Squash Blossom Flatbread with Tiny Cherry Tomatoes & Goat Cheese

Here's a super easy squash blossom flatbread that is big on summer beauty and taste. I got a couple of bunches of squash blossoms at the Farmers' Market today. Super fragile, squash blossoms need to be used the day they are picked. Usually, stuffed with a cheesy filling, coated with a crust and fried, I wanted a lighter preparation. I created a super thin pizza flatbread with premade pizza dough and rolled it out to a super thin crust. Sauteed the squash blossoms very briefly in olive oil with garlic and salt to impart flavor. Topped the crust with pesto, squash blossoms, and tiny halved cherry tomatoes. Dusted with crumbled goat cheese. Baked at 400 for 9 minutes. A very tasty, light dish with a summer party feeling. Enjoy!
