Great for multi-layered sandwiches, as it holds well without becoming soggy.
Bread is one of the world’s most ancient foods, and is enjoyed by cultures all over the world even today. It comes in different shapes and sizes, but the principle is the same — it is mainly composed of flour and baker’s yeast, a rising agent that is used to make bread fluffy when it is baked.

The flatbread, on the other hand, is a unique form of bread because it does not use the yeast, making the final product thin, similar to thin-crust pizza dough. A perfect example is the tortilla, which is primarily used in popular Mexican foods such as the quesadilla and the burrito.

 

But here’s a caveat: most breads and flatbreads today are made with wheat flour and similar ingredients, which are actually grains that are converted to sugar in your body, potentially wreaking havoc on your health if consumed in excess.

The great news is there are wheat flour alternatives that you can use to create delicious yet gluten-free baked goods without adding burden to your well-being, like this Golden Cauliflower Turmeric Flatbread recipe from Paleohacks. 

This recipe creates gluten-free flatbread using riced cauliflower instead of flour. The final product is crispy and firm, and is great for multi-layered sandwiches, as it holds well without becoming soggy, even with the many different fillings you use.
