Flatbread with Fresh Herbs

One of my favorite ways to use herbs is in bread.  Not only does this Cheesy Flatbread with Fresh Herbs taste yummy but it smells heavenly as it is baking!

Cheesy Flatbread with Fresh Herbs


Last week at the herb class I taught at my home I shared a couple of different breads made with herbs.

The first one was the No Knead Bread I have shared here on the blog before.  The only thing you need to turn it into Herb No Knead Bread is 1 Tbsp of chopped fresh herbs.  I think I used a combination of rosemary, thyme and oregano but I don’t really remember.  Experiment with your favorite herbs and see what you come up with!

The second herb bread I shared at the class was Flatbread with Fresh Herbs.   I do not remember where this recipe came from but it’s a good one.

(Do you see a trend here …no memory!)

It is simple to prepare.  I used pizza dough I purchased at the grocery store.  Here in Portland you can get it at Trader Joes or Winco or you can make your own from scratch.

Divide the dough into two pieces and roll each piece into a long rectangle (try to get them as close to the same size as possible).  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Place basil leaves on dough and then sprinkle with rosemary.

Place second rectangle over the herbs.  Flatten a little with a rolling pin or a glass.  Edges do not need to be  sealed.

Herb Bread (2)

Brush egg mixture over the top.

    I’ve gotten out of the habit of baking a bread/roll for dinner – something I used to do several times a week! This motivates me to get back to it – looks delicious, fast and easy. Thank you!
