Secret: I LOVE American Flatbread.
I went to the University of Vermont for my undergrad degree and was introduced to the wood-fire over goodness. Cheese and herb is there number one seller and it is so delicious!They use simple, fresh ingredients for their flatbreads. They even sell them in the frozen section of your supermarket. They are usually $7.99-$9.99 for a box but I get them on sale from time to time for only $5.
I know you are paying for quality but sometimes a mom has to improvise. We are working on budgeting more with our groceries now that Samantha is really eating “people food.” Let me tell you, this chick can eat, hence why I decided to try and make a “copy-cat” American Flatbread cheese & herb flatbread that was Sammy approved and we could all share!Cheese & Herb Flatbread [American Flatbread Copy-Cat]*
- 1 Thin Pizza Crust w/ Herbs (I use Rustic Crust Italian Herb, but use whatever you’d like!)
- 1/2 Cup of Italian Shredded Cheese Blend (I used this one)
- 2 tsps of Garlic Olive Oil (or mix a bit of garlic powder/ crushed garlic into olive oil)
- 1/4 tsp of Garlic Powder
- 1/4 tsp of Dried Parsley Flakes OR 1-2 Tbsps of Fresh, Chopped Parlsey
Preheat oven to temperature set for flatbread crust you have chosen. Take olive oil and spread it over the crust. Sprinkle on cheese, garlic and parsley. Cook as directed on package, then eat once done! If you don’t want to buy a cheese blend, you can also just use mozzarella and Asiago cheese instead – which is on my to do list for next timeIf you are a fan of white pizza/ non-red sauce, try it out and let me know what you think! Hope y’all enjoy this recipe… happy eating. 😀
