Roasted pepper flatbread

This is I believe my favorite pizza-like dish to date. It may be just due to the fact that I really enjoy roasted red peppers. Since this particular try, I've also made this with home-made precooked pizza dough, and it was equally tasty. I prepared a newer version of this with goat cheese spread onto the flatbread, topped with peppers and thin-sliced onions, and some shredded jalapeno jack cheese. This was amazing, particularly when served up with julienned fresh basil on top.

1 medium flatbread (about 10 by 12 inches)
1 large roasted red pepper
1 small yellow onion
1-2 garlic cloves
2 tsp olive oil
3 tbsp Feta cheese
2 oz mozzarella
pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 450F. Mince garlic. Slice onion. Peel and slice roasted pepper. Shred cheddar.

Brush flatbread with olive oil. Distribute minced garlic on it evenly. Sprinkle with oregano and pepper flakes.

Add sliced onions and roasted pepper slices. Crumble Feta on top. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
Bake directly on oven rack until crust is crispy and cheese is melted and slightly browned. Cool on a cookie rack and serve.
