This recipe is super simple and perfect for entertaining. You can always prepare the flat bread in advanced and pop it in the oven right before your guests arrive.
I used a tandoori naan for the base, which is an indian flat bread. They sell these everywhere now and they are perfect to load with all kinds of toppings. I then add an easy homemade tomato sauce with fire roasted tomatoes and fresh basil. Let’s begin…
Flat Bread Pizza (Cook Time: 30 min.)
- 1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
- fresh basil (chopped)
- 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
- olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- salt for seasoning
- Kalamata olives (optional)
- shredded mozzarella cheese
First add a little bit of olive oil to a fry pan. Next, add in the garlic. Saute until fragrant. Pour in the can of crushed tomatoes and butter. Rinse the can with some water and add to the sauce. Allow the sauce to reduce down for about 10 minutes occasionally pressing the tomatoes. Add some fresh chopped basil and season lightly with salt.
Tip: You could also add to the sauce a hit of vodka and cream to make an Alla vodka sauce.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spoon the chunky sauce onto the flat bread. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and olives or you can get creative and choose your own toppings.
Place into the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese is golden brown.
Garnish with fresh basil and slice.
Serve with some red wine.
