Rocky Mountain Flatbread just launched their new summer menu which features fresh, local ingredients. Since it is the perfect time to get amazing produce in and around the city, they really do their best to highlight these items. The summer menu is akin to shopping at the farmer’s market, getting the best seasonal ingredients, and knowing how to combine it all to create delicious salads, pastas, and pizzas.
Heirloom Avocado Toast
For me, the highlight is seeing the consideration they put into selecting their ingredients, including using the right tomato for a dish. For example, the Heirloom Avocado Toast featured sliced red and yellow heirloom tomatoes, while the Fire Roasted Pizza had multi-coloured cherry heirloom tomato. It is also topped with sunflower sprouts and hemp hearts.
Fire Roasted Pizza
Rocky Mountain strives to offer nut free, gluten free, and vegan options. New to the summer menu is the Vegan “Cau” Cheese, their house-made vegan, nut-free cheese substitute made from cauliflower. It was used in the Vegan Fire Roasted Pizza, Harvest Farmer Pizza and the Plant Based Summer Green Salad.
Chorizo and Cod Pizza
While there’s an emphasis on fresh greens and vegetables, there is no shortage of options for omnivores. My favourite dish was the Chorizo and Cod Pizza, which starts with a spicy tomato base, chorizo, bell pepper, red onions, sun-dried tomato, mozzarella, and green onions, then topped with pan seared Ocean Wise cod. It’s packed with flavours, textures, and just the right amount of heat.
Fig and Goat Cheese Salad
Rocky Mountain salads are always tasty, always piled high, and the Fig and Goat Cheese Salad was no exception. It features assorted greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onions tossed in Black Mission Fig dressing, then topped with sliced figs, goat cheese crumbles and Vancouver-grown sunflower sprouts.
The Rocky Mountain Flatbread’s summer menu is now available and it’s a great spot to take those who love pizza and salads. Rocky Mountain Flatbread has always been known for a space that is kid friendly in a relaxed atmosphere.
