2 (14-inch) flatbread pizzettas
Level:
Easy

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup Tomato Sauce, divided, recipe follows
  • 2 cups shredded cheese of choice, divided
  • Toppings of choice
Tomato Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced or minced
  • 2 cups minced or grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
  • 4 cups whole peeled whole tomatoes, crushed, juices reserved
  • 1 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

In the bowl of an electric mixer with the whisk attachment, blend the flour, garlic, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Add the water and mix well on low speed until a dough-like mixture is formed. (The water amount may need to be adjusted so the dough is moist but not wet.) Once mixed, wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Split the dough in half and roll out on a floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Transfer to a baking sheet and place in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and evenly spread 1/2 cup Tomato Sauce and half the cheese. Add additional toppings, if desired. Bake for a second time until the cheese is melted, 8 to10 minutes. Repeat with the other dough ball.

Tomato Sauce:

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the onions and garlic and cook until soft. Add the carrots and wine, deglazing the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and add the thyme, cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and their juices and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the basil. Continue to cook over low heat for 20 to 30 minutes. Taste for seasoning and remove from the heat.
