10+ Fantastic Flatbread Pizza Recipes
Searching for a lighter alternative to hearty pizza? Look no further than our fantastic flatbread recipes. From bright and fresh options that are perfect for summertime outdoor entertaining (we're looking at you, Chicken and Peach Flatbreads and Pea Pesto Flatbread) to fancy guest-worthy dinners (this Fig Jam and Goat Cheese Flatbread is sure to impress), you'll keep coming back to our collection of easy flatbread pizza recipes.
Chicken and Peach Flatbreads
Premade pizza crusts are a lifesaver for the busy weeknight cook. Here they provide a filling base for these outside-the-box pizzas. To make your own balsamic glaze, simmer down 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes.
Fig Jam and Goat Cheese Flatbread
Using a pizza stone is the key to achieving a delectably crispy crust on this easy flatbread. While we baked ours in the oven, you could easily heat your pizza stone on the grill if you’d rather not heat up the kitchen.
Pea Pesto Flatbread
Love pizza but in the mood for something a little bit lighter? You’ll love this fresh flatbread topped with a sweet pea-herb pesto and fresh mozzarella cheese. The recipe calls for refrigerated thin-crust pizza dough, which you press into a rectangle on a baking sheet.
Grilled Chicken Curry Flatbreads
Think of this as curried chicken salad served on a grill-toasted flatbread. The quick-pickled carrots can be made ahead and hold well for several days; make a double batch to add to salads or sandwiches or even to serve on a cheese board.
Paratha Flatbread and Breakfast Tacos
We’re always here for a riff on classic breakfast tacos (see: pancake tacos), so get ready to stuff a paratha with your favorite fillings. The flaky flatbread gets its rich flavor from a mixture of bread flour and whole wheat flour, plus plenty of melted ghee.
Featuring our easy fig jam, along with tangy goat cheese and vibrant celery and herb salad, the pizzas can serve four as a light summer entree or more as an elegant appetizer.
Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Flatbreads
Naan breads are the secret to instant flatbreads (no rolling or baking of dough required). Look for whole-grain naan, such as Stonefire, and treat as you would a prepared pizza crust. Charbroiled broccoli rabe has a fantastic texture and bitter edge that makes it stand out on the flatbreads.
Flatbread with Kelp-Walnut Pesto and Asparagus
This fresh take on pizza is going to be your new go-to summertime dinner. Kelp may not sound like a pizza topping you want, but just trust us--you're going to love it.
Nutty Carrot Flatbread
We were so inspired by the vegetable flatbreads made by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl of greenkitchenstories.com, we decided to create our own hearty, seed- and nut-packed version. The gluten-free slices are perfect for sandwiches.
Tomato and Peach Flatbreads with Basil
Your next summer dinner just got SO much better. Grill the naan just until warmed through so the peaches and tomatoes stay juicy.
Lemon-Ricotta Herbed Flatbread
A light layer of creamy ricotta sprinkled with fresh herbs dresses up store-bought crust in this bread starter. Lemon juice and rind add just the right flavor lift.
Lamb Flatbread Pizza with Feta and Mint Salad
Our speedy version of lahmajoun, the spicy lamb flatbread of Turkey and Armenia, disrupts the weeknight dinner routine in the best possible way.
