Simply Healthy Family: Celery Root, Apple and Gorgonzola Flat Bread Pizza #SundaySupper


Celery Root, Apple and Gorgonzola Flat Bread Pizza #SundaySupper

Celery root may be one of the ugliest vegetables out there but it's a pretty amazing root veggie. Its mild yet interesting taste may surprise you as will how incredibly simple and versatile it is to prepare. It's mild, earthy flavor made it a perfect addition to this simple flat bread pizza. The flavor however is anything but simple! Tart and juicy Granny Smith apples and pungent Gorgonzola cheese slightly melted on top of the hot out of the oven herbed flat bread will have you slowly savouring each bite. 

This week over at Sunday Super we are all sharing our favorite root vegetables. While I can honestly say I've never tried celery root before I'm soooo glad I did! It was so much simpler to prepare than I thought and I absolutely love its mild, earthy taste, somewhat similar to a potato. 

Poor thing, not very cute is he? Once you can get pass that I promise you will love celery root. Also called celeriac, celery knob and turnip root it tastes somewhat like a cross between celery and parsley and when cooked, has the consistency of a soft potato. It's available at most markets (even though you've probably walked pass it without noticing) from October through April. 

Everyone gave this two thumbs up!

Enjoy with an ice cold pale ale for a light dinner or lunch!

As if there's not enough flavor going on, I decided to quick pickle some red onions to sprinkle on top for a bit of crunch on every bite. (Recipe coming soon!)

This flat bread recipe is incredibly easy and only has 5 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to prepare!!
No yeast or rising required making it the perfect last minute pizza dough recipe.
Look how flaky it is!

Celeriac Root, Apple and Gorgonzola Flat Bread Pizza

TIME          20 MINUTES TOTAL                 SERVES           4


Recipe for Flat Bread HERE

2-3 small celery roots
2 Granny Smith apples
1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
1 teaspoon each dried oregano and thyme (or Herbs de Provence)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon olive oil

Pre-heat oven to 400F. Cut the ends off of the celery root and discard. trim the skin as you would a potato and discard. Slice into 1/4 inch thick round pieces then quarter pieces. Slice and chop the apple the same way leaving the peel on (for fiber!)

Toss the chopped celery root with the olive oil and herbs. Place on a stone baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes turning once. Put a stone pizza round in the oven to heat up while the celery root cooks. If you don't have one, simple remove the cooked roots from the pan and use the still hot pan to transfer your dough onto.  Meanwhile, make your flat bread.

Sprinkle the cooked celery root, chopped apples and Gorgonzola cheese on the still hot flat bread.
