Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes
A few minutes of assembly yields this tasty candidate for a quick lunch or dinner. The original recipe counts one 9-inch flatbread pizza as 2 servings, but we're thinking that those portions would be good for children. A teenager or hungry adult would most likely eat 1 flatbread pizza, or close to it.
Recipe author Pam Anderson uses nan, an Indian flatbread, as the base for this pizza, topped with pesto and Canadian bacon. But we found that using a whole-grain, non-Indian kind of flatbread called Flatout greatly reduced the calories and sodium. Both kinds of flatbread are available at Giant stores.
Serve with a green salad.
