Flat Bread Ideas?

I got some flat breads at the store yesterday and now I can't think of anything to do with them!

What are some of your favorite things to do with flat bread?

What kind of flat bread did you buy? There are so many kinds. You can make a mini-pizza, you can use them for delivery devices for hummus and other types of spreads. You can use them for open-faced sandwiches...all kinds of things.

are they crispy or soft?

do they already have any herbs, spices, seasonings, or veggies baked into or onto them?

How flat are they? Are they flat enough to roll something in them?

Mediterranean Flatbreads

Buon Giorno, Good Morning,

Welcome to D.C.

Here are a couple of simple flatbreads from my side of the globe:

Greek: feta cheese with sautéed spinach seasoned with garlic, S&P, Evoo which is extra virgin olive oil and seasonings: orégano, parsley or basil and a pinch of dried basil ... a drizzle of Evoo ...

Napoli Style: buffala di mozzarella, cherry tomato and fresh basil called Caprese.

Ligurian: pinenuts, garlic, Evoo, fresh Basil & Reggiano Parmesano prepared in a Pesto and spread on the dough and baked ...

Black Olive & Smoked Anchovy Tapenade ...

Eastern Mediterranean: Bell Red Pepper, Walnuts, Evoo, Garlic, Modena Balsamic Vinegar.

Sides for Dipping plain baked Flatbreads: hummus, babghanuj and taramosalata or tzatziki ( see my recipes in Ethnic and Vegetables for the babghanuj ) ...

Have great August,
Margi.

got there first cw darn it! like cw said...pizza's.i like mine very thin & crispy so the f/breads work a treat.but you do have to check on the type,you don't want to go making pizza with ones that inflate in the oven like tortilla's do......very messy oven!!

wow! I didn't know there were so many different kinds of flatbread...

I just got the kind I'm used to seeing. :) It's plain, no spices or anything, thicker than a tortilla, and maybe thinner than a piece of bread, but more dense. And round. In case you want a visual: Toufayan Bakeries - pita,mini pita,flatbread, flat bread, bagel, smartbagel, smart bagel, lavash, breadstick, croissant, wrap, 80 calorie

By the way... I put one in the oven last night with some random stuff on it... it didn't inflate! Actually I think it just got crispier...

Okay--so it's not a pita, it is not the sweet flat bread my grandmother made <g> as a dessert flat bread, it probably would work for toppings. Anything you'd like to put on an open-faced sandwich (the sky is the limit), or as the base for a mini pizza. Is it whole wheat or white? (This is reminds me of playing 20 questions!)

I'd make sandwiches with them Slice down the length open it up and put on small amount of baby greens then sprinkle with evoo and white balsamic or red wine vinegar, or you could use mayo and mustard. Layer with Italian meats say several pieces of mortadella, then several of ham they must be thin sliced, salami, and then cheese Gruyere, fresh thin sliced tomato,thin sliced sweet onion. Open wide and enjoy with homemade refrigerator pickles, some chips or fries, Icy cold tea.
