Olive and Cheese Flatbread

Although it’s not a pizza, this flatbread shares lots of similarities with it. First, the dough is basically the same both in ingredients and its technique. As for the ingredients, you can add whatever you prefer. To get things going, you can try this recipe - we've added some olives in the dough, topped it with 2 types of cheese, a bit of red onion and a touch of tomato sauce. Nothing complicated, we’re keeping things simple today.

12 olives

Take it out and pour the heavy cream. Reduce the heat and add the mozzarella and Cheddar. Stir until the mixture is smooth and thick, and bring it to a fondue-like consistency. Season with salt and let it cool.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
