Sun Basket is proud to source the organic ingredients indicated below. On the rare occasion we are unable to meet our organic promise, we'll put a note in your bag.
  • 2 ounces roasted red peppers
  • ¼ pound fresh mozzarella
  • 4 round whole grain flatbreads
  • Sun Basket basil pesto (EVOO - walnuts - basil - garlic - kosher salt - black pepper)
  • 10 ounces organic asparagus
  • ¼ pound organic cremini or other button mushrooms
  • ¼ pound organic grape or cherry tomatoes

Chef's Tip

If you prefer a crispy crust, you can lightly oil the flatbreads and toast them in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes while you prep the ingredients (Step 1). Then assemble the pizzette as directed. The additional minutes in the oven without the toppings will ensure that extra crack to your crust.

1

Prep and bake the pizzette

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; thinly slice the peppers.
  • Cut or tear the mozzarella into 1-inch pieces.
On a sheet pan [2 sheet pans], place the flatbreads side by side and brush the edges lightly with oil. Spread two-thirds of the pesto evenly over the flatbreads, leaving a ½-inch border around the edges. Top with the roasted red peppers and mozzarella and season with salt and pepper. Bake until the mozzarella is melted and the crust is crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into wedges.
While the flatbreads bake, prepare the vegetables.

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the asparagus, season with salt and pepper, and cook until crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
If the pan is dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are lightly browned and just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to the plate with the asparagus and season the vegetables to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pizzette wedges and vegetables to individual plates. Serve the remaining pesto on the side.
