Margherita Flatbread

Enjoying restaurant meals at home is one of my favorite things. If you love the flatbread pizza at Chili’s, Panera, or Subway, you’ll love this simple and easy Margherita flatbread recipe.

This recipe makes the perfect appetizer if you’re serving lots of people, or an amazing full meal if you’re just cooking for a couple of people.

I’ve partnered up with Klarbrunn to bring you this incredibly easy dinner recipe. I love enjoying an ice cold glass of sparkling water with pizza, so I definitely recommend serving this flatbread pizza with a cold can of Klarbrunn’s Natural Sparkling Water!

Best Ways To Cook Flatbread Pizza

The easiest way to cook flatbread pizza is in the oven, but you can also cook it on the grill, in the air fryer, or in a covered skillet on low heat.

Best Flatbread Pizza Toppings

Red sauce, fresh mozzarella, sliced tomato, basil leaves, and Italian seasoning are the only toppings you need.

Some other popular additions are basil pesto, parsley pesto, caramelized onions, artichoke, bruschetta, prosciutto, pepperoni, parmesan cheese, cherry tomatoes, balsamic glaze, mozzarella pearls, minced garlic, and spinach and goat cheese.

Homemade Crust vs Store Bought Crust

Homemade flatbread pizza dough recipe is very easy to make because it doesn’t use yeast, so it doesn’t need any rising time.

I still prefer to use store bought crust for this recipe to make it even easier. I buy the rectangular flatbreads at Costco, but you can also use naan, pita, tortilla, or lavash bread to make a personal pizza.
