The random Tomato and Greek Yogurt Flatbread.

When it’s 9:30 at night, you’re at the grocery store, you’re hungry, don’t tend to follow recipes, and love anything that combines carbs and sauce, there are really quite a few things you can pile together and end up with something great … which is what I typically end up doing when cooking.

Friday night I made one such pile. I’m not really sure what to call it (feel free to make name suggestions), but it was delicious!

Here’s what I did:

Bought a pack of flatbreads found in the deli area of the grocery store on the low shelves that often are in front of the deli cases. The ones I used (pictured below) come in a pack of three and two will take up the full area of a large cookie sheet when baking. They make for a cracker-like crust when baked.

I put down a layer of aluminum foil on the cookie sheet (makes for easy clean up), laid two flatbreads side-by-side, and then spread a thin layer of non-fat Greek yogurt on the flatbread. Once that was evenly spread, I took the can of tomato paste and spread it on top of the yogurt. I love tomato paste so I used a full one of those tiny cans across both flatbreads.

Then I added sliced Roma tomatoes and topped it off with some fresh chopped-up basil from my pallet garden. Then it was set for baking. 425 for about 10-12 minutes got it right where I liked them … crispy, but not dried out and crunchy.

It was the first I’d attempted this combination for a pizza and I loved it!

If you’re interested in making, here’s the list of the ingredients (or as Teresa on Real Housewives of New Jersey would say, “ingredients’es”) I ended up using by the time I was done baking:

  • One pack of flatbreads. I used One Republic Artisan-Style flatbreads.
  • About 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt (more or less depending on your taste)
  • 1 tiny can tomato paste
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • Fresh basil

Give it a shot. Again, I tend to cook random things based on what I have at home and rarely is something I attempt the same two times in a row. If you have any ideas for what alterations to try the next time I welcome the suggestions.

Personally, I think on the next attempt I may add some crumbled goat cheese. Mmmm.
