Each flatbread recipe is as unique as is its baker. What goes inside, how it is baked, what garnish goes on top or middle or even on the side – wow, that becomes pretty complicated.
For many cultures, bread is an integral part that has to come out onto the table with each and every meal. What fascinates me is how diverse those bread options can be! Literally, hundreds of amazingly tasty and pretty healthy recipes can be made with flours of different kinds and toppings.

How to Make the Dough for Your Rosemary Flatbread
I have been enjoying Ninja Nutri Bowl for many of my recipe making ideas. This small machine is so robust and versatile, it takes in any drink, vegetable, fruit, dough and makes it into a super nutritious meal.
The dough mixes so well in this powerful machine. Here’s another look from inside-out.
Oil a bowl and place the flatbread dough in a warm place to rise. It takes about an hour to see a beautiful rising of this dough recipe. It is ready for the next step, the baking.
If you like breads and pizzas with a thin crust, feel free to divide the flatbread dough into two parts. Make two flatbreads instead of one. I used the entire dough amount for one rich and amazingly delicious meal.
This is what it looks like before you garnish the surface. It really yields to your poking with a finger, so soft and aromatic.
How to Make Thin Pear Slices for Your Flatbread Recipe
There’s no secret in the making of thin pear slices for your delectable flatbread. I use a vegetable mandoline slicer for all my slicing jobs in the kitchen. It is so easy and fast. The pear slices come out uniform and with the same thickness.
Without a doubt, the pears will bring a slightly sweet aroma and taste to the entire pear rosemary flatbread. So scrumptious to the last crumb!
If you love pears and are looking for something special for your guests, then I have another recipe to add to this one to your party.

The Best Cheese to Use In A Pear Rosemary Flatbread Recipe
On top of delicious pears goes the cheese. Use Gruyere cheese for a nutty, mellow flavor or crumbled Gorgonzola cheese for a creamy, earthy flavor. And for the fans of unique French Roquefort cheese, feel free to crumble pieces all over the dough. Your pear blue cheese rosemary flatbread will be a dream come true to your taste buds.
