Happy Fourth of July everyone!

I hope you’re busy with lots of fun stuff today.  I’m about to take off for the day with my boys.  We’re going to do a hike and then get some lunch and ice cream, and then later tonight we’ll be grilling up some dogs and watching fireworks.

I know this sounds crazy, but the last time we had hot dogs I topped mine with pineapple, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and sriracha and I’m telling you, it was the best hot dog I have EVER had.  It’s a weird flavor combination but it really works- you’ve gotta give it a try!

So- busy day!  I’ve only got a few minutes to talk at ya so I’m going to keep it short and sweet.

This is such a fun recipe for those days where you just want to do nothing but be outside.  In other words, pretty much every summer day!

The combination of honey and whole wheat, yeast-y and grilled to smoky perfection, along with lightly sweet, fluffy whipped ricotta and juicy fresh berries is just perfection.  You can eat it warm off the grill or just nibble on it at room temp- either way.

You’ll love this dough recipe because it’s so simple to make and there’s no down time whatsoever.  No waiting for it to rise or anything like that.  And when you use your stand mixer + dough hook you don’t even have to knead it.

Pop it on the grill to get nice charred marks on each side and then top it.  It’s that simple and so perfectly summery!

If you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert to serve for July 4th, or any other time this summer, give this one a try!  It’s sure to please.

Have a safe and happy holiday!

Serves 6-8 servings     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup warm (not hot) water
  • 3 tablespoons neutral-tasting oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 cup to 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • Semolina, for dusting the pan
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of one lemon
  • A pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 cups whole-milk ricotta
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 8 ounces fresh blueberries
  • 4 ounces fresh raspberries

Instructions

  1. For the crust

    1. Place the all-purpose flour, yeast, and salt in the bowl of the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer, fitted with the flat beater, and stir together on low speed (2).
    2. In a separate bowl, combine the water, oil, and honey. Pour the liquid ingredients into the bowl of the Stand Mixer, and stir together with the dry ingredients on medium-low speed (4 or 6) until combined.
    3. Switch out the flat beater with the dough hook. While stirring on medium-low speed, gradually add the whole wheat flour, just until the dough pulls together into a ball and no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl. You may not need all of the flour.
    4. Knead the dough in the Stand Mixer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it feels smooth and elastic. Allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes.
    5. Preheat the KitchenAid® Stainless Steel 8 Burner Gas Grill to 550°F.
    6. Flatten/stretch the rested dough to a thickness of about 1/4″. Transfer it to a KitchenAid® Cookie Sheet, dusted with semolina. Slide the dough onto the grates of the hot Gas Grill, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on medium heat, or until browned on the bottom. Flip the dough over and cook the other side for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

    For the topping

    1. Place the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, lemon zest, and salt in the bowl of the Stand Mixer, fitted with the whisk and whip together on medium-high speed (6) until smooth. Add the ricotta and cream, and whip until fluffy.
    2. Spread the cheese mixture over the warm flatbread, top with fresh berries, and dust with powdered sugar.
