Flatbread Friday

This summer has been crazy busy so far and it’s only the beginning of June!

Last Friday was the first time in a while that I’ve been able to get in the kitchen and do a little cooking!

Knowing that I had this time at home, I went to the grocery store (Trader Joe’s & Giant Eagle Market District) earlier in the week to gather up my ingredients for Flatbread Friday.

Why have one kind of flatbread when you can have two?

I made a barbecue chicken, goat cheese and pineapple flatbread as well as a traditional buffalo mozzarella & balsamic chicken flatbread!

I love making these Flatout flatbread pizzas because they’re easy and delicious.

Here’s what you’ll need for the barbecue chicken flatbread:

  • Flatout Rosemary & Olive Oil pizza crust
  • Trader Joe’s pre-packaged plain grilled chicken
  • Trader Joe’s goat cheese
  • Pineapple tidbits
  • Trader Joe’s brown sugar BBQ sauce and marinade

Here’s what you’ll need for the traditional mozzarella & balsamic chicken flatbread:

  • Flatout Rosemary & Olive Oil pizza crust
  • Trader Joe’s pre-packaged plain grilled chicken
  • Trader Joe’s fresh buffalo mozzarella
  • Half red onion
  • 5 cups spinach
  • Basil to taste
  • Trader Joe’s “Trader Giotto’s” Tomato Basil Marina Sauce


Here’s what you’ll do for both flatbreads:

Don’t mind the little tear in the one flatbread. I never said my assembly was pristine. 

  • Take out two cookie sheets and spray with cooking spray
  • Place two flatbreads per sheet
  • Place in a preheated oven set at 375 degree Fahrenheit
  • Bake for two minutes
  • Seperate the chicken into two bowls. Toss one in the BBQ sauce and one in Balsamic vinegar. Add lemon juice and pepper to taste.
  • Remove from oven and assemble flatbreads. Start with sauce, then add chicken, pineapple & spinach/onions & basil on each respective flatbread and add cheese
  • Once you’re happy with the amount of toppings on each variation
  • Place back in the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  • Remove from oven when ready. Cut, serve and enjoy!

For this Flatbread Friday in particular I paired mine with a nice glass of red wine and a mixed greens salad with lite balsamic vinaigrette!

    1. Thank you for reading! I agree 110% the BBQ is out of this world! I also make slow cooker chicken with it, too! In fact, I made it for my lunches this week :). You’ll have to try the flatbread! I don’t want to sound bias but it was FABULOUS! Perfect for the summer!
