side, or until golden brown.  Repeat this step with the remaining dough. Set aside cooked dough while you prepare the toppings.
  6. In the same skillet, heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil. Cook the onions over medium-low heat until caramelized and very soft. Add the balsamic vinegar and cook for a few minutes more until no liquid remains and the onions are jammy. 
  7. To assemble, place the flatbreads on a large cookie sheet, then spread a generous tablespoon of Pear Walnut Chutney over each flatbread. Top with caramelized onion, pear slices, and parmesan cheese. Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes or until cheese is melty. Garnish with arugula and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
