Step 1: Prepare toppings

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a small food processor, blend ricotta and olive oil until smooth and airy. Set aside. In a small bowl, mix butter, Honey Powder, and Black Garlic Salt until smooth. In a medium pan over medium heat, melt 2 Tbsp. of the butter mixture. Add shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 min. until caramelized. Set aside.

Step 2: Assemble flatbread

Lightly spread butter mixture on one side of each piece of naan and place on baking sheet, buttered side up. Bake for 4 to 5 min. until heated through. Spread with whipped ricotta, top with reserved shallot, and sprinkle with parsley, green tomatoes, and Black Garlic Salt to taste.
