Delicious, healthy, easy pizza in 5 steps:
- Go to Aldi-I-love-that-place. If you are in the greater Metro Nashville area, try to swing by before my husband does so that the item in question will still be available (don't ask which Aldi--any Aldi).
- Purchase a package of Fit & Active Flatbread as pictured above. If you happen to have gotten to Aldi after my husband, just do the best you can.
- When you get home, preheat your oven to 400ºF. Meanwhile, prep your toppings: cheese(s) of your choice, veggies, meats, fruits--I'm not the boss of you, but I strongly recommend you consider bacon.
- When the oven is hot, brush a flatbread with some olive oil and toast it on a parchment-lined baking sheet for about 5 minutes or until it is lightly crisp. Not cracker-straight-out-of-the-package crisp, but kind of cracker-that-has-gone-stale crisp. Crisp-ish. This is not a science, people--it's an art--just decide how crisp you want it and that is when you take it out.
- Take said crisp-ish flatbread out of the oven, spread on a little tomato sauce, the cheese(s) and other toppings, then put that delicious beauty back in the oven for about 5-8 minutes or until the toppings suit you but before the cheese burns.
BAM. Done. This will end forever my quest for a perfect pizza solution for the different eaters I feed--now everybody can have what they like, and practically whenever they like too.
Tip: this bread freezes very well, which is a good thing because we stocked up on it to the tune of more than a dozen packages. Hurray! Pizza on demand for a good long time.
