Greek Flatbread Cheesy Pizzas

Greek flatbreads are a quick and easy way of making pizzas without the time restraints of building a pizza crust from scratch. Within 15 minutes, lunch or dinner is ready at the table. Who doesn’t like that? This is a very ‘cheesy’ recipe. It uses a total of 5 different kinds of cheeses. Along with the more common semi-hard cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese we have Feta Cheese, a brined curd white cheese from Greece made from a mixture of sheep and goat milk as well as Quesadilla cheese and Asadero cheeses.

The Spanish word for cheese is queso. Queso Quesadilla originated in the state of Sinaloa in Northwestern Mexico. The versatile, rich, creamy, smooth, semi-soft white cheese makes for delicious quesadillas and hence its name. It is also great for pizzas, queso fundido, chili cheese fries, baked potatoes, or for cheese-topped baked pasta dishes. Asadero in Spanish means baking, which indicates that Asadero was in fact made especially for cooking. Developed in Northern and Central Mexico, it is a creamy, smooth, mild tasting, velvety cheese, perfect for melting in roasted dishes or quesadillas. Lastly the use of Feta Cheese gives the dish that distinctive tangy and salty finish to the dish. The result of using different kinds of cheeses makes this a delicious mouth watering recipe that you will go back to again and again @sarchakra
