Flatbread pizza has been around for centuries. But it’s only been in my house for the past five years. Why? well, the answer is simple. I’m a Bronx girl and for me, pizza always starts out as a circle and then it becomes a triangle. Are you wondering if I had ever eaten flatbread pizza in a restaurant? Of course I had. The difference is that I’d never made one at home.
That all changed the day I found ready made flatbread pizza dough in the supermarket. It does not take much to inspire me. Within minutes, I was thinking of all of the combinations of pizza I would make for the family. My first thought was savory. I get excited about mushrooms. Then I thought sweet. Caramelized figs and pears was the first sweet pizza I’d ever made.
Flatbread Pizza for Breakfast, Dinner or Lunch
One of the cool things about leaning into plant-based nutrition is that you get to remix your plate. Who says you have to start your day with a bowl of cereal? How about flatbread pizza with tomato and caramelized onions? We love the tomatoes for their deep red color which means that it’s giving us a powerful punch of anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are cancer fighting friends and we can find lots of them in richly colored foods like tomatoes, oranges and eggplant.
This recipe is an easy one. I used store-bought flatbread pizza dough and really simple ingredients. I love onions. You practically have to beg me not to put them into every dish. I love how they break down slowly on a low flame and become caramelized and sweeter.
And in case you didn’t know it, onions are packed with anti-oxidants too. They also are a good source of vitamin c, potassium and manganese. Have fun with this flatbread pizza recipe and then make it your own. I decided to use vegan pepper jack cheeze and was not disappointed. My pizza had a nice little kick wrapped around the sweetness of the onions and tomatoes. There are almost no wrong answers here!
