Goat Cheese & Olive Flatbread

I’ve recently found that on our Friday night pizza nights, I’m stuck with some leftover dough. I’ve tried to create some fun desserts like this and that, but now I’ve just been putting the extra dough in a zip lock and putting it in the fridge. You know what I’ve discovered? A day or two later, the dough looses some yeast power and makes great flat bread that gets really crispy! It’s awesome!

Here is our latest creation:
left over pizza dough
olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 Tbsp. goat cheese
1/4 c. kalamata olives, chopped
fresh basil leaves, torn (about 5 large leaves)
freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

Roll out your dough, brush with olive oil and spread the crushed garlic over it.  Crumble the goat cheese on the pizza, followed by the olives, basil and parmesan cheese.  Finish with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and bake at 450 for about 10 minutes until brown and crispy.  Great as a snack or appetizer!
