What You'll Need to Make Puff Pastry Garlic Flatbread - 2 Ways

Puff pastry flatbread ingredients

Here is the complete list of all ingredients needed for this recipe. For precise measurements, please look at the recipe card.

  • Puff pastry: I loooove puff pastry! In this recipe, I used store-bought pastry. Pepperidge Farm puff pastry is my favorite brand, and I use it for many recipes, sweet or sour.
  • Unsalted butter: We are using butter as a base. We'll need room temperature butter, so leave it on the counter while preparing other ingredients.
  • Minced garlic: Besides the flavor, garlic will add a fantastic smell to the flatbread.
  • Dried parsley and basil leaves: Adding flavor.
  • Grated mozzarella cheese: Mozzarella is one of my favorite cheeses.
  • Grated parmesan cheese: Another great cheese option for this flatbread recipe.
  • Fresh Bella mushrooms: Adding texture and flavor. In combination with cheese, it's so yummy.
  • Salt and pepper: Adding flavor.
  • Frozen spinach: Spinach, packed with vitamins and minerals, is an excellent option for this flatbread recipe.
  • Artichoke hearts: They are nutritious, providing an excellent source of fiber, folate, and vitamins, such as vitamin K, vitamin C, etc. Artichokes are a great source of antioxidants, which may help with many health risks. Also, they taste delicious.
  • Green onions: Adding texture and flavor. Also, green onions are rich in vitamins.
  • Feta cheese: Besides the great taste, feta cheese contains friendly bacteria that are known to promote immune and digestive health, in addition to their anti-inflammatory effects.

How to Make Puff Pastry Garlic Flatbread - 2 Ways

I love both of these flatbread options, but if you prefer one over the other, you can definitely make only that option or double the recipe and use both sheets of pastry for that option as well. First, thaw two pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 minutes or until easy to handle. Take the frozen spinach and leave it at room temperature. While you are waiting for the pastry to thaw, prepare all other ingredients. Take the butter from the fridge and leave it on the counter to soften. Mince the garlic, wash and cut mushrooms into thin pieces. Drain and chop the artichoke hearts, then squeeze them dry. Chop the green onions. 

To prepare cheesy mushroom flatbread, start mixing the butter and minced garlic. Add mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Add dry parsley, basil, salt, and pepper and mix until combined. Set aside. Take one of the pastry sheets and cut it in half (lengthwise). Create a border around the edge of the pastry. You will do that by scoring the pastry with a knife about 1/2 inch from the edge of the pastry. Score the pastry halfway through the thickness of the pastry. Spread half of the butter mixture over each piece of pastry on the inside of the scored border.

To prepare the spinach artichoke flatbread, start mixing the butter and minced garlic. Set aside.Repeat the process for the second pastry sheet. Cut into two pieces, score the edges, and put them on a baking pan. Using a cheesecloth, or any cloth napkin, squeeze as much water as possible from both the spinach and chopped artichokes (I used two separate napkins). This process is crucial because the pastry will be soggy if you skip this step. In a medium-sized bowl, combine spinach, artichokes, green onions, feta cheese, salt, and pepper. Spread half of the butter mixture over each piece of pastry on the inside of the scored border. Then, spread half of the spinach artichoke mixture over each piece of pastry.

Bake all four pieces of pastry together for 10 minutes, then raise the temperature to 400 Fahrenheits while keeping the flatbreads in the oven. Bake for another 10 minutes. Then broil for 2 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on the pastry because it can burn quickly. Remove from the oven and cut into smaller pieces. Transfer them to the wire rack and let cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!
