Flatbread Pizza

In case you have not noticed from other posts I love pizza.  It was probably one of the hardest things to give up when I went dairy free. But now that I have found two great dairy free cheese options- Daiya and Veggie Shreds- we make pizza, and variations of pizza,  quite often.  Last night was one of those cool, rainy nights and the kids wanted something fun for dinner. What's more fun for kids than getting to make their own pizzas?  On my recent trip to the grocery store I picked up a pack of flat bread that I thought would make a good pizza crust.

I love veggies on my pizza and so I loaded it up with spinach, yellow peppers, tomatoes, and onion:

My oldest daughter even added some spinach and peppers to hers.  

First things first: Get the bread a little crispy before adding the toppings. I put it in a 350F oven for about 5 minutes. 1 flat bread will feed one adult.

Then I added all my toppings and used Veggie Shreds*

I made the Little One's pizza with Daiya cheese. She LOVES Daiya!

 The Dairy Free Little One's dinner- dairy free pizza with mixed veggies.  She cleaned her plate!

Mine before it was cooked:

Fresh out of the oven:
I have found that Veggie Shreds melt better when they are covered, so I tented a piece of aluminum foil over my pizza.  Daiya melts great without being covered.

This was much quicker than making my own crust, and took half the time.  I think next time we will do these on the grill!  

If you don't like cheese alternatives, try it with hummus.  When heated, hummus gets creamy and has a cheese like consistency.

*remember Veggie Shreds contain Casein.  They are great for Lactose Intolerant people, but not if you have a milk protein allergy.

What is your favorite kind of pizza?
