Zucchini Flatbread Pizza

Need an idea for a quick, light dinner?

Try my Zucchini Flatbread Pizza!!  It's super easy to make, loaded with zucchini and cheesy goodness, and has a great KICK!  Oh, I love me some red pepper flakes...  


Zucchini Flatbread Pizza
(makes 2 servings)

Ingredients:
1 whole grain flatbread, or naan bread
1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. crushed garlic
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper
1 zucchini, grated
1/2 cup 2% mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tbsp. feta cheese, crumbled
red pepper flakes to taste

Directions:
Heat oven to 400F.  Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

Place flatbread (or naan bread) on greased cookie sheet.  Drizzle olive oil over top of flatbread, then spread around with knife until top is coated evenly.  Spread crushed garlic evenly over top of olive oil.

Grate a zucchini on to a paper towel.  Wring out the paper towel over sink to get excess water out of zucchini.

Place a layer of grated zucchini over top of the flatbread.  Season with salt and pepper.


Add a layer of mozzarella cheese, then a layer of feta cheese.  Season with red pepper flakes to taste (I like it on the hot side).


Bake for 12-14 min.  Allow to cool.  Cut.  And enjoy!



These toppings would be yummy too:

  • diced tomatoes
  • sun dried tomatoes
  • pepperoni
  • mushrooms
  • shredded chicken

This pizza is perfect for a light dinner.... if you are starving you will probably end up wanting to eat the whole thing!  DON'T!  Instead of scarfing down an entire pizza add a side salad for a healthy, well-balanced dinner.

Xo,
Janel
