Grilled Flatbread with duck, orange sauce, berries and crispy, crunchy duck skin is a great summer grill recipe!
1 lb fresh pizza dough
2 T olive oil/divided
1 Maple Farms Roast half duck with orange sauce
1–2 t balsamic vinegar
1 t dried thyme leaves
1/2 t garlic powder
1/4 to 1/2 t fresh ground black pepper
4–6 oz Stilton cheese with apricots
3 oz goat cheese
1/4 c thinly sliced red onion
Blackberries, Blueberries for topping flatbread
Fresh thyme for garnish
Prepare your flat bread by following pizza dough directions. I divided my pizza dough into 4 round balls and coated them with olive oil. I placed each one on parchment paper and when they were at almost room temperature I stretched them with my hands, but you could also use a rolling pin into about 8″ rounds or rectangles. Place back on parchment and set aside.
Remove duck from package and remove skin. Remove duck meat from bones. This is easy to do. Reserve duck skin and meat.
Prepare orange sauce by combining orange sauce, vinegar, thyme, garlic and pepper with another T of olive oil in a measuring cup. Mix well.
Grate your Stilton. This crumbles but that is OK.
Preheat grill to about 450. When grill is ready, oil it well and place your flatbread dough on the open grate. Cover and cook on one side only for about 3-4 minutes or until dough is lightly golden on the bottom. Watch carefully because it will burn the minute you turn your head.
At the same time grill the duck meat until is is room temperature. You don’t want to cook it because it is already cooked. You are merely giving it some extra grill flavor. When this is finished tear it into good sized shreds. Don’t chop! Grill the duck skin on both sides until golden and crunchy. When this is finished you should be able to crumble it and then it will be used to top your flatbread.
Remove dough from grill and place grill side up. Brush the grill side up of each flatbread with about 1 T of orange sauce. Top each with about 1/3 c Stilton, a few slices of red onion, your shredded duck meat and some crumbled goat cheese. Top with berries of your choice.
When all are prepared, place on 450 degree preheated grill grate that has been oiled. If grill is hot these may only take about 3-5 minutes to bake, with lid closed. This keeps the heat in and helps melt the cheese. However you can’t forget about them!
When flatbreads are done to your liking remove from grill and garnish with the crispy duck skin, a drizzle of orange sauce and some fresh thyme. You may also want another grinding of fresh black pepper.
The amount of cheese you use is up to you. If you prefer cheesy flatbread feel free to add more as well as any additional ingredients.
