This was so good!  It was a great summer dinner - a little sweet, but a nice change of pace.  I added apple chicken sausage from Trader Joes; I cut it into bite size pieces and browned them first.  It made it more of a meal (at least to the males in the house.).  I couldn't quite fit all of the apple or sausage onto the flatbread, so I put the extras in bowls and also put them on the table.  Everyone munched on those as well.  Very pretty presentation as well.
