I love this recipe, as you do not need to knead the dough or thaw puff pastry in advance. The most difficult part is to make the filling. However, the process itself is pretty basic: combine apple with sugar in the skillet and stew the mixture until liquid evaporates. That is all! You can use the recipe to make desserts with not only apple but also other fresh fruits and berries. Do not forget to add any type of nuts for crunchiness and cinnamon for aroma. If you are contemplating whether you can use flatbread or not for the recipe. Do not hesitate; it fits perfectly. Only make sure to use the plain version with no additional flavors.

Here are some easy savory recipes with thin flatbread:
