Artichoke & Garlic Flatbread

I am always in search of ways to eat more garlic. It's very, very high up on my list of favourite flavours.

When I walked by the antipasto station at my grocery store the other day, I saw a big pile of fresh marinated artichokes and sundried tomatoes, I immediately scooped up around a cup of each knowing that flatbread was the destination.

My recipe was made on Piedina-style flatbread, but this can work on any sort of flatbread/dough you'd like.
