Roasted Grape Gluten Free Pizza.

Wednesday, 17 April 2013

It’s my belief that roasting fruit is the stuff of genius.  It never ceases to amaze me how a humble piece of fruit can be transformed in the oven.  Take the grape for example.  I’ve never really been a fan.  They’re fine, but not really on my radar on a day to day basis.  I can never help but associate them with something you bring a sick person in hospital.  Roast them in the oven however and you have sweet and caramelised deliciousness.  When I happened upon this post from How Sweet It Is I was instantly inspired to roast some grapes and I knew I wanted them on pizza.

I used my old favourite gluten free flat bread recipe originally adapted from BBC Good Food.  Simply add the roasted grapes to the flat breads once they are cooked and finish off under the grill topped with hard goat cheese.  The sweet grapes paired with the tangy goat cheese were a match made in heaven.
 
To roast the grapes simply wash, cut in half and lay on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and roast at Gas Mark 7, 220°C, 425°F for about 20 minutes until the grapes are caramelised and beginning to burst.

  1. agree with you totally on the roasting front. this not just only applies to fruits, but also vegetables, the roasting just intensifies its natural sweetness wonderfully! thing is, I actually really like fresh fruit too, especially fresh grapes, just popping them like popcorn into my mouth when I get a good sweet bunch. I've nevr though of roasting them, because they seem so fragile, but now I can't wait to try this! and you even did this on pizza!! two new firsts for me!

    1. I hope you like them roasted and if you do put them on pizza it's kind of like having pizza with jam on top but in a good way. :)
