Recipe: Greek-Style Flatbread Pizza

Just another 'Manic Monday'... work, then gym, then laundry and house-work... so I opted for something quick and easy for dinner.  Since I still have a bunch of leftover tomatoes from the bag-full I took from my parent's house last week (see recipe for Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce) I decided on a greek-style flatbread pizza topped with fresh tomatoes!  I always keep some sort of flatbread or naan bread in the freezer... it makes for a quick pizza since the crust is ready to go, all you have to do is top it with whatever toppings you have on hand!

Greek-Style Flatbread Pizza
(makes 1 pizza - 1 serving)
- 1 flatbread (or naan bread)
- 2 tbs. hummus
- 1/4 cup shredded 2% reduced fat mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup crumbled reduced fat feta cheese
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- handful of baby spinach
- handful of chopped kalamata olives (optional) - I didn't have any, but if I did I would top with them too!
- pinch of red pepper flakes

Heat oven to 400.  Spray a cookie sheet or pizza pan with a non-stick cooking spray.  Place flatbread (or naan bread) on the sheet. Spread a layer of hummus on top of the bread. Top with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, baby spinach, and feta cheese.  Sprinkle red pepper flakes on top.  Bake for 10-12 mins.  Be careful not to burn the bottom!  Remove from oven, let cool, cut and ENJOY!

I served the flatbread pizza with a side of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, drizzled with Italian dressing. :)
