Recipe: Seven Minute Pesto Pizza #FlatoutGood

We absolutely love pizza. I know pretty much everyone does, but really, it’s one of our favorite foods. It’s definitely not the healthiest food out there though, so we do what we can to improve it so that we can eat it more without feeling guilty. We add veggies, go light on the cheese or sauce, and even use Flatout Flatbreads to cut some calories while still enjoying a super crisp & yummy slice!


Not only do we save calories with Flatout, but we save time, too. To make a pizza with their Artisan Pizza flatbreads, you just preheat either your oven or grill, preheat your flatbread for a couple of minutes, add your toppings &then bake or grill for another few minutes. That’s it!

Flatout has several delicious recipes on their Facebook page- in fact, they’re sharing one every day for thirty days! The other day, I tried their Thin Crust Spicy Margarita Pizza {currently featured as Day 2’s recipe on Facebook} and it was delicious! Our grill is a little too hot so it got a bit crisp, but even so it was delicious.

1 Flatout® Thin Crust Flatbread Spicy Italian
½ Medium Tomato Sliced
2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
6 Small fresh Basil leaves

Preheat grill to 350°F. Pre-bake the flatbread on the grill for 1-2 minutes. Remove flatbread from grill. Top with cheese, tomato and basil. Return flatbread. Close lid. Grill for 4 minutes.

Oven Method: Place Flatout Flatbread on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for two minutes. Remove and top with cheese, tomato and basil. Bake at 350 for four minutes. Remove from oven. Drizzle with Balsamic.

After I made that delicious pizza, I was feeling inspired to make my own. I love pesto pizza & that’s always my go-to when we go out for a slice, so I made the most ridiculously easy pesto pizza ever. It doesn’t look like much but it is SO yummy!
