Easy Flatbread Pizza

Easy Flatbread Pizza
Print Recipe
This is a quick and easy appetizer, lunch or even dinner to make when you are short on time, energy or have that empty-fridge feeling. Just like a pizza, every topping is optional and interchangeable. Just don't skimp on the olive oil! Using naan bread as a base results in a chewy, soft crust, but if you want something a bit crispier, use a store-bought flatbread instead. Goes well with a simple greens salad, tossed with EVOO and balsamic, sea salt and a few gratings of parm.

Instructions
  1. Set oven to broil, and place a rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Place the flatbread on a baking sheet, and add grated cheese, herbs, greens and tomatoes (and/or other veggies). If you want crispier greens, add them last. Drizzle with a tablespoon of Varietal EVOO and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Broil on high for 3-5 minutes. Keep a close eye on the flatbread to make sure it doesn't burn (a bit of charring can be nice though).
  4. Remove from oven once cheese is melted and tomatoes are softened. Drizzle with more Varietal EVOO if desired. If using, add a drizzle of Cayenne Agrumato EVOO as well.
  5. Serve as a whole flatbread, or cut into pieces if sharing. Enjoy warm.

For a vegan flatbread, skip the cheese or use a non-dairy cheese substitute. Use a flatbread that is dairy- and egg-free.

This recipe uses our Varietal EVOO and Cayenne Agrumato EVOO. You could use any of the following EVOO's for a different taste:
