Grilled Mediterranean Flatbread

What distinguishes a pizza from a flat bread?

The toppings? The shape of the crust? The accepted absence of cheese?

To me, they are one and the same. Flatbread just sounds fancy, the type of handheld meal you enjoy with a glass of wine, pizza a more casual reference and usually topped with piles of cheese.

In honor of National Vegan Pizza Day tomorrow (!) I present you with my Grilled Mediterranean Pizza flatbread. Proof that any holiday can be created and celebrated, who knew that National Vegan Pizza Day even existed? If you needed an excuse to enjoy this amazing meal, it’s here.

And what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t bring you a cheese-free favorite?  Smoky, grilled crust, then topped with fresh tomato salad and creamy hummus. So good, so fresh, so clean.
