A quick and simple flatbread recipe is the perfect way to showcase your favorite Wisconsin Cheeses, a Wisconsin Gouda, Parmesan and Mozzarella. Watch our short video with Rachel from Elphantine and see the recipe brought to life. Limiting the topping additions to olive oil and herbs allows the cheese to take center stage, and using store-bought pizza dough significantly cuts down on prep time.
Or if you prefer to take your time in the kitchen, this is a great recipe to experiment with a variety of cheeses and herbs. The beauty of only using a select few ingredients is that one change will make a big impact in the way it tastes.
