Pizza is always on the menu in this house. I could eat it every day for any meal. It’s so versatile! When I’m craving pizza but want something lighter, I make a flatbread pizza.
You make flatbread pizza with unleavened bread instead of
a traditional crust. That means less bread and yeast flavor.
I love yeast, but it’s a more robust flavor that can overpower ingredients. Flatbread lets your tomato, mozzarella, and basil shine.
Naturally, I went on a delicious journey to discover the best flatbread pizza. I returned with 31 flavorful flatbread pizza recipes for your enjoyment.
There’s something here for everyone, no matter your tastes. Let’s take a look!
We’re starting things off simply with this easy Margherita flatbread pizza.
Tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil are all old, old friends. They just want to hang out on the flatbread and drink wine.
This comes through in the rich umami flavors. You’ll feel
authentically Italian when you eat this.
This avocado chicken flatbread pizza recipe uses
delicious homemade dough.
You only need a handful of simple ingredients and time to throw the dough together. You can, of course, use pre-made flatbread, but preparing it’ll make you feel like an authentic chef.
The toppings are superb, too. Chicken, avocado, and ranch go together perfectly.
My mouth is drooling at the thought of caramelized onion pesto flatbread.
It calls for only four ingredients, and each one is divine. You can probably guess what they are based on the name.
The only thing not mentioned is mozzarella cheese. I recommend using
a Vidalia or yellow onion for this dish.
Our ingredients list got more complicated with this Italian deli flatbread pizza. It’s totally worth it, though!
Everything that comes on
a traditional Italian sandwich is on this flatbread. I love that it uses mozzarella balls instead of slices.
I found it easier to eat, thanks to the bite-sized pieces of cheesy goodness.
To make this Greek flatbread pizza
even more Greek, add lamb on top and eat it with tzatziki on the side.
Next time, I’m actually going to substitute the alfredo sauce for tzatziki and see how it turns out.
The recipe is quite good, though. The sun-dried tomatoes and feta make my taste buds sing.
This Chicken Florentine flatbread pizza recipe demonstrates how to make a delicious Parmesan-garlic sauce. It complements the chicken, tomatoes, spinach, and onions extremely well.
You’ll probably have sauce left over, which you can
toss on pasta for another meal! Try using heavy cream instead of milk and flour for an even creamier sauce.
The Mediterranean flatbread pizza changes things up by
using fontina cheese. Fontina is rich and creamy with nutty notes, so it pairs well with the pesto.
Even though this flatbread is topping-heavy, you can add onions and garlic without overpowering the other flavors.
Add lemon zest around the crust if you’re feeling extra wild.
This taco flatbread pizza is uncomplicated and unpretentious. We don’t need extravagant toppings to enjoy our pizza.
All you need is beef, taco seasoning, cheese, and sour cream. If you want to get fancy for some reason, you can add refried beans, black beans, or salsa.
other Mexican flavored pizzas!
This grilled venison sausage flatbread is mouth wateringly delicious.
If you follow the recipe exactly–infusing honey, chopping veggies, and
getting the grill out–you may think it’s too taxing.
There are alterations you can make to save time, but if you do have time, go all in. Trust me. It’s worth it when you take your first bite.
Sweet mango flatbread pizza? Don’t knock it till you try it. After eating a watermelon basil salad, I’ll believe
any combination of ingredients can work.
Mango is naturally sweet, but the bacon, jalapeños, and feta balance it out nicely.
This flatbread would be perfect for a summer brunch/lunch situation. It’s delightfully light, fruity, and refreshing.
Choose the Reuben flatbread pizza if you can’t decide between a sandwich or pizza for lunch. You won’t have to choose with this recipe.
Every Reuben ingredient is topping this pizza, including the
pumpernickel rye bread.
The flatbread has two kinds of cheese, corned beef, dressing, and sauerkraut all waiting for you.
This roasted tomato and prosciutto flatbread recipe is simple yet decadent.
Each of the toppings–smoked mozzarella, roasted
grape tomatoes, sliced prosciutto, and fresh basil–were chosen for the greatest flavor.
You’ll need time to roast the tomatoes, but otherwise, the pizza comes together quickly. Substitute sun-dried tomatoes for the roasted ones if you’re short on time.
This Mexican flatbread pizza is
the perfect appetizer for a fiesta.
This recipe uses salsa as the pizza sauce, but you could use refried beans instead. The toppings are cheese, tomatoes, olives, onions, and avocado.
If that doesn’t sound like too much for you, I recommend adding black beans and ground beef as well. ¡Que bueno!
This arugula flatbread pizza's one of
the healthier pizzas on this list. It uses arugula, goat cheese, onions, and balsamic vinegar.
There’s no meat or heavy sauce, which is a nice change of pace. The recipe uses raw arugula as a topping, but I prefer to sauté it beforehand.
