We prefer to buy pizza dough that’s already been rolled out, rather than the ball of dough. If you’ve made the call to go with a pre-made dough why not go all in on ease of preparation? That means all you have to do is unroll the dough onto a baking sheet and pierce the top with a fork to let the steam escape. At this point you’re going to let the dough rest for about ten minutes, you can take this time to halve you grapes and prepare the rosemary. Fresh rosemary will really make all the difference in this recipe, but you can use dried in a pinch.

Once the dough has rested you’ll coat it will a thin layer of olive oil and top it with the rest of your ingredients. We’ve kept it pretty simple, but you’re welcome to get inventive with other additions. Roasted walnuts would be tasty, as would a drizzle of honey after baking. Whether you serve it as an appetizer or as a side for soup or salad, you really can’t go wrong with this easy flatbread!
