Enjoy what the season’s produce has to offer and make this tasty Grilled Veggie Pesto Flatbread!
Have you been loving all the fresh produce you can pick from your garden or get at your local farmer’s market? This time of year is abundant with such a variety of good-for-you veggies! A great way to enjoy them is to grill them up and making flatbread. The recipe comes together quickly and is perfect to have as a meal or appetizer when guests come over.
You can make this your own by using ingredients you might have on hand. Want to go greek? Add an olive tapenade and feta cheese instead of the pesto and mozzarella – there is no wrong way to enjoy this flatbread!
As I mentioned buying store made pesto is perfectly fine but if you would like to make your own, you might recall I shared a pesto recipe here a couple of months ago. For this recipe, I made mine from scratch.
