Figgy Flatbread Recipe
Seriously, this goodness is so easy to make. It takes about 1 minute to assemble and 5 to 7 minutes to cook depending on if you want your crust chewy or crispy.
It all starts with the flatbread. I spread fig jam on the bread and peppered it with fresh mozzarella balls. Bake it to crispy perfection, drizzle on balsamic reduction and salad greens for a dose of healthy.
And, there you have it. A gourmet flatbread in less than 10 minutes, for a fraction of the cost, and you didn’t have to put on makeup and go out for it! That’s winning!
For the Figgy Flatbread
You can find flatbread at most grocery stores now. You can usually find it fresh in the bakery or on the bread aisle. It comes in large and small rounds, as well as rectangular which I used.
- As well, I use Naan flatbread that’s about 1/2-inch thick and soft. The dough has eggs and yogurt.
- Pita is another flatbread. It’s drier and thinner than naan. Pita is made with flour, water, yeast, salt, olive oil.
- Chapati is an unleavened flatbread traditionally made from very finely milled whole wheat flour. It tends to be thin and papery.
- Lavash is a soft, thin unleavened flatbread made in a tandoor. It’s easy to find at most stores in Joseph’s brand.
For the Jam
Fig jam is with jams and jellies at the grocery store or at the links I highlight above.
For the Cheese
I used freeze mozzarella. However, goat cheese, blue cheese, or burrata cheese is great on it.
