herbed flatbread pizza

August 14, 2012


Between the Spice Girls' reunion performance at the closing Olympic ceremony, the beginning of Shark Week and this new gluten-free flatbread recipe, I gotta tell you...I'm living a good life. AMERICUUUUH.





The flatbread alone is almost scary it's so good.  I'm already dreaming up ideas for future toppings, but  I'm not that sure that this one could be topped.  I added a layer of my favorite hummus and topped it with a mix of summer veggies (including roasted hatch chili peppers!) and sweet mango.

Colors of the world
Spice up your life
Every boy and every girl
Spice up your life
People of the world
Spice up your life, aahh

Those words are like the flowers Walt Whitman puts in my ears.  

Don't pretend you don't know every single word in that song, too.  No shame here, sisterpants.
