Ricotta Flat Breads

I challenged myself to make flat breads using ricotta. The nice part of this recipe is that I used my own homemade fresh ricotta. These Ricotta Flat Breads puffed up so nicely and were soft and tasty. They provided the perfect wrap for my tomato and pesto salad.

I am not a huge fan of having accounts with numerous retailers. But for trade reference purposes it is necessary. One of the accounts I currently have I opened when I wanted to buy Dave an espresso machine. I could not afford to pay for it in one go and as this retailer offers a 6 month interest free account it made sense to do it that way. Dave was well pleased with his gift and I have made good use of the account. Mostly I use it just to keep my credit rating in good stead. But sometimes I make use of the interest free option and buy big-ticket items. If this occurs I make sure to pay my account off timeously. In December I could not wait for the statement and so went into the store to find out how much I owed.

I was told that my installment was higher than the amount due. This is the third time I have had this happen to me. The first time I paid the amount due, but as it was not calculated correctly I ended up paying too little. I was charged interest on the entire amount which I was not impressed about. The second time it happened I paid the entire installment and so ended up in credit. I decided that this time I would do the same. Personally, I would rather be in credit and stay in their good books than have interest charged. I also stayed in Dave’s good books when I made these ricotta flat breads. They were waiting for him when he got home from working on the race car. He was late and I knew he would be ready for food as soon as he walked through the door.

      1. Hi

        That was one easy delicious recipe using leftover ricotta, will be forever a repeat in my house! Thanks so much for this!

  1. Yum! It’s been a while since I started looking for the perfect flatbread recipe and I finally found one, Tandy! Thanks a bunch for such an easy and appetizing recipe. 😉

    They would be super soft. What an awesome touch. I wouldn’t have thought of doing this.

  3. I love the idea of using ricotta for flat bread! This would definitely get me in Tom’s good graces. Crazy story about your expresso machine. We are big savers here….so we pay for cash for everything. It simplifies life! We just bought a new car and have been saving for 10 years to pay for it, but at least we owe no interest. We just can live the “American Dream” and be in debt like everyone else. But we are happy =)

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
