Notes

  • If you're in a rush, try using some store-bought flatbread or naan to make this recipe!
  • You can spread pesto on the dough before baking if you want more of a pizza feel to this summer flatbread.
  • Feel free to use whichever greens you like on this and by all means, pile them high! You can even add a fully dressed salad on top of this and enjoy with a big dollop of burrata.
