15 Minute Flatbreads

7.30.2012

Flatbreads are one of my favorite easy dinners to make – not quite greasy pizza, but just as delicious. You can really create any kind of flatbread you're in the mood for, depending what you have on-hand using these recipes as a guide. Over that past few weeks, I've made some of the most delicious flatbreads I've ever had (the photo above is an instagram of mine) in less than 30 minutes.

These two recipes take about 5 minutes prep time and about 5-10 minutes to bake, depending on how crispy/melty you like them to be. To save time, I start with pre-made whole wheat wraps instead of creating my own bread base.


Pear, Gorgonzola & Sunflower Seed Flatbread (inspired by the menu of my favorite spot, Audrey Claire)
+ 1 pack whole wheat wraps
+ 1 fresh Bosc pear per flatbread, rinsed
+ 1 block gorgonzola cheese (or 1 package crumbled gorgonzola)
+ 1 package (or about 2 scoops if you're shopping at Whole Foods) unsalted, shelled sunflower seeds
+ sea salt / ground pepper | extra virgin olive oil optional

Feta, Tomato & Basil Flatbread
+ 1 pack whole wheat wraps
+ 1 large fresh tomato per 2 wraps, rinsed
+ 1 block feta cheese (or 1 package crumbled feta)
+ a few sprigs of fresh basil leaves
+ sea salt / ground pepper | extra virgin olive oil optional



Pear, Gorgonzola & Sunflower Seed Flatbread 
+ Preheat oven to 375°.
+ Peel skin from pear (if preferred). Slice pear into thin wedges, removing any seeds. Spread evenly around the flat wrap.
+ Sprinkle handful of crumbled or sliced gorgonzola cheese evenly over pear. Top with handful of shelled sunflower seeds. If desired, dash with about one tablespoon of olive oil.
+ Bake in the over for about 5-10 minutes (until cheese looks melty and pear and sunflower seeds start to brown).
+ Remove from oven and top with freshly ground sea salt and pepper (this simple step adds a lot of taste!).


Feta, Tomato & Basil Flatbread
+ Preheat oven to 375°.
+ Slice tomato into thin slices or wedges. Spread evenly around the flat wrap.
+ Sprinkle handful of crumbled or cubed feta cheese evenly over tomato. Top with fresh basil leaves. If desired, dash with about one tablespoon of olive oil.
+ Bake in the over for about 5-10 minutes (until cheese starts to melt and brown).
+ Remove from oven and top with freshly ground sea salt and pepper (this simple step adds a lot of taste!).


Happy cooking! Let me know if you test out any of your own delicious recipes!
