Paleo breads are usually made from nut flours or coconut flour and have good portion of eggs in them so they are very moist (zuchinni-bread-coconut-flour). These are nice but discovering paleo flatbread was close to a miracle. This is something you can eat with lunch or make a sandwich with. And everybody that are on paleo know how hard it is to make a paleo sandwich. Usually you use some kind of mushrooms or paleo pancakes. But having flat bread makes it easier, faster and more like ordinary sandwich. This also makes a way for a nice paleo pizza because this flatbread is great as pizza dough.
The one I make is garlic bread because we adore garlic. Recipes on the web for flatbread usually ask for a pizza stone, but as we don't have one we don't use one. I really consider this unnecessary because simple baking pan placed at the bottom of the stove works well enough.
