Flatbreads are a delicious and quick alternative to homemade pizzas when cooking solo. We love how versatile they are. From cooking for one to appetizers for 10, flatbreads are a quick and affordable meal that will have your friends begging for your secret. Boursin is a tasty substitute to traditional tomato sauces and helps reduce time and effort. We opted for a lighter version to help cut down on fat and calories. Keep this meal even more slim by saving half for lunch the next day and serving each half with a veggie-packed salad. Flatbreads will keep for up to three days in the fridge.
