  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp chicken, beef, or veggie stock
  • 1 pre-made thin crust flatbread
  • 2 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic glaze
  1. Heat butter in skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, 30 to 40 minutes. Once onions begin to soften and brown, sprinkle with salt and stir in stock. Cook additional 1 to 2 minutes and remove from heat.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  3. Lay flatbread on baking sheet. Brush with 1 tsp olive oil and top with caramelized onions and goat cheese. Bake 8 to 12 minutes, or until cheese melts and crust is crisp. Remove from oven.
  4. Toss arugula with 1 tsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Top flatbread with arugula and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
