Appetizers/ Gluten Free/ Low Carb

Rosemary Garlic Flatbread

This low carb rosemary garlic flatbread is very easy to make and utterly delicious.  It makes a great side dish or a tasty appetiser.

Using the Fathead dough pizza base recipe, I made this garlic flatbread and added rosemary for extra flavour.  Plus, I love the smell of rosemary baking. 



You could make one large garlic flatbread with this recipe or two smaller ones as I did.  It felt less guilty munching a smaller flatbread rather than a large one.  Cut the garlic flatbread into slices too, to portion out your snacking needs!   It would make a great bread for a gathering.  Serve a couple of slices of this and once you have watched your friends scoff it down, inform them that this is the joy of low carb!


I added a touch of butter towards the end of the baking to keep the garlic flatbread moist and who doesn’t love melted butter on their flatbread?! 


The beauty of this recipe is its simplicity and is something I now bake when we are hungry and don’t want to wait ages.  The joy that is Fathead dough is that it is very filling.  I didn’t even want breakfast the next day!

    Second time I have made this, has anyone experimented with storage, either fridge or freezer?
