Flat Out flatbread,,,

I was pretty sure this couldn't be good. It's only one point for a flat bread it had 8 grams of fiber only 2.5 gm of fat. I was betting it would have the texture of saw dust. Nope. Sure it does have texture to it but it's not dry at all. I'd say the texture is between a corn and a flour tortilla.

Here's what I do with it that is really great.

Lay out one flat bread. Spread with 1 point of WW cream cheese spread or one (0.5 pts) laughing cow wedge make sure you get it all the way to the edges. Less in the middle is OK. Layer 2/3's of the bottom (short side) with a healthy portion of lettuce leaves a few cherry tomatoes or tomato slices and 1 point of you favorite lunch meat. Drizzle with a tiny bit of your favorite salad dressing maybe a teaspoon or 2 max. Roll it up from the filled end and seal the edges and sides using the cheese as glue to hold it together and keep the tomatoes from falling out. You have a good sized roll up sandwich that tastes great.

My other favorite things to do with them is a snack pizza. Now this is actually more like a flavored cracker but has a great pizza taste.

Lay a flat bread out flat on a baking pan. Pop it in the oven to warm it a bit. Put a very thin layer of tomato sauce spread evenly over the flat bread. I use my home made, but any good quality tomato sauce or pizza sauce would work. (1-2 tablespoons) Sprinkle on some dried oregano. Use a sprinkle of reduced fat Mozzarella ( maybe 1/4 cup or so) and a light dusting of Parmesan cheese to top. Put back in the over till the cheese melts and the flat bread is slightly crispy. 3 to 4 points depending on how much cheese/what kind of cheese you use. Over all I decided It was well worth buying the big multi pack at Costco and DD loves it too.
