I secretly love sun-dried tomatoes. Just a few of them can give a nice punch of flavor. My husband, however, does not secretly dislike them! Opening up a jar of sun-dried tomatoes, therefore, doesn’t happen nearly enough in my life. But a sun-dried tomato flatbread reheats beautifully, makes my soul happy these days, and doesn’t require sharing!
Sun-Dried Tomato Flatbread
If you’re among the lucky ones who’s found yeast at the market these days (I snagged the mini packs last time I was out), then you follow the directions for homemade pizza dough in this BBQ thai chicken pizza recipe.
If you don’t have yeast, don’t fret. This pizza dough without yeast recipe works just fine and requires baking powder instead!
And if we’re being really honest, you could do this combo on a tortilla for a quesadilla or on toast and you’d be so happy!!
I do really like the addition of fresh dill here. Fresh herbs are always a light addition that can really take a simple dish to the next level (and don’t forget you can easily dry fresh herbs if you have extras to avoid any food waste).
If you’re looking for sun-dried tomatoes, you’ll find them one of two ways – dried in a bag or dried and soaking in delectable olive oil in a jar (usually with pickles and condiments). This recipe calls for the latter. And in my humble experience, the oil soaked ones are the ones to get.
If you’re feeling fancy (or daydreaming like me these days), you can make your own sun-dried tomatoes and then can them in oil.
Otherwise, I really just like the Bella Sun Luci brand – not because of the name…well, ok, yes, because of the name, but also their products are really quite delicious!
The recipe here calls for the traditional whole milk mozzarella because sometimes the classic option is the best option. But now I’m not thinking of other delicious cheeses you could do.
I bet a ricotta (like we used on these giant meatballs) would be good. And what about some shredded havarti, gruyere, or fontina?
But honestly, anything with “cheese” in the name would probably be good. I have that much faith in the sun-dried tomatoes, the flatbread setup in general, and your skills!

I love sun-dried tomatoes, but I find I use a jar for one recipe and the rest to easily go to waste. So here are a few recipes that help finish out the jar with ease!

- Extra virgin olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves minced
