Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads

This is a combination of grilled pizza and a cheesy flatbread recipe I discovered years ago. It's a great appetizer or main dish. —Tina Repak Mirilovich, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Grill: 5 min.
  • Makes
    2 flatbreads (12 servings each)


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced


  • In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon parsley, chives, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper until blended.
  • Unroll pizza crust and cut in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion into a 12x6-in. rectangle; brush each side with oil. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove from the grill.
  • Spread grilled sides with cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese; top with tomatoes. Return to the grill. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted, rotating halfway through cooking to ensure an evenly browned crust. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.

    This is so fast and easy to put together! The only changes I made was to use dried chives instead of fresh, and Greek Yogurt cream cheese instead of regular. I cut the dough into 4 portions to make it a little more manageable. They grilled up beautifully, crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside. I loved the herbed cheese mixture, and I'll be making more of that up and stashing it in the fridge! It will be perfect with celery or crackers.

    A bit tricky to handle on the grill, but good flavor.

    This was great, but I did use basil instead of the parsley & thyme & I used chive & onion cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese.

    This was definitely a star at my table! I also had trouble with getting it on the grill without losing the shape.

    These were delicious! I left off the chives and added green pepper slices. It's not easy to transfer the dough to the grill and mine didn't look pretty, but the taste was wonderful! I would love to know a trick to keeping them uniform in size, transferring to the grill without them stretching and falling through the grates, and making them pretty so I can make them for company.
