Basil Flatbread

Grilled Basil Flatbread Recipe

I love making my own homemade pizza dough, so I figured it was about time I made my own flatbread as well!

Flatbread is the thin and crispy sibling of pizza that is perfect for topping with a number of delicious ingredients!  I made this homemade basil flatbread as the base for my Grilled Peach Flatbread with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Reduction. The result was crisp perfection!
