Go Steelers!

Over one billion chicken wings will be eaten on Superbowl Sunday, 2009. Amazing statistic, and I'm proud to be a part of it. But since I've written so much about wings on this blog, I'm going to forego any comment on the wings we plan to eat (or talk about the risk that I took in obtaining those wings from Fairway) and focus on my other favorite party food: flatbread pizza. We made these one night a few years ago for an Oscar's Party and they were a hit. Super simple and fun for the kids.

Superbowl Pizza

Flatbread (or pita)
Sun-dried Tomatoes
Red onion
Olive oil
Salt & pepper

Lay out as many rounds as you like on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Brush with olive oil. Cut your onion in rounds, chop your olives and sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces or strips. Grate your cheese. Add rounds of onion, pieces of olive and tomato, top with shredded cheese. Season with salt and pepper and pop in the oven at 350 degrees F until cheese is melted. Cut into six pieces for each round and serve.

I used Bulgarian Kashkaval cheese and oil-cured Moroccan olives, but you can use any kind of melty cheese and any kind of olives. You can even use fresh tomatoes. There's no science to this recipe, it's just about combining flavors and colors.
