Rockin' The Kitchen | BBQ Pineapple Flatbreads
Growing up, my family owned pizza places. Like, LEGIT pizza places, so I guess you could say I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to the pizza/flatbread department.
With that, I know the impact a good one can have on a meal (we've all had TERRIBLE pizza) and so I took great care when making these. The poblano pepper and BBQ sauce with the pineapple juice and vinegar-picked red onions was an unreal mashup of sweet, savory, and spicy and definitely felt substantial. Two thumbs up for this recipe from HelloFresh!

Instructions | PDF 1 Place a foil-lined baking sheet on top rack (for 4 servings, 2 foil-lined sheets, on top and middle racks) and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Drain pineapple over a small bowl, reserving juice. Stir ¼ of the onion, half the vinegar (you’ll use the rest later), and a pinch of salt into bowl with pineapple juice. Set aside. 2 Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add remaining onion and cook, stirring and adding splashes of water as necessary to prevent sticking, until softened, 6-8 minutes. 3 Meanwhile, halve, core, and very thinly slice poblano into strips. Toss in a second small bowl with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Dice mozzarella into ½-inch pieces. Finely chop cilantro. 4 Once cooked onion is softened, increase heat under pan to medium high. Add pineapple and another drizzle of oil; cook, stirring, until pineapple is lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Stir in remaining vinegar. Cook, stirring, until onion and pineapple are caramelized and jammy, 1-2 minutes more. Turn off heat and season with salt and pepper. 5 Brush or rub each side of flatbreads with a drizzle of oil. Remove prepared baking sheet from oven; carefully place flatbreads on it (for 4 servings, divide flatbreads between 2 prepared sheets). Evenly spread with BBQ sauce, then top with caramelized onion and pineapple, poblano, Monterey Jack, and mozzarella. 6 Return flatbreads to top rack until cheese has melted and edges are golden brown, 10-12 minutes. (For 4 servings, return to top and middle racks; swap rack positions halfway through baking.) Transfer to a cutting board and top with cilantro and pickled onion to taste. Slice into pieces and serve.
