This flatbread recipe brings traditional pizza up a notch. The combination of ham and cheese is just as classic as the combination of ham and apples. Put them all together, throw in some red onions, a sprinkle of thyme, and we have a flatbread that you will want to make again and again.

The best part about this apple and ham flatbread is the crust. This is not a crust that you will bite into and immediately think it’s low-carb. It is thin and slightly crisp and tastes even better than the high carb stuff! It’s a flatbread you can serve to your friends and family and no one will guess it’s low-carb. This crust is also super versatile—Throw on your favorite low-carb toppings and make your own creation!

The flatbread is made with a base of almond flour and part-skim mozzarella cheese. The ingredients are simply heated over a double boiler until the cheese melts enough to hold everything together. You will need to work quickly once this dough is ready so have a rolling pin and a few pieces of parchment ready before you start heating the ingredients.

What’s the difference between flatbread and pizza? Technically flatbread is not supposed to be leavened. While the flatbread category can represent everything from crackers to pitas, I usually think of it as a thin pizza with a license to go creatively wild on the top. I love putting interesting flavor combinations together on a flatbread.

With this recipe there is no sauce. The cheesy gooey topping just melts together with the skinny apple slices providing just a bit of sweetness and crunch. While apples are generally a higher carb food, using a quarter of a small apple for the recipe controls the amount of carbs. Using a vegetable peeler to cut the apple makes paper thin slices and makes enough slices to spread over the entire flatbread.

This apple and ham flatbread recipe was a game changer for me. It cured those cravings for pizza and flatbreads. I hope it will for you too.
