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.

Today, let’s attempt this thin crust Pear Rosemary Flatbread that looks like a pizza, yet tastes so different.
All Ingredients Are in the Ninja Nutri Bowl Ready To Be Mixed
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. Of course with my help form outside!
The dough mixes so well in this powerful machine. Here’s another look from inside-out.
Oil A Bowl and Place the Flatbread Dough for Rising
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.
Fans of Thin-Crusted Flatbread
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 set 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.
Garnish the Flatbread Dough with Pear Slices
I use a vegetable slicer for all my slicing jobs. It is so easy and fast. The pear slices come out uniform and with the same depth.
The pears would bring a slightly sweet aroma to the entire pear rosemary flatbread. Delectable to the last crumb!
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.
