Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads Recipe
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
- 1 tablespoon minced chives
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
- 1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon parsley, chives, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper until blended.
- 2. Unroll pizza crust and cut in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion into a 12x6-in. rectangle; brush each side with oil. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove from the grill.
- 3. Spread grilled sides with cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese; top with tomatoes. Return to the grill. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted, rotating halfway through cooking to ensure an evenly browned crust. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.

Reviews for Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads
"A bit tricky to handle on the grill, but good flavor."
"This was great, but I did use basil instead of the parsley & thyme & I used chive & onion cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese."
"This was definitely a star at my table! I also had trouble with getting it on the grill without losing the shape."
"These were delicious! I left off the chives and added green pepper slices. It's not easy to transfer the dough to the grill and mine didn't look pretty, but the taste was wonderful! I would love to know a trick to keeping them uniform in size, transferring to the grill without them stretching and falling through the grates, and making them pretty so I can make them for company."
"This was SO good!! Def. making it again-SOON!"
"This was FANTASTIC! Super easy and delicious. I used fresh tomatoes from a farmer's market and it was so fresh and yummy!!"
