Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads Recipe

Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads Recipe

This is a combination of grilled pizza and a cheesy flatbread recipe I discovered years ago. It's a great appetizer or main dish. —Tina Repak Mirilovich, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Grill: 5 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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. Yield: 2 flatbreads (12 servings each).
