Ingredients (7)

  • 1 (11-inch) premade pizza crust or flatbread, such as Boboli, baked and cooled
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 medium red onion, halved and sliced paper thin
  • 1/4 pound smoked duck breast, thinly sliced
  • 3 ounces shredded Monterey Jack cheese (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

Summary

Keep these ingredients in your pantry and you’ll be ready to whip up a quick hors d’oeuvre or light meal in no time.

What to buy: Look for smoked duck breast in gourmet grocery stores, at your butcher, or online at D’Artagnan. If you have a hard time finding smoked duck, you can substitute cooked bacon, prosciutto, speck, or even smoked salmon.

Instructions

  1. 1Line the bottom of the oven with aluminum foil and heat to 450°F.
  2. 2Brush pizza crust with hoisin sauce and top with red onion. Arrange smoked duck breast in a circle and top with cheese.
  3. 3Place pizza directly on the oven rack and bake until golden and crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes. Top with cilantro and red pepper flakes (if using), cut into small squares (if serving as an hors d’oeuvre), and serve.

Beverage pairing: Adelsheim Pinot Gris, Oregon. Smoked duck and hoisin might typically have paired with a round, perhaps slightly woody Pinot Noir, but the addition of cilantro pushes the pairing to a white wine with some green, herbal flavors. Pinot Gris fits the bill, and in Oregon they make a delicious, sometimes lush style that can often drink a bit like a red wine, making it a nice choice for this rich, brightly flavored dish.
