Heirloom Tomato Flatbread with Honey Goat Cheese and Basil

Say helllllllllllllllllllo to summer with this gorgeous heirloom tomato flatbread. The crispy Flatout pizza crust is the perfect backdrop for the sweet, roasted heirloom tomatoes, honey goat cheese, and basil. 

Heirloom tomatoes fascinate me. 

All those interesting colors. 

And weird shapes. 

Each a work of art --- but even more beautiful when put together side by side.

I've said it before... but... I love using the Flatout artisan thin pizza crusts because:

     * They get nice and crispy like a thin crust should.

     * They are only 120 calories for a whole piece.

     * They are so quick --- the pizza (or flatbread) only has to bake for 10 minutes!

Babycakes never used to like tomatoes (though ketchup is her friend). My hubby doesn't love them either... so those two peas in a pod would encourage each other in their dislike of tomatoes and refuse to eat them. Until one day, the grown-up (dear hubby) changed his tune about tomatoes, thanks to the organic heirloom grape tomatoes I brought home, and said how good they really were. Now they both happily eat them, and Babycakes even requests them specifically... which goes to show, it really does matter what the parents are eating.

But, back to this flatbread...

This would be such an easy way to ease someone into tomatoes --- because the sweet and savory combo here is so satisfying and delish! The honey goat cheese is mixed with basil and lemon olive oil for a burst of citrus. The heirloom tomatoes are thinly sliced and layered on top. And then after baking, you add a bit of fresh basil and a drizzle o' honey. And pairing it with a glass of pinot gris (for the grown-ups) doesn't hurt either.

Other ways to use the Flatout thin crusts: for breakfast pizza with fried eggs or for double cheesy flatbread.
