The mention of sweet and caramelly roasted garlic always grabs our attention. A full head of it is roasted in the oven so that it permeates every nook and cranny when spread over the bread. Paired with flavors inspired by the traditional Caprese salad made of tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil leaves, the flatbread is assembled on a slab of ciabatta bread for a more substantial dish. Placed under the broiler for just enough time to toast the bread and turn the mozzarella into gooey deliciousness, it’s a recipe that doesn’t require you to stand over a stove top for hours. The dish is finished with a drizzle of sweet balsamic vinegar making the flatbread complete, and with such simple flavors, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. After a long winter, Megan’s recipe is a welcome reminder that warm summer days lie in the near future. Make this for a Memorial Day appetizer or serve with a side salad as a light dinner.
