This flatbread combines seasonal ingredients with minimal effort. The sweetness of the apple pairs wonderfully with the creaminess of the cheese and the crunchiness of the pecans. Bake on a pizza stone for an even crispier base and serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy this as a light lunch, or serve as an appetizer at your next party.
