Whole wheat rosemary flat bread

Flatbread is just what it sounds like. It’s a simple bread (similar to pita bread) and because you don’t use yeast, it doesn’t rise high like other bread.

Another nice thing about flatbread is that you can use it to make your favorite sandwiches or even as a pizza-type shell. Easy to make, this gluten-free bread is a nice switch from the usual crackers.