You can’t beat the classic pizza combination of pepperoni, cheese, and tomato sauce.
This pepperoni flatbread pizza is a great choice for kids and picky eaters. It’s also super quick.
You could be eating it within 15 minutes of starting to prepare it. That includes baking time if you can believe it.
This Thai chicken flatbread pizza will put you to work, but you’ll enjoy every minute of it.
The smells in the kitchen alone can fill you up.
To make it more worth your while, I suggest making extra sauce for
The crust of this cauliflower flatbread pizza is actually cauliflower.
You’re in for a treat if you’ve never had cauliflower crust pizza, especially if you like thin crust! You wouldn’t even know it was cauliflower unless someone told you.
It’s possible to buy premade crust if you aren’t able to make it yourself.
cauliflower crusts can be made gluten-free which is great for those with dietary restrictions.
The rainbow veggie flatbread pizza
has a whole day’s worth of vegetables on it.
It’s delicious, healthy, and looks cool when it comes out of the oven. Tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, and broccoli each make up a rainbow stripe.
You could follow this with a rainbow cake for dessert.
Huevos rancheros flatbread pizza is a great option for any meal,
not just breakfast.
Every ingredient you use to make huevos rancheros is on this flatbread, so there’s plenty to enjoy.
I made mine spicier by adding some chili powder and a little bit of cayenne pepper.
I said there’s something for everyone on this list, and I meant it. Here’s a pineapple ham flatbread pizza for those of y’all
who enjoy pineapple pizza.
I think pineapple and ham work well together, especially with some cheese, onions, and sauce.
I recommend grilling the pineapple instead of baking it, though.
I love barbecue, I love pizza, and I definitely love BBQ chicken bacon pizza.
Sometimes the sauce on BBQ chicken pizza is too sweet, but the sauce in this recipe is perfect.
This uses chicken, but you could easily substitute beef or pork. Practically
any meat works, actually.
Buffalo chicken flatbread pizza feels like the perfect appetizer: it combines
hot wings and pizza.
You can eat it anytime, but it’s especially good to serve on game day.
You get a nice kick from the buffalo sauce, but it’s not too much, thanks to the blue cheese dressing.
You’ll love this Spinach and feta flatbread recipe. It uses spinach, onions, mozzarella, and feta.
The recipe doesn’t call for any sauce. It does taste delicious as is, but you can add alfredo sauce for a whole new experience.
This flatbread pairs well with many different foods, so don’t be afraid to make it every day.
This mushroom flatbread pizza is another example of how less is more. There is only cheese and sauteed mushrooms on this pizza, and that’s all you need.
The recipe isn’t specific about
which kind of mushrooms. I suggest using local mushrooms if there are some available. Otherwise, try cremini or morel.
The chicken bacon ranch flatbread pizza is quite indulgent. You get two types of meat, and one of them is bacon!
Not to mention the ranch dressing and mozzarella cheese. I like the concept of this flatbread.
The ranch acts as a pizza sauce, but it goes on top of everything rather than underneath.
Did you know you can make pizza out of anything? Grilled shrimp scampi flatbread is an excellent example of that.
Despite the heading, you don’t grill the shrimp or pizza. You boil the shrimp in chicken stock–I’ve never done this before, but it was superb–and you bake the pizza.
The flavor is true to shrimp scampi either way. Check out
other shrimp pizzas!
Caprese flatbread pizza? Isn’t that just Margherita? No! It’s very different because it has olive oil and a balsamic reduction.
That’s a joke, but the balsamic drizzle significantly changes the pizza’s flavor.
It adds a richer umami flavor profile that complements the roasted tomatoes.
I can’t say I’ve ever eaten shrimp and mushrooms together before making this shrimp and mushroom flatbread. It was exceptionally tasty, though.
You cook the mushrooms and shrimp together on the stove before adding them to the pizza. They both taste amazing with butter.
The prosciutto and spinach flatbread pizza uses prosciutto, spinach, and a variety of white cheeses.
Obviously, calling it the “prosciutto, spinach, and variety of white cheeses flatbread” was too long. This combination is very good, though.
The prosciutto brings tons of flavor to the plate. Check out other
great white pizza recipes!
Garlic-roasted tomato flatbread is super tasty. The garlic-roasted tomato is the star, but it has a fantastic supporting cast.
There’s pesto, spinach, mozzarella,
Italian seasoning, and olive oil. Once you try this pizza, you won’t be able to return to any other.
Last but certainly not least is the chicken mozzarella flatbread pizza. You’ve already seen many flatbreads with chicken on them, but here’s one more.
This pizza uses alfredo sauce and has chicken, spinach, basil, artichoke, and mozzarella for toppings.
There’s nothing better than a white sauce pizza with spinach and basil.
