How to Make Delicious Pizza Using FlatOut Wraps

If I had to list five of my favorite foods the list would include pizza, ice cream, cheese, cupcakes and peanut butter. Not exactly all the healthiest choices but very delicious! Recently, I’ve discovered an easy, lighter alternative to pizza that makes a great lunch or weeknight dinner.

FlatOut pizza! I have been using FlatOut Multi-Grain with Flax wraps to make tasty and lower fat/calorie pizza at home.

There is a science behind these simple pizzas. It’s all about getting the wraps a little crispy to hold the toppings and baking them to perfection.

Start by preheating the oven to 350 and spraying a FlatOut wrap on both sides with cooking spray. Place it on a wire rack. Once the oven is ready to go, pop it in and bake for about a minute and a half on each side. You are just looking to get the wrap a little drier and crispy here.

Remove from oven and spread with sauce of choice.

Then add your toppings. My recent favorite combo has been sauteed mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, chicken sausage and sauteed spinach.

Cheese is key! I like a mixture of goat and mozzarella.

Then it’s ready to go back in the oven for 6-8 more minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is browned. You can turn the broiler on for a second at the very end of cooking to brown the cheese a little more but PROCEED WITH CAUTION if you do this and watch it like a hawk. The crust will go from golden brown to black in a nanosecond (trust me, I’ve had to trim off the outside crust more than once because of this).

Let it cool for a few minutes and then slice and serve. Even though the crust does get a little crispy, it’s still not sturdy enough to hold the toppings without being a little floppy so either cut the pizza into small squares for serving or use a fork. (My dad is probably cringing at my suggestion to eat anything pizza-esque with a fork. ;))

Another favorite combo is fig and prosciutto with goat cheese, mozzarella and a drizzle of aged balsamic. I use a fig spread here as my base. This is an awesome appetizer to serve guests. Top with some lightly dressed arugula to really set it off.

What are your top 5 foods?

    I always make my “pizzas” with a Gluten-Free Brown Rice Tortilla from Food For Life! It is perfect and so easy for me and vegan, soy-free, and gluten-free! Everything I need!

    Ah, I just posted about my pizza party at home! I love making pizza at home but hate the grease and junk that comes from ordering takeout. I made my dough, but love this alternative!

    Yes! My mom introduced this to me a couple of years ago and it’s fabulous for a quick and tasty “treat” dinner! My husband will even roll up the pizza and take to work as a pizza sandwich 🙂 My top 5? AH! Not sure but ice cream and peanut butter are up there!

    Flatouts also makes some specifically for pizza 🙂 We prefer those because they are even thinner and crispier throughout!!

    I do this too! I have a gluten allergy so I started doing this about a year ago, it’s the best! I use the Food for Life tortilla wraps.

    Thanks for this post — I’m definitely going to try making flatbread pizza this weekend! My favorite foods are avocado/guacamole, almond butter, pizza (!!), chocolate chip cookies with sea salt and really good vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. 🙂

    Pizza is definitely one of my top 5 favorite foods so this wrap style pizza looks awesome to me! I’m also genuinely a fan of kale chips with nutritional yeast and brownies 🙂

    I know there are no such things as dumb questions…but this might be one;) If you buy pre-cooked chicken sausage as a pizza topping, but it’s still cold out of the fridge…..do you cook them in a pan first– to brown them? Or just slice them right up and put them on the pizza and let them bake/warm in the oven? thanks:) Oh and top five: salted caramel anything, guacamole, cheese, curried anything, and pizza!

    I only get 5 !!!! LOL. Well i have had to be gluten free for the past 2 years so i could fill pages with all my fave foods i miss….but right now my top 5 would be pizza (i make a good gf crust homemade and have grown to love it), a big cupcake with TONS of buttercream frosting on it, chicago mix garretts popcorn, ice cream, and then a toss up between lasagna (which is just not the same GF) and really good mexican tacos.
