I love everything about pizza, and these flatbread pizzas are just about the easiest way to get some pizza on the table. I love to buy the 12-pack of flatbread from Costco. I’ll use some for sweet potato or green curry and then use up the rest for these simple pizzas.

If you need a little more inspiration, try these great pizza recipes: Homemade Veggie Pizza, which has a homemade crust; Same-Day Sourdough Pizza Crust (who else has a sourdough starter?!); or Easy Pepperoni Pizza Muffins.

Recipe FAQs

What Pizza Sauce Should I Use?

I made this recipe extra easy by using a jar of tomato pasta sauce, but you can also make your own homemade pizza sauce easily.
Here’s my favorite pizza sauce recipe from The America’s Test Kitchen Family Baking Book: tablespoons olive oil, 2 cloves garlic, 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes (extra points if you home can them, which I do every summer!)—In a small sauce pan, cook the oil and garlic together over medium heat until the garlic starts to smell good. Add the tomatoes and simmer until the sauce thickens a bit, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Does flatbread freeze well?

The flatbread freezes great! So pop them in the freezer if you aren’t going to use them all, and plan on these simple pizzas when you need a meal in a pinch.

What’s the difference between flatbread pizza and regular pizza?

Flatbread pizza is a simple solution to your pizza craving that doesn’t require making any pizza dough. This really streamlines the process. It’s not only easier, but flatbread pizzas bake faster since you don’t have to let a dough crust cook. They’re delicious and a great recipe for kids to help make.

Expert Tips

  • Set up the ingredients like a buffet and get the kids involved. A muffin tin works great to organize the toppings.
  • Don’t let the sauce sit on the crust for too long. It makes the crust overly soggy, and it’s hard to fix once it happens. It’s ideal to get things sauced and topped within about 10 minutes.
  • Find a flatbread that you love. If it’s good on its own, it’ll make great pizza. If it’s only OK on its own, it’ll be a mediocre flatbread pizza crust as well.
  • For this recipe, bake the pizza directly on the pan and skip the parchment or baking mat. This helps the bottom of the flatbread get a little crisp, and it’s a really great texture.

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

  • Store the leftovers after they have fully cooled. If you stack up leftover warm pizza in a container, they’ll get soggy.
  • Store cooked leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • When you want to reheat the pizza, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and place a baking stone or a baking sheet in the oven to warm up with the oven. Place your flatbread pizza on the baking stone or sheet when the pizza and pan are hot. Bake until fully reheated, generally 5-8 minutes. Preheating the pan before adding the pizza helps the crust to re-crisp nicely.

    I added a bunch of toppings (onions, bell peppers, cilantro, cucumber, tomatoes, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, and spices), while following the preheat and baking directions. Turned out perfectly! Simple and delicious.

    Hi! When you say you buy flatbread from Costco, do you need naan bread? Just checking, in case I haven’t seen packages of flatbread at Costco! Thanks, Heather

      Yep, that will work too, I’ve seen both there and they are pretty much the same.

    This was quick and easy and very delicious. Just added whatever vegetables along with some cooked chicken breast and Alfredo sauce so we could customize our own pizza. Yum!

    1. Melissa says:

      Isn’t it lovely to just be able to throw them together? Thanks for leaving a review, that’s so helpful.
