Avocado Hummus Flatbread

I ended up only working half a day yesterday, not what I was hoping for but hey I got the afternoon off. While sitting on the couch working on this I decided I wanted to try and make homemade flat bread. While Jimmy was at work I made the dough. I kind of made up my own recipe and it came out really good. I think I am going to try it without yeast next time though and see what happens. Avocados are on sale again this week so we had picked a few up the night before. I let Jimmy decide between avocado hummus or white bean hummus for the sauce. He chose avocado hummus. We picked out a bunch of vegetables from the fridge and I told him to leave the kitchen. He just messes everything up and picks at all my food lol
