What the heck's the difference between a flatbread and a pizza? We explored the different types of flatbread on menus in San Francisco and tried to deduce what makes them unique.
'flatbread' on Serious Eats
Daily Slice gives a quick snapshot each weekday of a different slice or pie that the folks at the Serious Eats empire have enjoyed lately. [Photographs: David Kover] Slow Club's grilled flatbread* varies by season and by meal. Sometimes you get sausage, other times apples and sage. When I visited for brunch, it was sheep milk mozzarella, bacon, shaved brussel sprouts, caramelized onion, and a baked egg....
"Sort of an open-faced, fancy-pants quesadilla," is the note I typed into my phone after eating one of Universal Cafe's grilled flatbreads, and it might as well serve as my whole review. It's pretty hard to think of their toppings as resting on anything other than a tortilla. Though, please understand, I do like quesadillas.
