Garlic Flatbread

Crispy flatbread full of garlic, butter and cheese. Could there be anything better?

I am back. But just barely. 

I have some confessions.  Or really just one. 

This was Easter dinner.  Yep, and I didn't even make it. This is courtesy of Mr. J.  

We did the whole brunch thing earlier in the day and then were too exhausted for dinner. Did you know the exhaustion leads to intense cravings for bread. Cookies too but for now we are talking about bread. Flatbread to be exact. 

A few weeks ago, right after Olivia was born we had pizza dough that was getting beyond the point of use. It had been hanging out in the fridge for a couple days.  With a newborn hopes of making homemade pizza sometimes fall away to the ease of ordering pizza. Thus a we needed something to make with the dough that was not pizza.  

Mr. J decided to whip up some garlic bread to go with said takeout pizza.  This flatbread was born. That night I think we ate more of the garlic flatbread than the pizza.  I now request it regularly. And sometimes yes it is all we have for dinner. I generously said this would feed four. If you are truly having it as bread portion it could stretch to 6. Or if you are like us this feeds 2.
