Italian flatbread with pear, walnut and gorgonzola

The combination of gorgonzola, pears and walnuts is usually found in a salad but works brilliantly on this molten cheesy bread. It’s great hot but equally good for lunchboxes the day after.

Vegetarian BBQ flatbreads

Load shop-bought flatbreads with courgette, peas, asparagus and ricotta to make an exciting veggie BBQ option. Some crispy chorizo, pancetta or even a few slithers of smoked salmon would work well, too.

Naan bread

These homemade naans take a little effort but the results make it worth it – the naans should be nicely golden and blistered on the outside, and soft and fluffy inside.

Homemade flatbread with dukkah goat's cheese

This super simple flatbread recipe has only two ingredients. We love it smeared with dukkah-crusted goat's cheese, but it also makes a great side dish for curries, tagines and stews, and a good base for flatbread pizzas.
