Grilled Caprese Flatbread

Prep Time: 15 min.
Bake Time: 1-2 min.
Servings: 8
Difficulty: Easy

You don’t have to heat up your kitchen to enjoy a delicious summer appetizer with these grilled flatbreads.


8 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, dough thawed to room temperature
3 Tbsps olive oil, a little extra for drizzling
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, cut into quarters
8 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced or torn into pieces
salt and pepper to taste


Combine oil and minced garlic. Allow to sit for 15 minutes so flavors marinate. Slice cheese, quarter the cherry tomatoes and chiffonade the basil.

Roll each dinner roll into a 5-inch circle or oval on a counter sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Brush with garlic oil.

Heat grill or grill pan to medium heat, then brush with olive oil. Grill 30-45 seconds on each side or until baked through. Repeat with remaining rolls.

Top flatbreads with slices of cheese, tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil if desired.

    I like the resources you are offering to consumers!

    My question is about making pita…would the dough need to proof after being rolled out, in order to achieve the “Puffiness” associated with pita?

      Thank you for your question! After rolling out the dough and shaping it like you want, then let it raise (the dough should have 2 raises in it) to have that puffiness as you said. Exactly right!

        To clarify, should I thaw the rolls at room temp, Roll them into desired shaPe, allow to rise once, roll again, then allow to rise a second time before proceeding? Thank You!

    Why is the nutritional information not listed on these recipes when consumers are more conscious of calories, fats, carbs, sodium when choosing recipes. Restaurants and fast food places are required to post but printed materials seldom include such HEALTH FULL info. Come on and help us out please .

      Let me pass your comments along and see if this is something we would and should be doing. Our packaging does contain nutritional information. But let me talk to those who come up with the recipes. Thanks for your suggestion!
