Have you got on the Caprese bandwagon yet?  I don’t know about you, but whenever I go on Pinterest I feel like that is all I see.  Well, guess what.  Here’s another Caprese recipe for you to pin, and believe me, you will be glad you did!

This Caprese Flatbread has the perfect combination of fresh flavors from the basil, roasted tomato, and then topped off with a sweet Balsamic Reduction. All I can say is OH MY GOSH! Plus, it is super easy to make. I roasted the tomatoes in the afternoon because I knew I was going to be making it that night. Mike got home from work, we went to go look at land to purchase and came back. I assembled the flatbreads in like 5 minutes and 10 minutes later we had absolute deliciousness waiting for us. The only thing that would have made this meal even better would have been a glass of Malbec wine. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this unique flatbread as much as we did. Be sure to get the delicious Balsamic Reduction recipe I posted earlier this week, its what MAKES this dish!

To get started, preheat oven to 400º. Place 1 pint of grape tomatoes on a baking sheet and top with 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and salt.
