Caprese Flatbread Pizza


Every time I think caprese it reminds me of summer. Mainly because of the gorgeous fresh tomatoes that go along with it. This Caprese Flatbread has the perfect combination of fresh summer plum tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese and beautiful green basil. Being that it is summer, to feed my pizza addiction I opted for a much much lighter version. This whole meal is done in 15 minutes! It is a perfect weeknight dish. Make it for lunch, dinner or just a snack. It is also an all year round treat. It doesn't just have to be summer. You could also double and triple it to serve to a crowd. 
Ingredients
2 flat breads or 2 large tortillas cut into rectangles

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 cup shredded fresh mozzarella cheese

2 teaspoons parmesan cheese

6 fresh basil leaves, torn into pieces

Directions

Heat your oven to 450ºF.
Place each flat bread or tortilla on baking sheet; brush with oil. Add the tomatoes evenly to each one and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Next add the cheeses.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the flat bread is crisp and cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with basil.
Serve immediately.
