What Bread To Use For Flatbread
For this recipe, I used naan as my flatbread base, but you could also try using pita bread instead. I find these pre-made flatbreads the quickest and easiest to use.
If you’re feeling up to it, you could even make your own flatbread from scratch! Similarly, you could use a store-bought pizza dough (just roll it a little thinner and in an oval shape).
Tips For Making This Flatbread Recipe
- I found the easiest way to spread the goat cheese onto the flatbread was to use my fingers to physically press it down, as opposed to using a knife.
- Be sure to leave about a 1/2-inch edge along the outside of the flatbread to create a crust. This will make it easier and less messy to serve and hold!
- Keep an eye on the flatbread when it’s in the oven to avoid any burning.
- Add the arugula on top of the flatbread AFTER you take it out of the oven, not before placing it in.
