Caprese Inspired Flatbread Sandwich recipe

Caprese Inspired Flatbread Sandwich

We make our own simple basil pesto using walnuts, parmesan cheese, olive oil, and just a little bit of garlic. This nutrient dense sandwich is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants and can be assembled in a short time using frozen flatbreads. Our flatbread recipe with flaxseed and white whole-wheat flour is the perfect choice for this caprese inspired sandwich. Top it with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze for a delicious, quick and easy meal.


  • Our flatbread can be made in advance and stored in the freezer. When ready to use, thaw them on the countertop or individually in the microwave for 8 to 10 seconds.
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese has a soft, creamy texture. Use it in pastas, sandwiches, salads, and antipasto platters.
