Pesto Lavosh Pizza with Smoked Gouda
So, Andrew and his buddies have cycling races called Tortilla Flats every Tuesday Night now. They have been doing AMAZING, so whenever I don't work on a Tuesday night, I like to reward them with a nice home-cooked meal :) This meal was a huge hit! It was simple, and really cheap to make. I started off with a sheet of Lavosh, I got a pack of 10 a trader joe's for less than $4. Brush each side of the Lavosh with olive oil and then bake it at 350 until it's a little crispy ( about 5 min). While the Lavosh is baking slice up some mushrooms, tomatoes and garlic. Saute the the mushrooms, garlic and spinach in one pan with some olive oil until the spinach looks wilted and the mushrooms are tender. In anther pan throw the sliced tomatoes in with some oil oil and cook until they blister. After the Lavosh is crispy, spread on some pesto to cover the entire surface. Then I put on the the blistered tomatoes, top those with shredded smoked gouda, and then top that with the garlic, spinach and mushrooms. Bake at 350 until cheese is melted (about 7 min).
