Pizza and FlatBread... what's the difference??

A poll in SLICE today brought to the forefront a question I have had for a long time... What's the real difference between a Pizza and a FlatBread??

Most flatbread recipes I see around start with pizza dough... Most flatbreads I see do not include cheese necesarily, but then again there are cheese-less pizzas too... So is there really a difference??

What makes a pizza a pizza and a flatbread a flatbread?? Is this just semantics?? Or a way to bring more haute-ness and charge more for something we all know and love???

I tried to look for an answer among Kenji's 200+ question/answer article, but I couldn't find anything there. Share in your POV on this... Gracias.
