Friday night is almost always pizza night in our house and last week was no exception. We had only one kid home for dinner and I had a fresh flatbread dough in the fridge, so I was ready to go.
On our half of the pizza I went with my obsession, sun dried tomato pesto (seriously the best and I put it on everything!!), fresh sliced tomatoes and fresh mozzarella balls. On the teen half I used regular pizza sauce, turkey pepperoni and shredded mozzarella cheese…the go-to.
Truth is, I was a little skeptical of the flatbread dough I’d never used before. I found it one day while looking for something very unrelated, like butter, and decided I would pick it up and give it a try. It turned out so well that I never took any photos after it came out of the oven! I had a handful of fresh basil waiting to grace the top of the pizza, but nope. We started with a “taste”and didn’t stop until it was gone! 🙂
This flatbread pizza was super fast to throw together, which makes everyone happy because we were eating within 20 minutes. Seriously, it took longer to heat the oven than to make this pizza. It had a great light crunch from the crispy flatbread crust and the toppings were bright and fresh and delicious (even without the basil)!
Pizza combinations are endless, isn’t that awesome?! I love that in one crust I can make two totally different kinds of pizza. Sometimes I feel like a diner cook my kids are using to get whatever they want to eat when they want it. Sometimes I give in and make two completely different meals in one night (I’m not perfect and I just want them to eat good food!). And sometimes I do something really smart and use one dough to make two kinds of flatbread that makes everyone happy 🙂
