Easy Farmers Market Caprese Flatbread Recipe Is Ready in 20 Minutes by Jan Mostrom

Easy Farmers Market Caprese Flatbread Recipe Is Ready in 20 Minutes

I've been sharing quite a few recipes with end-of-summer tomatoes that are so ripe and delicious. I bought another case of vine-ripened tomatoes at my farmers market and was looking for yet another way to make something new and easy. This flatbread, or pizza if you'd like, is so easy and will adapt to any ingredients you have around the house.

Mine was simple with olive oil, salt, fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, cheese and crushed red pepper flakes. The great thing about this flatbread is once you have your "canvas" (your crust) you decide what to put on it! I'll give you a few ideas of our favorites in Recipe Notes below.

This flatbread can be served in so many ways. Serve this fresh tomato and basil flatbread for lunchdinner with a salad or vegetable or as an appetizer

Recipe Notes

  • Use any toppings you would like or have in your fridge. You could use spinach, feta and olives for a Greek flatbread. Red onions and sweet peppers are delicious as well. Like a red sauce? Just use up your extra marinara you have it in the fridge and coat the crust after the pre-bake before your toppings. The possibilities are endless! Think about what's in season or in your fridge.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight food container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. On a baking sheet, pour a bit of olive oil and spread it around with your hands or a paper towel. Remove any excess and then place dough on the pan. With your clean hands spread the dough around the pan making it as thin as possible (if you have too much oil this will be harder). Lightly brush or spread olive oil on the top of the crust and place in a preheated 425-degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes to pre-bake before toppings.
  2. While the crust cooks prepare your toppings (see Recipe Notes for ideas). When crust is light brown remove from oven. Brush another small amount of olive oil and sprinkle with some salt. Add your toppings. In my case that was tomatoes and basil and a bit more salt on top. Sprinkle with as much cheese as you like and crushed red pepper flakes, if desired.
  3. Place back in oven for 8 to 10 minutes until cheese is melted and crust is light brown. Remove and enjoy warm!

Flatbread is even better than pizza because it’s often thinner and somehow seems healthier to me. This looks good.

So pretty and so delicious. I miss those end-of-summer tomatoes already and can't wait til they're back next year!
