A Flatbread Pizza Recipe You’ll Love
This flatbread with goat cheese is a quick and easy appetizer recipe to make and perfect to serve any time of year.
The naan bread, two cheeses, caramelized onions, honey, plump blueberries, and fresh herbs provide a blend of flavors that you’ll crave.
If you’re a fan of white pizza, then this is a must-try. This goat cheese flatbread is just as delicious as it looks.
The naan bread is fluffy and becomes a little crispy from baking. It makes the perfect base for a spread of cream cheese and goat cheese, sweet onions, and fresh thyme.
Topped with fresh blueberries, a drizzle of honey, and a little peppery arugula, this easy appetizer idea is a true delight.
It’s a great balance of salty and sweet which I absolutely love and you will too.
- Naan bread
- Olive oil
- Cream cheese
- Honey goat cheese
- Fresh thyme
- Fresh blueberries
Naan bread is a soft and chewy type of bread with little air pockets inside. It is usually available in the grocery store. But if you can’t find it, feel free to use any flatbread or even pizza dough.
The honey goat cheese adds a creamy sweet-tangy zing which pulls all the sweet and salty flavors together. For better texture, I recommend getting the logs and crumbling them by yourself rather than pre-crumbled ones. If you can’t find the honey goat cheese you can use regular goat cheese. You will still get the honey flavor from the drizzle at the end of the baking time.
The blueberries surprisingly add a pop of freshness. Look for ripe blueberries that have a deep blue skin with a gray dusting. Blueberries with red or green spots are unripe and tart. And try to pick out any blueberries that are too soft.

Slice the onion into thin strips. Add to a skillet with the oil and cook over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes until the onions turn translucent. Add the salt and a tablespoon of honey and stir. Remove from heat.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread a layer of cream cheese over each of the flatbreads and place on a baking sheet. Divide the onions evenly between each of the flatbreads.
Sprinkle a few thyme leaves over each flatbread. Place the blueberries spaced out on each piece as desired. Crumble the goat cheese into bite-size pieces and sprinkle around each bread.
Place in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the blueberries are ready to burst. Remove from heat and add a small amount of arugula to each bread and a light drizzle of honey to top it off.
- Toppings – You can add cherry tomatoes, fresh mint leaves, fig, cranberries, and pomegranate for more flavor and color.
- Cheese – Top it with melty mozzarella cheese and other types of cheese if you’re a cheese lover!
- Spicy – Serve chili flakes in a shaker and let your guests put them on the flatbread according to their preference.
- Add meat – Add meat like prosciutto, salami or ham. It will likely crisp up in the oven and add even more of a salty element to the flatbread.
- Use the freshest bread you can find. You do not want to use stale bread as it will get even drying and harder during baking.
- Let the cream cheese sit at room temperature before using so that it’s more spreadable.
- Do not put too many toppings on the flatbread. Otherwise, they will fall off. It’s fine if you are making the flatbread for dinner but if you cut them into appetizer-sized pieces, the toppings will slide off easier.
