Mediterranean flatbread is similar to flatbread pizza in that it is topped with a variety of ingredients such as tomatoes, roasted peppers, and olives.
Thin slices of prosciutto or other cured meat can be added as well. It's a delicious appetizer or light lunch that's simple, quick, and easy to make!
El Salvadoran stuffed corn cakes are known as pupusas. Cornmeal flour or rice flour is mixed with water to create a corn masa mixture that is used to make this delicious brad. Refried beans, shredded pork, and cheese are all common fillings.
On top of all that cheesiness, they're garnished with a pickled cabbage mixture that adds an acidic, tart note to counteract the richness.
4. Garlic Pizza
Calling all garlic lovers! This pizza features a heavy helping of roasted garlic and ooey, gooey melted cheese.
But wait, it gets better. This pizza features not 1 but 4 different cheeses. It's simple, but so indulgent, and guaranteed to be a hit!
This type of bread is made by flattening the dough and frying it in oil, shortening, or lard before serving it.
Frybread can be eaten plain or with a variety of toppings, including honey, jam, and meat, and is typically made with basic ingredients like wheat flour, sugar, salt, and fat. It's also possible to make taco-like meals out of frybread.

No matter how often you indulge in them, you will never get tired of the taste of gyro. This specialty sandwich is the perfect way to satisfy your cravings for Mediterranean food.
It is both impressive and tasty while also being simple enough to whip up on the fly. And there are countless ways to customize a gyro to your personal preferences or dietary restrictions.
9. Garlic Herb Focaccia Bread
Some people refer to focaccia as "pizza bianca," which translates to "white pizza" because of its similarity to pizza in style and texture.
As one of the most versatile bread, focaccia can be used for anything from a side dish to sandwich bread. It is a simple dish that is often garnished with herbs and salt.
Homemade naan is quick and easy to make, and it always tastes delicious. The soft, buttery texture and flavor of this side dish make it a family favorite.
While traditional naan-making methods involve baking in those scalding hot Tandoor ovens, you can make your own naan at home with just a grill or skillet and still get a delicious naan!
A pita is a form of flatbread that is soft and slightly chewy and often has a pocket inside. The bread can either be eaten as is or dipped in olive oil or hummus, depending on your preference.
Alternatively, the pocket can be stuffed with a variety of fillings and served toasted or baked as a sandwich.

Yes, it's as good as it sounds. The texture is a combination of a crepe and French toast.
Essentially, you use your thin French toast to make delicious pinwheels filled with your favorite French toast toppings. I often opt for freshly sliced strawberries and some sweetened cream cheese.
Khachapuri is a Georgian dish that consists of stuffed bread with cheese. The majority of khachapuris are made by encasing a large amount of cheese in a round dough and baking it until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
The bread is then stuffed in the center with a mixture of cheese, eggs, and other ingredients. It's an absolutely divine and filling dish that everyone will enjoy.
16. Smoked Salmon Breakfast Flatbread
Forget a bagel, smoked salmon tastes even better when topping some fluffy flatbread! You could add a smear of cream cheese, or forgo it completely.
Some everything bagel seasoning and thinly sliced red onion will give you all the flavor you need! It makes a wonderful breakfast because it's just the right amount of food to keep you full until lunch.
You didn't think we'd get all the way through this without mentioning flatbrod or lefse? My Norwegian Grandmas would disown me if they'd been left out! 😉
This easy 4-5 ingredient flatbread is a staple bread that can be topped with both sweet and savory toppings (like lefse). Fresh herbs, cheese, and salty little fish are divine toppings!

The best thing about tortilla pizzas is that they are relatively guilt-free. Make your own tortillas, or use your favorite brand. That way you can choose if you need keto or low-carb options!
20. Margherita Sheet Pan Pizza
The simplicity of this pizza is the best part. No need to toss your dough in the air or spend valuable time shaping it.
With this pizza, you can form the dough to a sheet pan and call it a day. It has no shortage of flavor with it's tangy sauce, fresh basil, and huge chunks of mozzarella.
21. Mexican Street Corn Flatbread
If you love elotes like I love elotes, this one's for you. Mexican street corn is jam packed with flavor on its own, and it's made even better by putting it on top a crisp flatbread.
Creamy mayo and sour cream sauce is complimented by tangy lime and chipotle chili powder. The sweetness of the corn and mild flavor of the bread ties it all together perfectly.
22. Rosemary Sea Salt Flatbread
Complexity isn't always best. This simple rosemary sea salt flatbread makes a great starter for any meal.
