brie and apple flatbread

August 25th, 2011

Honestly, there’s nothing better than a recipe that combines cheese and bread.  Take a great, runny delicious brie and a crisp, tart green apple, and then add add a drizzle of farmer’s market honey and some fabulous bread, and you basically have the best meal you could possibly imagine.

I was a little lazy, and I wasn’t in the mood to make my own pizza dough (but if you want it, my recipe is here), but I bought a large-pizza-sized dough from a local pizza place for $3.50.  It doesn’t get much easier, cheaper or more delicious than that!  I had to go into two pizza places to find a spot that would sell me just the dough, but I eventually succeeded. 

I had a meeting this weekend over breakfast, and when I took a look at the menu, basically everything on it was cheese- and bread-related.  Not bad first thing in the morning!  Of course, though, whenever I have something really good at a restaurant, I always end up making my own version within a few days.  This was created maybe 28 hours after that breakfast, and if I do say so myself, the home-cooked version was even better.

Apple and Brie Flatbread


1/2 large pizza dough
1 large green apple
1/4 lb brie cheese
2 tsbp honey


Preheat oven to 550 degrees F, using a pizza stone if you have one.  Bake the dough for about 5 minutes, and then remove from the oven.  Layer brie on bread and then add the apples.  Drizzle with honey, and bake for 5 additional minutes.  Serve.

    I agree that the apples and cheese combination is the best! I’m making a recipe tonight that combines them both, too 🙂

    I’ve made a brie and apple pizza with sausage before and it was to DIE for. I love that drizzle of honey!

    Apples, brie, and honey – one of my favorite combinations!!!  Somtimes I add toasted walnuts to the mix too.  This looks delicious and I will be making it soon!

    What a wonderful flavor combo on this.  I’ve only used fruit on flat bread once and really liked it but forget to think about trying new kinds.  Gorgeous!

    A variation to this is to put a thin layer of apricot preserves or orange marmalade between the cheese and the apples prior to baking. 

    Then top it with shaved almonds.
