Roasted Garlic and Arugula Flatbread

Roasted Garlic and Arugula Flatbread

We are getting closer and closer to the big day! I have yet to figure out who I want to win this game. Part of me wants Baltimore to win because they are in the same conference as the Steelers. The other part of me hates Baltimore with a passion, so that just forces me into cheering for San Francisco. I think it will be a last minute decision. It will be fun to watch the Harbaugh brothers go at it though. That should be entertaining to say the least. Let’s get back to the point: food. I find flatbread to be one of my favorite appetizers out there. It’s really just a glorified, thin-crust pizza. It just sounds a lot cooler to say flatbread. At least I think so. Flatbreads are a very good idea when you plan on serving a lot of people; and this makes it a great idea for a game day get together. I was very excited to tackle this recipe and you should be too =).
