Pick your favorite topping:

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.

The kids don’t realize they are actually eating something kind of healthy. I also try and sneak in some additional vegetables under the cheese. They are softly cooked so they never know they are eating them.

I like to sit bowls out with all the different topping so they can put what they want them. They get excited as they are actually making their dinner and the don’t even realize it.

Great for kids lunches:

Did you know that you can have these flatbread pizza for lunch? These homemade flatbread pizza recipe are perfect for lunches.

We often make extras or save the leftovers and put them in the kids’ school lunches. They just love them so much better than having sandwiches every day.

These are special treat that the kids get about once a week. They look forward to it!

This easy pizza recipe is budget friendly!

This recipe is also one of our favorites because it is so inexpensive. You will save a ton from ordering pizza out. 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. It really surprised me how cheaper it is to make pizza at home. 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.

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.

How to freeze flatbread pizza

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. You will probably need to add about 5-10 minutes to the cook time when you are ready to cook them. Just be sure to watch them to ensure they do not burn.
