Summer Vegetable Flatbread

Summer Vegetable Flatbread

I have a keen ability to over-buy produce this time of year. I go to the market with a specific list but usually come home with way more than what I intended. Which means, a lot of meals that get made are catch-all, use the straggler vegetables. One of my favorite recipes that takes this approach are these vegetarian tacos but this vegetable flatbread is a close second. I especially love this flatbread because thanks to the cooking time, all the vegetables can be tossed on raw and will soften/cook while the cheese is melting. This recipe is also great for adding any and all herbs you might have growing in your garden!

Step by Step

Vegetable Flatbread


In leaving the title of this recipe very generic, there is much room for riffing. Ideally almost any item you could buy from a market would work on this pizza. Eggplant, greens, or even a few slices of peaches are welcome. I say the more vegetables, the better.

Grill It: Don’t want to turn on your oven? These flatbreads grill up nice and easy. If you’re using traditional pizza crust, I recommend grilling the crust on both sides before adding the toppings.

Squash: Need one more way to cook with all that zucchini you have? Dice it and toss in with the with corn mixture!

Cheese: I’m a bit boring when it comes to flatbread cheese in that it’s almost always just mozzarella but, smoked cheese, feta, or even goat cheese would be perfectly welcome.
