Adjust rack to top position and middle positions and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. Cut flatbreads into quarters; cut each quarter into four squares. TIP: Stack flatbreads for quicker cutting! In a large bowl, toss flatbread pieces with 4 TBSP olive oil; season generously with salt and pepper. Divide between 2 baking sheets; toast on top and middle racks until browned, 6-10 minutes. TIP: Watch carefully to avoid burning.
While crackers toast, combine jam, 1 TBSP water, ½ tsp sugar, and a pinch of salt in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave 30-45 seconds. Stir to combine and set aside.
In a second small microwave-safe bowl, combine 4 TBSP butter with a pinch of salt and pepper and as much truffle zest as you like (we used ½ tsp). Cover with plastic wrap and microwave until melted, 30-45 seconds. Once crackers are toasted, immediately brush tops with melted truffle butter. Set aside to cool.
Thinly slice Midnight Moon cheese into wedges; fan out on one corner of a large board or platter. Drain burrata and place in a small bowl. Using a table knife, quarter the burrata halfway through (leaving the bottom intact), then drizzle with balsamic glaze. Place burrata on opposite corner. Place cherry sauce in center of board. Arrange half the salami and half the coppa in a single overlapping layer next to Midnight Moon cheese. Arrange remaining salami and remaining coppa next to burrata. (TIP: For bonus presentation points, arrange salami and coppa in two arcs.) Fold each piece of prosciutto into a loose bundle and place next to salami and coppa. Halve, core, and slice apple. Fill remaining gaps on board with grapes, apple slices, and truffle crackers. Serve.
