Chicken Florentine Flatbread

So D thinks it is funny, but I refer to anything that is pizza-like but does not have red sauce as shit-on-bread (white pizza would be in this category).  You can have good shit-on-bread, but regardless it is shit-on-bread.

So he was a little surprised when I told him I had pinned this recipe. He asked if it should have red sauce.  We looked at it and decided it needed garlic.

It was really good, although really high in calories.  It reminded me of Phyllo Pizza with Feta, Basil, and Tomatoes but without the PITA of using Phyllo.

We would have again, but we would make the following changes.
1. Make it 3 servings
2. Use 1.25 C of Italian Blend Cheese or use 1 Cup of it and 1/4C of Parm or Feta
3. Use 2 TBSP of butter and add some garlic powder to it (still keep the garlic cloves).
