Rosemary Flatbread Pizza with Brie, Grapes & Honey.

Okay...this is a different kind of recipe. really different. i loved it. it's just food.
Although Daniel liked it and ate nearly the entire pizza. But that is different. I've slowly been weaning him off of all canned and frozen foods. So he's starting to like my cooking preeetty well, in other words. Even things like this. If you have meat and potato kind of men -- save this one for a ladies night ;)

Whenever i try a new recipe, i always am asking him how he likes it -- on a scale of one to ten, what would make it better, etc...
The only thing we mutually agreed with this was that we needed to add mooooooore cheeeeese next time.

You can NEVER have too much cheese. Ever. Ever.
(as you can see...MORE CHEESE!!!)

ALSO: i never ever thought to bake grapes. i mean, we don't make grape pies, so theres gotta be a reason...right? Well, it turned out just fine. Similar to cherry if you ask me. Who knew.

You will need:
*1 envelope of yeast
*2 tablespoons sugar
*2 cups flour (plus a little more for rolling)
*3/4 cup warm water
*2 teaspoons rosemary
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/4 teaspoon pepper
*1 1/2 cups seedless grapes (i cut them in half. you can do them whole, too)
*3 ounces Brie cheese (i didn't have Brie, we used Gouda. it was yummy still. i think i'll try Brie next time. just for fun. oh, and more than 3 ounces please. i think i rolled out my flatbread too much, thats probably part of my deal too...)
*sea salt for sprinkling
*Chives (i didn't use these, but they were in the original recipe, so try them if you like!)
