The difference between a flatbread and a pizza has haunted philosophers, theologians, and amateur theorists for centuries… we're talking libraries full of theory, chalkboards with nothing but equations, and at least twelve TED talks to date. But we've come up with a foolproof method to tell which is which. Are you ready? If it has apples, it’s a flatbread. Apples don't go on pizza! They do give this flatbread a darn near perfect satisfying crunch. With two cheeses, onions, walnuts, and arugula, this flatbread eschews the academia and gets right down to the flavor.
