Make this quick and easy pizza with homemade or store-bought flatbread and your favorite pizza toppings. Most grocery stores sell pre-made flatbread, which will work nicely in this recipe. If you have the time, we highly recommend making your own flatbread. We have two straight-forward recipes you might want to consider: Garlic Flatbread (calls for yeast and takes 1 to 2 hours) or this Soft Fluffy Flatbread (without yeast and takes 30 minutes). Both are excellent.
The recipe below shares how to make a Margherita-style flatbread pizza. Feel free to add or remove toppings. If you plan to add meat or hearty vegetables, it’s best to cook them first.
2 flatbread, 6 to 8 inches in diameter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
8 fresh basil leaves, plus more for serving
1 large tomato, thinly sliced
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
Heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet large enough to fit both flatbreads with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Brush or rub the olive oil over the bread. Layer the sliced mozzarella, basil leaves, and the sliced tomatoes on top. Season liberally with salt, fresh ground pepper, and the oregano.
Bake the pizza until the cheese us bubbling and starting to turn light brown in spots, 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve, cut into slices, with an extra drizzle of olive oil and a few more fresh basil leaves that have been torn into smaller pieces scattered on top.
