Avocado, Feta & Cherry Tomato Salsa Flatbreads

Recipe adapted from Food and Wine

  1. 2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
  2. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  3. 1 small shallot, minced
  4. 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  6. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  7. Kosher salt
  8. Black pepper
  9. All-purpose flour, for dusting
  10. Pizza Dough - store bought or homemade
  11. 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  12. 1 Hass avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
  1. In a bowl, toss the cherry tomatoes with the 1/2 cup of olive oil, shallot, cilantro, vinegar and crushed red pepper. Season the salsa with salt and black pepper. This can stand at room temp for several hours.
  2. Light a grill. On a lightly floured work surface, press and stretch each piece of dough to an 8-inch oval and brush with olive oil. Grill dough over moderately high heat, turning once, until puffed and lightly charred, 5 minutes. Transfer to a work surface. Spoon the salsa over the flatbreads and top with the feta and avocado. Cut the flatbreads into wedges and serve .
