Things You'll Need
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 large naval orange
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 ball (1 lbs) pre-made pizza dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (8 oz) wheel of brie cheese
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
Kosher or sea salt
Step 1: Make the Cranberry Sauce
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Add the cranberries, juice from one orange (about 1/2 cup), and sugar to a pot over medium-high heat. Simmer until cranberries have broken down and the mixture reaches the consistency of a thick jam, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
Need cranberry sauce for your holiday table? Just make a double (or triple!) batch and you'll have enough for the flatbreads and more than enough leftover for the table! You can also substitute 1 cup of your favorite cranberry sauce for the topping on these flatbreads.
Step 2: Cut the Dough into Portions
On a lightly floured surface, cut the dough into 8 equal sized portions (you can also make small, two bite flatbreads by cutting the dough into 16 equal sized pieces).
Press and pull them into circles about 4 inches in diameter.

Step 3: Top
Place the circles on a baking sheet and brush dough with olive oil. Slice the cheese (with the rind on) into thin slices. Add two slices to each circle. Top with about 1 tablespoon of cranberry sauce, and sprinkle with rosemary.
Step 4: Bake
Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes or until the dough is browned and the cheese has melted. Remove from oven, sprinkle with salt. Serve warm.
