Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, grated Mozzarella cheese, and a hint of garlic come together for this show-stopping Margherita Flatbread Pizza! Enjoy this amazing pizza without the hassle of making your own dough!
There’s nothing I love more than a classic Margherita pizza. Especially one that I can get on the dinner table in half the time as a traditional homemade pizza! And that’s all thanks to the Pita Flatbreads used in this recipe. You can still enjoy all the things you’ve come to love about a Margherita pizza, but without the trouble of making homemade dough!
Since flatbreads come pre-cooked, all you have to do is layer on the Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, add the freshly sliced tomatoes and basil, then sprinkle on the garlic, salt and pepper. Bake until the cheese is all melted and bubbly and that’s it! Yes, it’s that easy! Before you know it, you have a warm, melty, and flavorful pizza ready to be devoured. 🙂
Although I used pita flatbread for my pizza, feel free to use any other kind of pre-made crust you prefer! Naan bread or even tortillas work just as nicely! Especially if you’re watching your carbs but still want to enjoy some pizza.
These amazing pizzas work great for a quick and delicious dinner, or an afternoon snack you could share, but I am not too confident you’re going to want to share one of these. 😉
Even though it defeats the whole purpose of the simplicity of this recipe, if you’re not a fan of flatbreads, and prefer the taste of pizza dough, no need to worry. I have another Margherita Pizza recipe made with my homemade Pizza Dough instead that is just as amazing as this one!
