“Man cannot live on pizza alone” said no man, ever, in the course of history. Truly, how many of you have someone in their lives who could eat pizza for every meal? I can count several major, heavy duty pizza lovers in mine, without even trying all that hard. This recipe goes out to all you pizza lovers out there, as well as to those who cook for them, wondering how they can change it up every now and then with some flatbread, fresh vegetables, and healthier ingredients.
Part of our meatless recipe selection, this flatbread panini has all the flavors under the Mediterranean sun: Kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and spinach all melted into a Foldit flatbread with mozzarella cheese. If blindfolded, your pizza lover will think you had ordered their favorite slice and folded it in half for easier eating. Then they will thank you, hopefully, for feeding them a meal the ingredients in which have been known to promote greater longevity in people for thousands of years.
In all reality, they will eat it, enjoying every salty, crispy bite, and secretly wish for another slice of whatever-it-is that you were kind enough to make them.

P.S: this flatbread goes great with beer, just like pizza.
