One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to experiment and create new pizza and flatbread recipes. I really think anything on a pizza crust, flatbread or naan bread is perfection. And this Goat Cheese, Tomato & Basil Flatbread recipe is as close as you can get!
For this recipe, I used naan bread which is a cross between a pizza crust and flatbread. Naan is an Indian style flatbread that is baked in an oven. I like naan better than flatbread because it’s a little thicker but has a different flavor than a pizza crust. If you haven’t tried it yet, you have to treat yourself. And it’s much easier to find in the bakery section of your grocery store.
This recipe starts with a great tomato! I used Roma tomatoes for this recipe. One is just enough for one piece of naan bread.
Before I put on the toppings, I coated the naan with olive oil and a little sea salt. I put it in the oven for about 5-10 minutes at 325 degrees to heat up.
This allows the olive oil to season the bread before all the other goodies go on top.
I like the keep the top simple. Spread on the goat cheese, add the tomatoes and sprinkle some chopped basil on top. You don’t even need to put it back in the oven.
Serve it just like this. It’s fresh, simple and you can really enjoy all of the flavors individually. The salt on the naan gives it any additional seasoning you will need.
