In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Roll out pizza dough by dividing the dough ball in half and making 2 flatbread bases.
  3. Proof on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper in the fridge while you make mornay and blanch veggies.
  4. In a small pot, add cold water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.
  5. In another small pot melt butter and flour and whisk until there are no lumps in the mixture. Add milk on top and whisk over medium heat until it starts to thicken.
  6. Add cheese to mornay and adjust seasoning, set aside to cool while you blanch your veggies.
  7. Trim the tougher part of the asparagus off and blanch in salted boiling water for 2 minutes to make the green pop! Do the same with the peas and shock in ice water until chilled.
  8. Remove flat bread from fridge and spread a generous layer of mornay edge to edge. Assemble the lemon slices, asparagus and peas on top and bake until golden and crispy, approximately 15-20 minutes.
  9. Garnish with more mornay, some pretty flowers and soft herbs or leaves.
