Pear and brie flatbread Add to ...

This well-balanced flatbread, made with salty prosciutto, sweet pear and creamy brie, comes together in minutes and works well as a side or as an appetizer alongside a bubbly cocktail.

Make-ahead tip: Pick your basil ahead of time. The rest of this comes together so quickly that there’s little point in working ahead.
