I created these pizzas a few years ago while we were living in Atlanta, when we had a bunch of extra Flatout Flatbread lying around. I wanted to do something fun with them and this seemed like a great option. I found a very good, fast and easy pizza sauce recipe from America’s Test Kitchen (see recipe at the bottom), that compliments these pizzas very well. Once the sauce is made and the toppings are prepared, these pizza are very easy and fun to put together. The amount of sauce, cheese, and toppings added is left up to the pizza creator. Be sure to have extra toppings and cheese, because sometimes one pizza per person just isn’t enough. These make great leftovers, and are fun to make with kids.
Makes: About 6 to 8 flatbread pizzas Time: 40 minutes
- 6 to 8 Flatout Flatbreads
- Pizza sauce (see recipe below)
- Shredded mozzarella (12 ounces) and grated Parmesan (6 ounces) (mixed together)
- 1/2 purple or white onion, thinly sliced or chopped
- 1 green pepper, thinly sliced or chopped
- 15 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
- Any other desired pizza toppings
- Red pepper flakes (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place two flatbreads on baking sheet and spread with sauce (about 1/4 cup per pizza), cheese mixture (about 1/2 cup per pizza), and add desired toppings. (Be careful not to add too much sauce, or pizzas will be soggy.)
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is bubbling. (Add red pepper flakes to taste for a little kick to the pizza)
Quick Pizza Sauce
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- Salt and pepper
- Heat the oil and garlic in a medium saucepan over medium heat until the garlic is sizzling, about 1 1/2 minutes.
- Stir in the tomatoes and simmer until the sauce is thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
This sauce can be cooled and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days. This recipe makes more sauce than needed for the pizzas, but can be frozen or used for other things.
