Our entire family loves Homemade Pizza night because they get to make their very own homemade pizza. Mom and dad love homemade pizza dough with flatbread because we usually make it with a whole wheat flat bread.

We found the flatbread in our bakery section near the fresh-cut deli. They are prepacked and are easy to use. Plus, if you buy the whole wheat ones, this dinner is even healthier.
If you want to cut your costs even more, you can make your own homemade flatbread. One of our favorite flatbread recipes is this homemade naan recipe. It is simple to make and so good!
What is the difference between pizza and flatbread?
Pizza and flatbreads are fundamentally the same, but they do have some differences. Flatbreads typically have lighter toppings and less sauce. Additionally, flatbreads usually do not have yeast in them which is why they’re flatter than a typical pizza crust.
Because the flatbread doesn’t need to rise, it makes for a quicker dinner than using homemade pizza crust.
What to use instead of flatbread?
If you are having a hard time finding flatbread at your local grocery store, try using Naan bread instead. You can even make your own Naan Bread. It is simple to make and taste great too!
This is a great alternative to the flatbread. It has the same texture and taste as the flatbread.
