thinking about making something w/ leftover pizza dough to go with dinner. Thinking a garlic Parmesan flat bread. Thoughts?

I realize it's too late for this to be useful to you, but maybe someone else will like the suggestion... I used to make pizza once a week and the dough recipe made enough for leftovers, so I would either do the focaccia like the others have already suggested, rolled flat, brushed with plenty of olive oil, and sprinkled with sea salt, pepper, and lots of rosemary, or I would do one extra step and make lovely breadsticks. If you flop the dough out into a rough rectangle, you can slice it with a pizza cutter and transfer the ropes immediately to a well oiled baking sheet. I made a tutorial for it here:

I agree w/ Panfusine and would suggest a foccaccia. My favorite is topped with caramelized onions cooked in a generous amount of olive oil and lots of fresh rosemary.

a foccaccia perhaps, with a a basting oil of garlic, rosemary, cracked pepper & EVOO?,

Chuck Muer Restaurants makes a great bread with a pizza like dough..the secret is to process 1/2 cup olive oil, a tablespoon of Italian seasoning, a little salt and a clove (or 2) of garlic in a mini processor. After the first rise brush this on the loaf.. let rise again and bake,,delicious!

You could roll it very flat. Dock it with a fork and put on a an inverted sheet pan and cut to crackers squares. Season with the cheese and some salt and oil.
It stores well in airtight containers and can be used for dips etc.

I didn't have enough rom to fully explain what I was looking for. We are having a pasta dish and I was thinking in termsof a garlic bread or something...

Depends on what you are making for dinner. You could make calzones if you aren't sick of pizza yet. You could use the dough as a topping for chicken pot pie instead of pie crust. Flatbread is perfectly benign option that can go with many things: salad, chicken. On that line of thinking, you could make flatbread and make them small like tortillas and use them for fajitas or tacos. Have fun!
