Brie Pear Walnut Honey Flatbread

Sweet, salty, gooey, and crunchy. This flatbread has a combination of ingredients that are delicious on their own, but when combined, are pure heaven.

This recipe is an adaptation of a popular menu item from a little brunch place in Little Italy/Portugal in Toronto called Saving Grace.  It’s been years since I dined there, way before I realized I was gluten-intolerant, but I still remember the brie, pear, walnut and honey on toasted baguette.  The blend of flavours was so perfect and I wanted to recreate a gluten-free version to enjoy at home.  I’ve made this a flatbread here but this would be great on your favourite gluten-free bread too.  Bonus, it’s super fast to whip up and fancy enough to be an appetizer, especially when served with a chilled sparkling wine.  A sweet way to start summer.
