Fabulous Food Friday – Flatbread Pizza.

Hello Fabulous Friday Friends!

Here’s a quick and easy low cal flatbread pizza dish. This thing is great for everyone – single, in a hurry, can’t cook or to make a fun, easy, delish dish with the kids.

You need:

  • 1 flatbread
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pasta or tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • Chopped veggies, optional
  • Meat or sausage topping, optional

Prep time: 2 minutes. Bake in a toaster oven or conventional oven at 350 degrees until cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes.

This recipe is all about using what you have. You can use any pizza crust, but flatbread and thin crust keep the calories lowest. I like the Flatout flatbreads – just 120 calories for this huge piece of bread. To save time, I buy the frittata mix veggies – diced red and green peppers plus diced onions in the produce section. I love these for convenience and I can also use them in my omelets. If you prefer, you can cut your own veggies or if you want larger pieces, get the sliced variety.  You can use any oil you already have, such as canola or vegetable oil.  For the shredded cheese, I used the Kraft natural fat free cheese this time but I usually use part skim shredded mozz.

Here is what you do:

Pour the 1 tsp of oil down the middle of the flatbread, lengthwise. Brush (or smooth with fingers) all over the bread. Do the same with the tomato sauce. Sprinkle cheese all over. Add toppings. (I made 2 pizzas, using a leftover burger I broiled a few days earlier on one and turkey kielbasa on the other.) Pop that bad boy in the toaster oven or conventional oven until the cheese melts, which takes maybe 2 minutes. Depending on your oven it could be faster or longer so be sure to watch it. That’s it – time to eat! Yumm!
