Recipe: Veggie Supreme Pizza
I’m not one of those moms who likes to hide vegetables in my kids’ foods, but I’m certainly not above covering vegetables with cheese and serving them up as pizza! Veggie supreme pizza is not only a way to get kids (and grown-ups) to eat more vegetables — it’s also a thoughtful way to clear out the crisper drawer at the end of the week.

Recipe: Flat Bread with Dried Figs, Roquefort Cheese, and Rosemary
Last year I spent some time on Kea, a completely un-touristy Greek island off the coast of Athens. I went to spend a week cooking with Aglaia Kremezi, a thoughtful cook and talented teacher of Mediterranean cuisine. She had just finished the manuscript for a vegetarian cookbook and so many of the dishes I learned came from that body of work. My stained photocopied recipes and frayed notes from that trip have occupied a permanent place in my kitchen ever since that trip.

Recipe: Trader Joe’s Garlic Naan Flatbreads
If it were up to my husband, we’d eat pizza for dinner every single night. Yes, even though we have a standing Pizza Friday each week, it’s just not enough for him. So I’m never surprised when he suggests these flatbreads for dinner, seeing as they’re essentially pizza with a fancy name. I usually let it slide since they’re such a quick, satisfying meal and I will also happily eat them on repeat.

Recipe: Rustic Flatbread with Olive Oil and Sea Salt
Bread. One of the most fundamental yet soul satisfying foods known to man. Then why is it so darn intimidating? Bread baking isn’t something I do very often. It’s not for the want of it, honestly who wouldn’t want the warm scent of freshly-baked bread wafting through the house? It’s the time it takes, the kneading and proofing and, quite frankly, the fear of failure. Bread baking is kind of scary isn’t it?

Grill Recipe: Flatbread Stuffed with Curried Potatoes, Spinach, and Chickpeas
I’ll make no claims to authenticity with this recipe. It’s really more like an Indian-style calzone than the stuffed naan I’ve ordered in restaurants. But once those potatoes go all creamy in their spiced sauce and the flatbread bakes into a perfect toasty pocket on the grill, I’m pretty sure all those distinctions become moot.

Flatbread Recipe: Manakish Zaatar
I’ve shared how much more likely I am to eat breakfast when it’s a meze style – I just love being able to sample from a spread of olives, cheese, fresh vegetables, bread. Pita is nice, but when I have a little extra time, I make up a batch of manakish zaatar to eat over a few days. Topped with a fragrant, zingy blend of spices, these Lebanese flatbreads make lovely snacks and appetizers, too.

Appetizer Recipe: Flatbreads with Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions, and Basil
Here’s a recipe that can easily work both as a party-worthy appetizer or as a light supper, perhaps served with a salad dressed in a sharp, mustardy vinaigrette. The sweet caramelized onions, sharp goat cheese and pungent fresh basil work together beautifully, especially when supported by a crisp but chewy flatbread. Basil isn’t exactly in season right now but it’s pretty easy to find wherever you go.

Recipe: Socca Flatbread with Spring Pesto and Salad
Whether you choose the toppings or let your guests join in on the fun, pizzas and flatbreads are great crowd pleasers. I’m especially fond of socca, a chewy, crispy, gluten-free flatbread made from chickpea flour. As an appetizer or main course socca can be served plain or topped, like this one for spring. It features an herby, lemony pesto and fresh salad — plus it should even satisfy the worst dinner guest ever!
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Truffled Potato & Goat Cheese Flatbread
Pizza and flatbreads are in constant dinner rotation at my house. I’m always shocked at how quickly homemade dough comes together (not to mention that it freezes like a dream) so we always have an extra round or two on any given weeknight. And because you can justify putting practically anything on top, there is nothing you can’t throw in the mix — even potatoes and truffle oil! What is flatbread exactly?
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Sweet Potato, Ricotta & Arugula Flatbread
I’ll be honest: The appetizer is often the last thing I think about when planning a dinner party. But as someone who can never quite get dinner on the table when expected, I find an appetizer to be all-too-necessary for forestalling hunger pangs among my guests. This is where a simple yet elegant first course like this flatbread becomes extremely handy. I am a sweet potato fiend.

Recipe: Grape and Taleggio Flatbread
It’s amazing what you can do with a pound of pizza dough. Of course you can make a traditional pizza, but why not get a little more creative? This easy flatbread, which can do double duty as an appetizer or as a full meal, has a fun combination of grapes, Taleggio cheese, and walnuts — all on whatever pizza dough you like best. This easy flatbread starts with pizza dough, and the kind you choose is up to you.

How To Make 2-Ingredient Griddled Flatbreads
If you want a quick, fresh-off-the-griddle flatbread, it doesn’t get much easier than this dough that uses just two ingredients. In just about 30 minutes from start to finish, you’ll be tucking into tender flatbreads that can be eaten with dip, rolled up with your favorite fillings, or used to sop up something saucy that you’re serving for dinner. Oh, and guess what? There’s no stand mixer or special equipment required. Here’s how we do it.

Recipe: Basic Weeknight Flatbreads
Do you ever reach the end of the week and feel like there’s absolutely nothing in the fridge and takeout seems to be the only option? This flatbread is for you. Tender yet crisp, it can be turned into pizza, sandwiches, or even fill out a hearty cheese and snack board for Friday movie night. These flatbreads take about an hour and a half from start to finish, so start them before you grate the cheese, make a sauce, or just continue to stare into the barren fridge any longer.

These flatbreads are everything you want in a grown-up, restaurant-inspired pizza. A crisp crust cradles jammy figs, salty prosciutto, and peppery arugula while pops of gorgonzola add just enough funky tang.

Maybe it’s because the hard, flavorless mini bagels are replaced with extra-buttery, flaky puff pastry squares, which are topped with juicy fresh tomatoes and melted fresh mozzarella.

How To Make Gluten-Free Pizza Dough
The perfect pizza crust at home is chewy and crispy, with a slightly yeasty flavor. It should be easy enough to throw together on a Friday afternoon before friends come over. This is universally true for both traditional pizza and gluten-free pizza crust, despite the fact that each mixes and bakes up slightly different. Working with a readily available gluten-free flour blend, we set out to make an easy gluten-free pizza dough.

Family Recipe: Strawberry Dessert Pizza
My mother–in–law’s signature dessert is this colorful twist on an easy–to–assemble, perfectly light, fruit galette.

Recipe: Stovetop/Broiler Pizza with Asparagus, Shiitake and Fresh Mozzarella
While meandering the internets recently, I found several references to an odd but intriguing method of making pizza. The pizza is started on the stovetop using a very hot cast iron griddle or inverted skillet and then the whole thing is whisked to the broiler to finish cooking. It seemed worth trying so I gave it a whirl last night. Except for a few minor adjustments, I think it works! Read on for the full story and recipe.
