You know those times you’ve been at the grocery store debating what to make for dinner?
We just had one of those. Thanks to product placement we decided to make flatbread pizza.
We were actually getting ready to get fried chicken at the deli, but no one was right there to fill our order. So, as we were browsing and waiting for the deli person we saw the flatbread. Bingo! We already had the rest of the ingredients on hand at home so dinner was done.
Ingredients we had on hand:
-Spaghetti sauce for pizza sauce.
–Thrive Life freeze dried: sausage crumbles, mushrooms, and green onions. Put all 3 ingredients in a bowl and add water to reconstitute.
-Cheese. Pete had the two year old Monterey cheese on his pizza and I had the Dill Havarti cheese.
Ingredient we bought:
Naan Whole Grain Flatbread
This was a fast pizza to make.
Step One: The freeze dried ingredients were soaked in water. No chopping veggies or cooking the sausage. The sausage crumbles are pre-cooked and freeze dried.
Step Two: Spoon spaghetti sauce on plated flatbreads. Use microwave safe plates.
Step Three: Add drained, reconstituted freeze dried ingredients.
Step Four: Cut and put cheese on top.
Step Five: Microwave till hot and cheese is melted. You could bake this if desired but we were after fast and easy. Caution, microwaved cheese can be very hot. Allow the pizza to cool as needed.
This was an easy, tasty meal. Try English muffins or soft shell tacos for the pizza base. You need to use a spatula if you are moving the soft shell taco pizzas from a baking pan to plate. Change up your pizza sauce. You could try BBQ sauce or a salad dressing. Use your favorite pizza toppings. Black olives, leftover meats, spinach, or tomatoes. Experiment with toppings such as bologna, summer sausage, zucchini, or other favorite foods you think would compliment the pizza you are designing!
Using what you mostly have on hand to make easy pizza saves on the monthly food bill, ensures you aren’t throwing away your dollars on unused food, and you create a meal that everyone will love! What are your favorite pizza toppings? Any unusual combos you want to share?
