Ingredients You’ll Need
- Cherry tomatoes
- Fresh herbs
- Naan flatbread
- Olive oil
- Burrata cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Balsamic glaze
Choosing Your Tomatoes
We recommend cherry or grape tomatoes for this recipe. Their small size is ideal for roasting.
How to Make Bursting Tomatoes
Bursting tomatoes are seriously so easy to make! Combine cherry tomatoes and garlic cloves in a small baking dish and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Roast the tomatoes at 400F 25-30 minutes until the potatoes are softened and bursting. Be aware, this bake time may vary a bit depending on if you use grape or cherry tomatoes. Check them around the 25 minute mark.
Once the tomatoes are done, remove the garlic cloves and finely mince. Then add garlic back to tomatoes with fresh herbs.
Tips for Perfect Flatbread
- Preheat oven – you want your oven fully preheated and hot at 400F. If you are using a pizza stone, make sure you preheat oven with the stone in it.
- Bake flatbread at a high temp – these flatbreads will only take around 15 minutes of cooking at a hot temp of 400F.
- Top flatbreads with cheese during last 5 minutes of baking – tear the burrata into bite-sized pieces and arrange around the flatbread along with fresh Parmesan. Adding the cheese during the last 5 minutes of baking helps keep the burrata from drying out.
Pizza Stone vs. Baking Sheet
We highly recommend a pizza stone for baking these flatbreads if you have one available. Pizza stones hold a lot of heat which is ideal for cooking flatbreads and pizzas because the high level of heat helps achieve a crisp, chewy crust.
As mentioned briefly above, make sure you preheat your pizza stone in the oven.
This recipe will still work great if you choose to go the baking sheet route. The crust might not be quite as crispy but it will still be delicious.
Once flatbreads are done, remove them from the oven and immediately top fresh herbs and a few drizzles of balsamic glaze.
Wait a few minutes for the flatbread to cool slightly, then use a pizza wheel to slice each flatbread into 4 wedges.
These flatbreads are just pure summer, y’all. The juicy bursting cherry tomatoes with the fresh herbs, tender baby spinach, and creamy burrata cheese just tastes like ALL the best parts of summer!
We love serving this flatbread as an app, but it can also definitely stand alone as a main dish!
Best paired with a glass of white wine and a comfy chair outside on the patio, trust me.
