    This is a quick and very flavorful flatbread. This bread is crisp on the edges and moist inside. I used it as a base for avocado salad and pizzas. The topping for flatbread are endless. If you are looking for a flatbread recipe, this one's a keeper.  -  28 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Was good I had cooked up sausage, tomatoes and some red pepper and spread it over finished bread still in skillet. Beat some eggs poured it over and through it back in oven. Topped with some spinach and goats cheese when eggs almost done. Great breakfast pizza as flat bread stayed crisp.  -  02 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
