Perfect for a quick vegetarian dinner or an easy party appetizer, this Caprese flatbread takes just minutes to throw together and includes a crispy, flatbread crust, homemade spinach pesto, lots of fresh mozzarella cheese, ripe grape tomatoes and a tangy balsamic glaze along with fresh basil!
You can use my quick and easy flatbread recipe or store-bought naan for this recipe. My flatbread recipe only takes 5 minutes to throw together AND requires no yeast but if you’re in a pinch, my favorite naan is the Stonefire brand. Either will work great for this recipe!
You could also use storebought pizza dough for the base of this recipe or either of my easy pizza dough recipes – No Knead Pizza Dough or Quick Pizza Dough. Just make sure that you par-bake the crust before topping it so that it doesn’t get too soggy!
If you can’t find balsamic glaze at the store, you can make your own! All you have to do to make balsamic glaze/reduction is to place balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and simmer it over medium heat until it reduces and gets thick. Check out this Roasted Tomato & Burrata Recipe to see how easy it is to make your own reduction! If you’d prefer to buy it, this is my favorite brand of store-bought balsamic glaze.
This Caprese flatbread is really good with sun-dried tomatoes if you can’t get your hands on any fresh tomatoes! I recommend the oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes. And I also recommend drizzling the flatbread with a little of that delicious sun-dried tomato oil also.
