    I just made this recipe to see if I would like to take it to our Memorial Day bbq and it's so easy & good. I picked a basil leaf, a few lemon thyme leaves and some chives from the garden and snipped them as small as I could. I didn't have a sheet large enough to make the bread as flat as it needed to be, so I baked in batches. On the last batch, when it was done, I topped it with thinly sliced tomatoes and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese, then broiled on low for 3 minutes. Amazing.

    This was great! I was worries by the picture that it would be too floury and dry, but it was fin. I did make it slightly differently. I put it in fourths and didn't press it as thin, but it was great! I cut in strips and we diiped it in our soup. Pretty yummy :)

    I thought this recipe would end up being more like the traditional flatbread or Naan bread but its more like a softer cracker consistency. It wasn't what I planned but I was still satisfied with the results so I am made a ton to eat instead of chips and crackers. Very yummy and you can change the herbs to get different tastes.
