Rustic Flat Bread Pizza

By Aurora Ibarra

Pizza night just got a lot better (and healthier)! This flat bread pizza is hearty, full of vegetables and delicious. It takes pizza night at your house to another level. I made mine vegetarian but of course top with whatever you like. This is a great guiltless way to enjoy a household favorite while pleasing everyone.

This recipe serves 4-5 people, and you can cut the bread into individual pieces so everyone can make their own version with whatever toppings they like. Bonus — since it’s flat bread, you don’t need to knead the dough or let it rise — instant gratification and no need for greasy takeout!

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Yields 4-5 servings


For the flatbread (this makes enough to serve 4-5 people, or two big flatbreads):

  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sunflower or canola oil
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Toppings (enough for one big flatbread, or two people– if you plan on doing the whole flatbread recipe, double the toppings)

  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 small can of artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper, thinly sliced (either fresh or canned)
  • 10 black olives, roughly chopped
  • feta cheese
  • some green leaves (I had baby spinach on hand)
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and ground pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a big bowl. Make a well in the middle and pour the water and oil, mix until dough starts to form. Knead for a couple minutes, and divide into two pieces (if it is for only two people, reserve the second ball of dough for a later meal).
  3. Roll out each ball into a thin rectangular rustic shape. Place over parchment paper on a baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes. Take the brad out of the oven, sprinkle with the Parmesan and rest of the toppings. Drizzle with about a tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with feta cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Bake an additional 4 minutes, until edges start to turn golden brown. Serve warm with a big green salad!
