  2. Spread flatbread with sauce and top with freshly grated mozzarella and cherry tomatoes.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to pick up some balsamic glaze at the grocery store (you can find it near the balsamic vinegar and comes in a few tasty varieties) or make your own.

For homemade balsamic glaze, mix 1 cup of your favorite balsamic vinegar with 1/4 cup brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer until reduced by half, approx. 20 minutes. Sauce will thicken a bit more as it cools. Cool and store in the fridge for all your drizzling needs!
