Homemade Flatbread Pizza

Homemade Flatbread Pizza

Once we perfected the Flatbread Crackers, the natural progression was to make Homemade Flatbread Pizza.  Talk about the perfect Friday night, everyone top their own, grab a beer and get happy food.

It’s inventory week at my office and considering I only got home from work 45 minutes ago, we topped our flatbread pizzas with simple ingredients straight from the fridge.  For the crust, we made the parmesan garlic & herb version and prebaked them for 4 minutes.  We then topped them with sliced tomato, salami, mozzarella cheese, spinach and a drizzle of olive oil.   Another 6-8 minutes in the oven until cheese was melted and bubbly.

While I love the Homemade Pizza Dough we make in our bread machine, sometimes you neither have the time nor energy to wait the 2+ hours for it to be ready.  These yummy Homemade Flatbread Pizzas were firmly in my grasp in about 20 minutes.  Can’t beat that!!
