AG Recipe: Villard Restaurant’s New Yorker Flatbread

Salmon Flatbread

We love Bagels! We love flatbread! We love breakfast! So, imagine when we got our hands on this spin on a morning favorite, featured at Villard Restaurant in the historic Villard Mansion at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel!

The restaurant, lead by Chef Oscar Granados, offers New American Breakfast, and boasts locally sourced, farm to table ingredients, inspired by French cafes and European bistros.

This pizza uses a “pastrami style” spiced smoked salmon, crème fraîche in place of cream cheese and a light pizza crust. You can substitute ready made pita bread or flatbread.

A light, summer breakfast “take” on a traditional salmon and toasted bagel.


The Makings:

Prep time: 20 minutes

Pizza dough

1 cup crème fraîche

1oz diced pancetta rendered

2 oz shredded asiago cheese

2 oz caramelized onions

2 whole eggs

2 oz pastrami style smoked salmon

2 breakfast radish sliced

1 cup of frisée salad greens

1 pickled red onions

Let’s Create it!

In a small mixing bowl combine the crème fraîche, caramelized onion, pancetta and asiago cheese together

Spread mixture evenly onto rolled out pizza dough. Enough for a small 12” pie or rustic shaped flatbread

Crack two whole eggs onto the mixture, or lightly scrambled and drizzle throughout

Bake in a preheated oven at 380 degrees for approximately 15 minutes or until pizza crust is baked to your liking.

Remove from oven and garnish evenly with pickled onions, radish slices, salmon and fresh frisée greens

Cut into eight squares and serve
