A few years ago I told you about a trusted staple in our dinner rotation- MAKESHIFT PIZZAS!! If you have access to Middle Eastern flatbread from Trader Joe’s, you can easily make your own quick custom pizzas. If you don’t, try to find some other comparable flatbread or pita. Wanna see how easy they are? Let’s take a look!
I like to enlist Cooper’s help in the kitchen when I’m making them. He does a fantastic job sampling the cheese!
Casey always requests a classic Margherita pizza. Cooper likes a plain old cheese pizza.
Me? I like to shake it up! I always experiment with mine. Most of the time I add mushrooms to my pizza, but last week I used the Flat Roasted Chicken leftovers and made this concoction.
Piled on top, you’ll find fresh spinach, basil, feta, sun-dried tomatoes & chicken. I drizzled olive oil & sprinkled a few red pepper flakes on top! If I had marinated artichokes or red onion I might have thrown some on too.
I made my Mom’s Green Salad to go with our pizza. The dressing is easy & we ALWAYS need our greens.
After 20 minutes in a 400F oven, the pizzas are done!
They’re so thin & crispy! And the best part is that everyone gets EXACTLY what they want on their pizza.
I cut each round into quarters and fill the rest of the plate with salad. Tada! Dinner time!
So this is what a regular week night dinner looks like in my household. You should try it out! I bet they’ll instantly become a staple in your rotation!
