Grilled flatbread makes a great foundation for flavors

It’s like magic! Flatbread is so versatile you can use it as a wrap right out of the package or you can slather a light coat of olive oil on it so when you grill it you end up with a cross between a thin crispy wood-fired pizza crust and a crunchy cracker as a base for any flavor profile your little heart desires. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

One of our family favorites is a super easy Italian combination…It’s crispy, it’s charred, it’s salty, it’s slightly sweet and it’s totally fresh and fabulous.

Camp cooking tip: These are awesome little tools that are efficient and clean. Use a Rapidfire Chimney Starter to get your charcoal going quickly without the need for lighter fluid.

Start your grill to medium heat

Whichever heat source you are using, get it heating up. These things cook so fast that you don’t need a huge grill to serve your camping crowd. I like to use my mini charcoal grill if I don’t already have a campfire going at the time I am ready to make these little lovelies.
Char the tomatoes

Toss the tomatoes in a little olive oil then grill till charred. Be careful to avoid over-doing the olive oil so you don’t have flare-ups from oil dripping in to the campfire or charcoal coals. Remove from heat and let cool.

8 cherry tomatoes
Olive oil to lightly coat (about 1 t should be enough)

Camp cooking tip: Skip the headache that comes with the dreaded runaway tomatoes rolling into the fire if your grill grate is too large…use a grill basket to char your veggies for this grilled flatbread recipe.

Grill the flatbread

Coat both sides of the flatbread with a little olive oil. Grill on one side and when slightly toasted, flip to cook the second side. As soon as you flip it, add the mozzarella, prosciutto and crush the tomatoes in your fingers over the flatbread so they burst and the juices top the bread. Remove from heat as soon as the bread gets toasted which will be very quick.

1 piece flatbread
Olive oil to lightly coat (about 1 t should be enough)
2 slices prosciutto, chopped in bite-sized pieces
2 slices (about ½ inch thick) fresh mozzarella
