I love Fridays for so many reasons…
Movie nights and family game time
Forgotten bedtimes and afternoon naps
Reprieves from kitchen duty and other household chores
Fridays are designated as pizza days because my husband and I have typically exhausted our repertoire of gourmet, good-for-you meal ideas (or maybe we’re just tired of cooking come the end of the week). Some days we order out, but most days, we simply pick up some ready-made crusts, lay out a spread of toppings, and let each one create their own pizza. And that is exactly what we did last week with Flatout‘s new Thin Crust Flatbreads.
I first tried Flatout’s flatbreads two years ago during BlogHer and I absolutely loved their thin, fresh, flavorful breads. The company recently introduced their new Artisan Pizza Thin Crust Flatbreads in four varieties: Rosemary & Olive Oil, Spicy Italian, Rustic White, and Heritage Wheat. Their long thin design makes them perfect for individual pizzas. I particularly like the two flavored varieties which give ordinary pizza a flavorful twist.
As we would do on any pizza night, my husband and I chopped up a variety of veggies, and laid out sauce and cheese so my kids could make their own pizzas. I’m traditionally pretty insistent on them eating whole wheat and grain breads, but since I wanted all of to try the varieties we were sent, I let them create their pizza with the Rustic White Flatbreads.
My husband opted for the Spicy Italian and I opted for the Heritage Wheat. In just minutes we were sitting down as a family eating the pizzas we had created. This is one of the easiest meals to create and families can choose to be as healthy or elaborate as they desire. For instance, I created a veggie pizza with goat cheese while my husband simply topped his with pepperoni.
What we all really enjoyed about the flatbreads was how crispy they were in just minutes (be sure to pre-bake the crusts). You can also grill the flatbread pizzas if you desire.
Each of the varieties we tried were delicious, but I found the Spicy Italian to be the most unique. My husband, in particular absolutely loves spicy foods and thought this was a great way to kick his pizza up a notch! While this flatbread variety definitely has a kick, it isn’t overwhelming.
One of the things I found interesting about the flatbreads was the fact that each one is around 150 calories. My husband and I could have easily split one, but knowing that each was only 150 calories, I indulged and ate the entire pizza! To make this a complete meal, you can serve the flatbread pizzas with a salad! We also jazzed our party up with some sparkling juices, mini brownies and some Fall decor and crafts.
Flatout’s new Artisan Pizza Thin Crust Flatbreads are available at Walmart stores nationwide.
