A beautiful, simple flatbread for holiday appetizer season. Just top a pre-baked naan with creamy ricotta and jewel-colored pomegranate salsa.

Slices of pita bread on a cutting board with ricotta cheese and pomegranate seeds on top.

It’s late fall again and the beginning of my favorite time of year for cooking.

There’s such a great variety of produce piled up in the markets having their “it” moment right now it’s almost overwhelming.

I want to gather everything up and devour it all before it’s gone!

I’m thinking of the fruits that were recently harvested, like apples and pears that haven’t been in cold storage for months and months.

And let’s not forget the last of the late season figs, and the fleeting appearance of big, beautiful jeweled-red pomegranates.

Ever since I first made this ricotta flatbread recipe I wanted to use Pomegranate Relish from chef Suzanne Goin’s cookbook Sunday Suppers at Lucques it’s been a favorite! I made it this time around with some dried cranberries to top some creamy ricotta-topped flatbread.

    I love this!! It is so flavorful and beautiful with all the colors. I make it every Christmas season! I can’t wait for dinner tonight. Thank you for this recipe!!

  2. Hey there. Nice site. I wanted to ask, though, where did
    you purchase the theme? Or did you develop it yourself?
    I’m putting up my own site and am on the lookout for a theme as solid as this one.
    Thanks again.

    My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different web address and thought I may
    as well check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to looking at your web page again.

  4. Got together with some friends to make some fresh ricotta cheese and decided to use this recipe to try it. We loved it! The pop in your mouth from the pomegranate and the hint of orange and honey was delicious. Yum! May try it on toasted baguette slices next time and do it more as an appetizer. Thank you for sharing this!

  5. Made this recipe today for a bridal shower. I could not find where I had filed the recipe do forgot orange rind salt and paesley . I substituted goat cheese for the ricotta cheese and was amazing .will be making this all summer

    1. Cindy, goat cheese sounds like a fine substitute. So glad you liked it! I think it would be great with summer berries, too.

  6. Yum! I’m going to have to make this soon! Or else wait until the college kids are home for Thanksgiving! I think they’d like it, too.
