How do you eat flatbread? Tasty toppings

After you have baked the small flatbreads in the pan, you can use them as you like. They taste good on their own, with soup, with yogurt dip or garlic marinade.

But you can also easily fill flatbread. Let your imagination run wild: How about a fresh tomato and cucumber salsa, for example. Or top the flatbreads like a pizza and gratinate them again briefly in the oven. Ingredients such as zucchini, tomatoes, hot salami, olives, mushrooms, etc. are suitable for this.

Or try our eggplant topping:
