    For the Dough

    Combine ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook. Mix on medium speed for 10-15 minutes until a smooth elastic dough is formed. Tip: this dough will be a little sticky now but is easy to work with when you are rolling it out.

    Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and let rest in a warm spot until dough has almost doubled in size. Stretch your dough or roll into a 12” pizza shape. Tip: if you are having a hard time rolling pizza out thin enough, cover the partly rolled dough and let sit for 5 – 10 minutes to relax the gluten.

    Tip: if making dough ahead of time, store in the fridge and allow it to rest on the counter for 20 minutes before rolling.

    For the Topping

    Toss vegetables with oil and grill over high heat until well charred. Remove vegetables form the grill and let sit until cool enough to handle.

    Roughly chop vegetables, transfer to a bowl, and stir well. Tip: grilled ratatouille can be made in advance or prepped earlier in the day. Try substituting peppers, mushrooms, or other vegetables for a new taste.

    For the Marinated Bocconcini

    Drain bocconcini from water. Cut bocconcini in half and combine with remaining ingredients.

    Assembly Method
    Grill: preheat half of your grill to medium heat, leaving one side off. Lightly brush the top of the dough with oil. Place dough oil side down on preheated medium hot grill. Let dough cook for 2-3 minutes until lightly charred, flip dough and cook for another 2 minutes. Tip: watch your dough closely! Look out for hot spots on your grill, it is okay to check the dough and move it around the grill during cooking. Return the dough to the side of the grill that has been left off. Brush top of dough with oil and sprinkle with fresh chopped garlic. Close the lid and let the toppings warm through. Tip: the mozzarella may not melt; we just want the toppings to be warmed. Remove flatbread from the grill, cut into triangles and garnish with fresh chopped basil and drizzle of balsamic glaze.
