Rustic Pizza

Flatbreads are similar to pizzas, but a little more rustic and simple. They can be grilled or baked in the oven and deliciously topped with any combination of flavors. Savory or sweet, flatbreads make a mouthwatering centerpiece meal as well as a nice accompaniment to a summer supper.

I've made my own flatbread a few times and it never disappoints. I like that you can make it however you want and put whatever you want on it. It's very custom and delicious!
