Vegetarian Food Recipe for Amazing Flatbreads

Flatbread is a great vegetarian food recipe because not only is it easy to make, but it’s extremely versatile as well. If you add several toppings and serve with a bowl of homemade soup or a nice salad, it can make a great accompaniment to a meal, or you can pair it with a glass of wine and serve it as an hors d’oeuvre at a party.

Whatever you decide to put on top of your flatbread, the basic idea is the same for this vegetarian food recipe. Buy a pre-made pizza dough, and roll it out until it’s about one-quarter inch thin and is rectangular in size. You can cut into smaller pieces either before or after you bake it, depending on how many different kinds of flatbread you want to make. Place the dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Brush the dough with some olive oil and then add your ingredients. Bake until the flatbread is golden brown.

In terms of what you can put on top of your flatbread, the choices are seemingly endless. One great option is to sprinkle the flatbread with some garlic powder or fresh minced garlic, grated parmesan cheese, and shredded mozzarella cheese or pieces of buffalo mozzarella. Another choice is to create a flatbread topped with garlic pesto. Blend together basil, parmesan cheese, olive oil, and garlic cloves, and spread over the top of the flatbread. Or, you can top the dough with some chopped marinated artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and pizzas of buffalo mozzarella. Another option is adding some grilled, caramelized onions, some crumbled goat cheese, and sprinkling with some fresh thyme. Or, you can slice some heirloom tomatoes and pair with fresh mozzarella cheese, and arugula. Baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and chopped garlic would also make an amazing choice for a flatbread.

If you want to get really creative, you can make a Thai flatbread, with Thai peanut sauce, shredded carrots, chopped scallions, and bean sprouts, sprinkled with just a little bit of shredded mozzarella cheese. Or, you can make a flatbread that has a sweet barbecue sauce, red onions, and mozzarella cheese.

Whatever you decide on, when you are searching for a great vegetarian food recipe, you cannot go wrong by trying to create an amazing flatbread. And, if you’re hosting a more informal party, you can even place out a large number of toppings and let people create their own vegetarian flatbreads according to their own tastes. Otherwise, if you’re serving as an appetizer or hors d’oeuvre make sure there are a range of flavors available and that the flatbreads are cut into smaller, one- or two-bite pieces so people can eat them more easily and have more room to try the different flatbreads that you experimented with.
