Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 ounce active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup warm water (not hot)
  • 3 tablespoons neutral-tasting oil (such as vegetable oil or grapeseed oil)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (you may need as much as 1 1/4 cup)
  • Semolina for dusting the pan
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (plus more for garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest (zest of 1 lemon)
  • 1/8 teaspoon 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
For the crust
  1. Place the all-purpose flour, yeast, and salt in a large mixing bowl, and stir together.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the water, oil, and honey. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

  3. 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. 

  4. Knead the dough for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it feels smooth and elastic. Allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes.

  5. Preheat the grill to 550°F.

  6. Flatten/stretch the rested dough to a thickness of about 1/4″. Transfer it to a cookie sheet dusted with semolina. Slide the dough onto the grates of the hot 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 a large bowl,  and whip together 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.
