  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 packet dry active yeast
  • 3 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 2/3 cup LUCKY LEAF® Apple Butter
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • olive oil for grilling



  1. Step 1
    Prepare the dough by combining the water, honey, olive oil, and yeast in a mixing bowl. Let rest for five minutes or until the mixture is foamy.

  2. Step 2
    Add in the flour and salt, and mix until well-combined, but still sticky. Remove from bowl, and knead for 5-7 minutes, or until the dough is stretchy and smooth. You may also do this in a stand mixer with a dough hook attached. Mix on a medium speed until mixed, then knead on low speed for 5-7 minutes until the dough forms a smooth and stretchy ball on the hook.

  3. Step 3
    Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for about a hour, or until noticeably puffy.


  1. Step 1
    To make the flatbreads, heat the butter in a heavy-bottom saucepan over medium-high heat. Add in the sliced onions, and cook until just translucent, about three minutes.

  2. Step 2
    Reduce the heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 25-30 minutes, or until the onions are dark, sticky, and sweet-tasting. Remove from heat. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high and oil the grill grates.

  3. Step 3
    To assemble the flatbreads, divide the dough into thirds, and then stretch one of the thirds into a flat oval shape.

  4. Step 4
    Using a pastry brush, coat one side of the flatbread, and then place the dough, oil-side down, on the grill. Close the grill lid, and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until just puffy.

  5. Step 5
    Brush the top with more oil, and then flip. Top with 1/3 of the apple butter, followed by 1/3 of the onions, 1/3 of the blue cheese and 1/3 of the mozzarella.

  6. Step 6
    Close the grill lid and cook just until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Top with fresh cracked pepper.

  7. Step 7
    Repeat with remaining dough and toppings. Slice into four pieces before serving.
