Flatbreads are traditionally unleavened bread, which is made without yeast. Flour, water, and salt are the main ingredients and popular flatbreads are naan and pita. We like to use store bought pre-made pizza shells or fresh pizza dough we pick up at the local Italian Store. Or if you have a favourite pizza dough recipe, make it and use that for your flatbread.
Flatbreads can be used as sandwiches, to scoop up stews or curries or add some toppings and serve with dinner.
Use your favourite cheese when making this Cheesy Basil Flatbread or use the old white cheddar as recommended. This cheese or any smoked cheese adds a little bite and flavour boost. It’s perfect for lunch or dinner served with a side salad.
Change it up by adding roasted garlic, olives, sun dried tomatoes, salami, artichoke hearts or any of your lighter favourite toppings.
