It maximum takes 15 minutes to make and is a great alternative when you don’t have the time or energy to make a real pizza crust. This flatbread pizza crust only includes four ingredients, no yeas and no waiting time. When comes to pizza topping I always go for “less is more”. I love using just a few but high quality ingredients. Letting the ingredients speak for themselves.

A few tips:

  • Use high quality ingredients. Using good quality tomatoes that are sweet and flavorful makes the biggest difference.
  • Use your favorite pesto. I used a basil and arugula pesto. It’s so creamy and flavorful.
  • Use a heavy-bottomed skillet if you have one.
  • Make sure that the pan is really hot before you fry the flatbread.
  • The flatbread should be fried for 2-3 minutes on each side, until grill marks start to form.
  • This pizza is best served warm.
