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!!
