I’m a fan of easy to make meals; not necessarily convenience foods, but rather meals that can come together with just a few steps.
So with a package of these already in the pantry, Mister and I picked up some basic ingredients at Trader Joes while doing our regular Sunday grocery shopping.
4 Cheese blend (shredded), some sad tomatoes, small hunk of whole milk mozzarella, and a jar of pesto.
We all know that feeling, when you’ve just spent over an hour grocery shopping and putting everything away; the last thing you want to do is make a big mess of the kitchen with something complicated. These flatbread pizzas were the perfect compromise.
I lined sheet pans with foil, and then topped each flatbread (we started with one per person) with pesto, thinly sliced tomatoes, mozzarella, and then the shredded cheese. I baked them at 350 until the cheese was melty. They were pretty great. Crunchy, crispy thin crust. Salty cheese, oily pesto.
Then we made a third flatbread, and I decided to crank the oven to 450 and double the toppings.
We cut the flatbreads into easy to grab squares, and I had mine with a Southern Tier Warlock. Don’t judge me, it was still Halloween weekend!!
It was lazy, and it was just enough. I’m inspired to start thinking of other toppings we might be able to try with these flatbread bases.
