This homemade flatbread pizza recipe will be fun for the whole family! They’re perfect for busy nights or for a Friday Movie Night in! Either way, this flatbread pizza recipe will be an instant hit!
If your family is anything like ours, we have seasons that are absolutely craziness! This homemade flatbread pizza recipe is perfect for a weeknight dinner idea. You will have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes! Actually, it is usually more like under 15 minutes. That is quicker than running to the drive-thru for takeout!
Our entire family loves it because they get to make their very own homemade pizza. Mom and dad love homemade pizza with flatbread because we usually make it with a whole wheat flat bread. The kids don’t realize they are actually eating something kind of healthy. That is a win for all of us! 🙂
This recipe is also one of our favorites because it is frugal friendly. We make our homemade pizza sauce, and we use store bought flatbreads from our local grocery store for about $3. That means we can make our entire family pizza for under $6! That is just $1 per person for a family of 6. Woohoo! Serve it with a salad for a complete dinner.
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.
This homemade flatbread pizza recipe perfect for lunches too. We often make extras or save the leftovers and put them in the kids’ school lunches. They just love them!

Are flatbread pizzas freezer friendly?
Yes, they are and they make the best mini-frozen pizzas! Make this flatbread pizza as directed. However, only cook for about 5 minutes, just enough to melt the cheese some. Then allow to cool completely. Freeze and wrap in plastic wrap then a layer of aluminum foil. Then you have your own mini frozen pizzas for much less. When you want to cook your pizza, cook as directed straight from the freezer.
