Making Cheesy vegetable grilled flatbread
  1. Take the loaf of bread. Slice it into 2 halves horizontally so that we have 2 long halves and each half has crust.
  2. Now oil the 2 halves of the loaves from the bottom crust side and top with olive oil. For crustier bread, oil the bottom part generously.
  3. Lay them on the baking sheet with crust side down.
  4. Now take the rested cooked vegetables and spread a layer of them on top of each bread.
  5. Sprinkle the top with cheese.
  6. Bake for about 8-10 minutes till the cheese turns slightly golden at the top.
  7. Take it out. Slice the bread either into thin slices or big slices and serve it hot.
