Wisconsin Flatbread Pizza

An ode to all things Wisconsin.

I’ve been thinking about doing a new signature state dish series, focusing on one iconic recipe from all 50 states. And, naturally, I was going to start with Wisconsin. But man, it was hard to think of just one famous recipe to put above the rest. Wisconsin, like so many other states, has so many unique culinary traditions.

So as I was thinking about this new series, I had a totally new idea. What if I took everything I love about Wisconsin foods and created something from it? The result would either be delicious or horrifying.

Thankfully, it was the former. I present to you the Wisconsin Flatbread Pizza, a crackery thin pizza topped with stone ground spicy mustard, sauerkraut, beer brats, and of course, fresh cheese curds – a perfect Wisconsin-inspired meal that goes down great with beer.
