Easy Caprese Flatbread Recipe | With Balsamic Glaze

Easy Caprese Flatbread Recipe

I’ve been super into Caprese as a whole lately.

Who doesn’t love fresh basil?

A drizzle of balsamic glaze?

Fresh tomatoes and high quality mozzarella?

Truth be told, I’ll eat this for breakfast just about every day.

Now that it’s springtime, the ingredients tend to be a lot more fresh and nice; you can source them from the farmer’s market rather than the grocery store.

It’s the perfect time of the year to start indulging in this perfect combination of fresh flavors.

Which is why this is also the perfect recipe for those easy weeknight dinners, especially now that springtime activities are starting to ramp back up again.

That’s right, caprese salad makes the perfect caprese pizza or Margherita pizza.

And whether you have a typical crispy flatbread, a naan flatbread, or traditional pizza dough, this easy caprese flatbread is a great way to spice up your main dish for the whole family.

Caprese Flatbread FAQs:

Q: I don’t like balsamic. What else could I drizzle on at the end?

A: Try this out with some pesto sauce, to make this a delicious caprese basil pesto flatbread!

Q: Is there any meat that I could add to this flatbread pizza?

A: Try adding some fresh prosciutto, or if you have a rotisserie chicken on hand, break up some pieces of that and put it on top. The chicken would also go great with a pesto coating, like we did in the video below:
