Tzatziki Flatbread Pizza makes for a great lunch during hot summer days and it comes together in just 30 minutes.
This is our favorite lunch of late. Flatbread with tzatziki spread and cucumber slices.
Let's start with the flatbread. I have been meaning to share this recipe for so long now and it's finally happening. I think you guys will love it! Just like we do. It comes together in one bowl, there is no yeast involved and it bakes up perfectly to a crunchy base for the toppings. You know how some flatbread recipes will make cardboard-like slab that's hard as a rock? Well, not this one. It's perfect on the thickness and the crispiness. It is the best flatbread I've ever had! And because there is no yeast in the dough, there is no rising time. Which means you can really save time with this recipe!
My other secret to this flatbread is a 13" pizza stone. If you love pizza and flatbreads, you have to have it! No more soggy crusts! Just baked to perfection!
My Hubby and I love Greek food. Especially dishes that involve the famous tzatziki sauce. We could eat it with a spoon. I mixed cream cheese with Greek yogurt (you can use sour cream), mixed in some spices and spread it all over the baked flatbread.
Cucumber - the most refreshing of all veggies. And so perfect for summer dishes. I find myself adding it a lot to sandwiches for added crunch and flavor.
So we have crispy flatbread, creamy tzatziki spread and cool cucumber slices. Talk about perfect summer lunch!
Want to turn it all into a dinner? Add chopped tomatoes, torn lettuce leaves, chopped olives and chopped grilled chicken and you have one amazing pizza dinner! In a matter of 30 minutes you can have a fabulous lunch on the table. One minus to it all: it will disappear in 30 seconds. It is so good!!

The original recipe for the flatbread comes from Gourmet magazine. I saw someone (don't remember who) recommended adding egg yolk to the dough and I have to say I prefer it this way.
