Back in February I gave up Chicken and Meats for Lent. I figured if I can make it through the 40 days without giving in, I could easily transition to a cleaner and healthier way of eating. Well, lent has come and gone and I’m proud to say that I stuck with it,not giving in! So all the while I had to get creative with my meals, as my husband and boys were still meat and chicken eaters. I would make vegan meals for myself while still making them a regular dinner. Honestly I really did love trying out new cuisine, but I didn’t want to spend the extra time making double meals for dinner. And salads became Very boring quickly, at least for me they did. I came across the Flatout Flatbread at the market, and saw they also had the Thin Crust Pizza Artisan Flatbread, which looked yummy for veggies and easy enough to make for a quick meatless meal.
I chose the spicy Italian, as it had chile pepper flakes bakes into the dough.
The package itself come with 6 flatbreads in a rectangular shape. What I didn’t like was that 2 of the flats tore as I pulled them apart from the package. I scoured my fridge for ingredients to create my pizza.
Here’s what I covered my flatbread with:
– Crumbled Goat Cheese
– Red Onion
– Baby Spinach
– Red Peppers
– Yellow Peppers
– Heirloom Tomatoes
– Grated Parmesan Cheese
I started layering with the Goat cheese followed by the Parmesan, sliced zucchini, peppers, spinach and last the tomatoes. I drizzled a cap of olive oil some Italian seasoning salt and fresh pepper and popped it into the toaster oven at 375 F for 12 minutes or until bread is golden and veggies are cooked to your liking. You can really be creative with your toppings and pile it all on! The more colorful with your veggies the better. This was easy enough and took no time to prepare and cook. Next I’ll have the boys creat there own combinations and make it a Flatbread Pizza Night!
This looks really good and easy to make, I may have to try it.
Looks so good.. I like veggie pizza! Something new to try!
The flatbread pizza looks good. I love putting tomato slices on mine. I usually make a white sauce pizza with feta cheese, spinach, tomato,and sometimes grilled chicken if I’m not feeling lazy.
The pizza looks great.
Sidenote: I always wonder how people can give up things for X amount of days and be fine with it, but then go back to it.
For me,I was testing myself to see if I could stick with my choice in order to try a cleaner and healthier way of eating. So it was more about staying firm with what I wanted for myself regardless of what I was tempted with. I realized I didn’t miss meat or chicken after a few days, and it gave me the opportunity to try new food and introduce a better way of eating to my kids.
Yum! I used to make a similar pizza back when we went dairy free. I’ve never tried the flatout bread before.
What a fabulous pizza! I must admit I use pitas to make quick lunch pizzas for myself, and I use whatever’s on hand. Yours looks so delish!
Looks delicious! I love goat cheese 🙂
Veggie pizzas are the best, aren’t they? Great looking pizza you have there.
That looks very tasty! I would love to try this.
This looks wonderful to me. I often order a flatbread pizza appetizer as my dinner item when I go out to eat. Now I can make it at home.
