Crispy Thin Breads made with Tomatoes, Cheese and Herbs

A basket filled with crispy thin breads made with tomatoes, cheese and herbs are a nice substitute instead of putting bread on the table.  Crunchy thin breads or flat-breads topped with herbs, tomatoes and grated Parmesan cheese, baked to a nice crispy texture.

  “If at first you don’t succeed , try and try again”…. came to my mind when my idea for making a  pizza became a flop!  The other day I tried to make a pizza without any sauce or mozzarella,  not by CHOICE ! ….you see,  but because I didn’t have any at that moment.  And since I had the pizza dough already to go….I felt compelled to bake a pizza with something I could  find. 
So as I attempted to make the pizza, I screwed up somewhere – almost burning the whole thing….. But something interesting happened, they turned into these tasty thin Flat-breads. It was purely an accident.  BUT a very good one!  They tasted like the crispy parmesan cheese thin breads, only with roasted cherry tomatoes on top which added a nice touch. They were delicious enough to serve with dinner.
You can also serve these thin breads (or you can call them flat-breads,) with some good wine and assorted soft cheeses, and you have a very nice appetizer!  Enjoy!
