Since being single, one of the biggest challenges I've faced is cooking for one. It's definitely changed the way I cook and shop for food. I feel like I am just now - over a year later - getting the hang of it.
I've come to really love meals that come together quickly and can be made as one serving just as easily as two or four servings. This flatbread is just that. Cooking just for you? Make one. Cooking for more? No problem! Make as many as you need with barely anymore effort.
I've been pretty into Italian flavors lately. If I had to guess why I'd say it's because I've [finally] been watching The Sopranos and damn does all that pasta and 'red gravy' look good. Perfect timing I suppose, since tomatoes are at their peak currently! I got my hands on some beautiful san marzano's at this morning's farmers market. If you can't find san marzano's don't stress it. Plum tomatoes in general will work for this!
As for living that single life? It's got its ups and downs, but when I sit down with my tomato zucchini flatbread for one with a nice glass of wine and I'm watching The Sopranos on the first cool Sunday of the season...it feels pretty damn good.

I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
