Sausage, Blueberry and Goat Cheese Flatbread

Blueberries are just as delicious in savory recipes like this delightful Sausage, Blueberry and Goat Cheese Flatbread. This is a simple recipe that can be grilled outdoors or baked in the oven. For a kid-friendly version, the goat cheese can be substituted with shredded Mozzarella.


  • 4 prepared flatbread

  • 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4-1/3 cup prepared basil pesto

  • 4-6 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (1-1½ cups shredded mozzarella can be substituted)

  • 1-pound ground Italian sausage, cooked

  • 1-pint blueberries, halved (so they don’t roll off the flatbread)

  • ½ bunch fresh basil leaves, torn


  • Pre-heat the grill to 400F.

  • Brush the flatbread with olive oil.

  • Spread about 2-3 teaspoons of basil pesto on one side of each flatbread. Then top the flat bread with goat cheese (or mozzarella) then layer on the crumbled sausage and blueberries.

  • Place the flat bread on the pre-heated grill over medium heat. Cover and let the flatbread cook until the edges are golden, and the cheese is melted.

  • Transfer the flat bread to a cutting board and sprinkle with fresh basil. Let them cool for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
