Recipe notes
Use already-baked flatbreads for this tasty pizza recipe, topped with caramelized onions, duck confit, fresh corn, and tangy goat chevre.
RECIPE Preparation
  1. Shred duck confit off the bone in bite-sized pieces, and set aside.
  2. Melt butter with one tablespoon of duck fat in a large, wide skillet over medium heat. Add 2 cups sliced onions, two pinches of salt, and smoked paprika. Cook over medium heat until the onions are soft and caramelized. Stir frequently to keep from browning. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the olive oil with minced garlic and herbes de Provence.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  5. Place the flatbreads on a baking sheet and brush the tops with herb oil. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove crusts from the oven, and top each with half of the caramelized onions, half of the shredded duck confit, and half of the corn kernels (defrost first, if using frozen). Return to the oven and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and crumble the goat cheese over the pizzas. Top each pizza with a ½ cup of arugula, a drizzle of remaining herbed olive oil, salt, and pepper.
