Caprese Flatbread (450 Cal)

450 Calories

I love caprese salads, in any of their multiple forms, from flat on a plate, stacked, pierced on a skewer, or even part of a cold pasta. But this version blends the trendy flatbread with the basic ingredients, all baked slightly into a tasty dish suitable for the main course. In fact, it should be, because at 450 calories it leaves no room for anything else if you’re on the Dad’s Diet (copyright 2021)

By utilizing gluten-free (lower calories) flatbread purchased in the store, and using boccincini medallions (instead of larger pieces), then we can add the all-important olive oil for flavour. Though olive oil gets a bad rap on diets due to its high caloric content, it is in actual fact a great weight loss ingredient.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings: 2 flatbreads)

Boccincini medallions (8)
Flatbread (gluten free is lower in calories and sweeter)
2 large tomatoes, sliced into 4
8 olives, sliced in half
fresh basil leaves (enough to cover the bread)
1 tsp balsamic glaze
1 tbsp virgin olive oil
1 tbsp butter


  1. brush butter over flatbread lightly
  2. place basil leaves on flatbread to cover
  3. add 4 tomato slices per flatbread
  4. add 4 medallions per flatbread
  5. place olives strategically on four corners
  6. using the nozzle on the glaze bottle, run patterns across the whole flatbread
  7. pour oil over whole flatbread, making sure you have enough to do the other one
  8. bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes (just to warm and start the boccincini melting)
  9. Serve
