American Flatbread Pizzas are a delicious option for a quick weeknight dinner or easy appetizer to serve to family or friends. Made with high-quality organic ingredients and a perfect blend of flavors, these fantastic flatbreads can be topped with fresh summer salads for a no-fuss supper for family movie night or a neighborhood cocktail soirée. 

This summer has been absolutely insane, and my family is surviving on quick and convenient meals that are healthy and fresh while still being satisfying. 

My husband likes to have frozen pizzas in the house as a quick meal for a hangry kindergartener, or if he just gets a hankering for pizza himself. But y’all know me…the idea of unpronounceable ingredients in a standard frozen pie gives me the full-fledged heevy skeevies and is the last thing I would want to feed my family. 

Frankenfoods and I are simply not friends so I’m *STOKED* to have discovered American Flatbread Pizzas! These handmade flatbreads taste like they’re fresh but have the convenience of frozen pizza without any compromise on ingredients. Can I get a hooray?!? 

Carefully cooked in clay ovens by craft bakers, American Flatbread Pizzas strive to marry flavors and textures with organically-grown, natural ingredients. The crusts are made from only organically-grown wheat and come in 3 fantastic flavors:

Tomato Sauce & Three Cheese

Perfect for the little tykes or cheese lovers in your life, these beauties are topped with a rich red sauce made from organic carrots, celery, onions, and luscious red wine then blanketed with shredded mozzarella, sharp Parmesan, garlic oil, fresh herbs, spices, and Vermont’s finest Padano cheese from family-owned Blythedale Farm. 

Uncured Pepperoni & Uncured Bacon

This family favorite is again topped with their robust red sauce, shredded mozzarella, aged white cheddar, uncured bacon, and uncured pepperoni because ain’t nobody got time for no nitrates in their pizza! 

Revolution

Loved by vegetarians and carnivores alike, the Revolution is made with ingredients deliciously drawn together for you to enjoy at home, and is stacked with tangy red sauce, rustic fresh mushrooms, artisan Asiago cheese, and a tasty array of fresh herbs and spices.

How to Zsoosh Up American Flatbread Pizzas

People are easy to please when pizza is around especially when that pizza is guilt-free, light, crisp, flavorful, and ready in an instant. 

I have a large family with a lot of kids, and we get together regularly on the weekends. More times than not, pizza is requested for supper, and we always oblige because American Flatbread Pizzas are a simple mealtime shortcut we all enjoy! 

The boys love the Uncured Pepperoni & Uncured Bacon, my vegetarian niece adores the Revolution, and the rest of us like to spruce up the pizzas with a plethora of summer salads and tasty toppings for added freshness and pizazz. 

My two favorite flavor combos are:

  • Uncured Pepperoni and Uncured Bacon topped with sweet roasted peppers and onions summer salad with dollops of cool lemon-infused ricotta cheese, and peppery fresh arugula.
  • Tomato Sauce and Three Cheese topped with a cool and crisp Italian summer salad loaded with nitrate-free ham and salami, tangy pepperoncini, olives, tomatoes, red onion, sturdy romaine and dressed with a super simple Caesar vinaigrette.

To make the American Flatbread Pizza w/ Roasted Sweet Peppers and Onions Summer Salad:

  1. In a 9” x 13” casserole dish, toss 2 cups thinly sliced red, yellow, green, and orange bell peppers, ½ cup red onion, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp of dried Italian seasoning, and a pinch of salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 10 mins at 425 degrees. Remove from oven, stir well, and move to the lower rack.
  2. Add the defrosted Uncured Pepperoni and Uncured Bacon American Flatbread Pizza to the top rack and cook according to package directions.  
  3. While the pizza and peppers are cooking, combine 1 cup ricotta cheese, 2 tbsp freshly chopped basil, 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley, a pinch of salt and pepper and the juice and zest of one fresh lemon. Stir together until well mixed and set aside. 
  4. Pull the pizzas from the oven and immediately top with the roasted pepper mixture and large dollops of lemon ricotta. Allow the pizza to cool and the ricotta to warm up and slightly melt across the flatbread then top with 2 cups of fresh arugula and curls of freshly shaved Parmesan cheese. 

To Make the American Flatbread Pizza w/ Italian Summer Salad and Caesar Vinaigrette: 

  1. In a glass jar with a screw-top lid, combine ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 tsp freshly minced garlic, 1 ½ tsp anchovy paste, 2 tsp Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese, ¼ tsp sea salt, ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper, and ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil. Screw on the lid and shake, shake, shake until the dressing is well mixed and the oil has emulsified. Set aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, add 2 cups chopped Romaine lettuce, ¼ cup chopped nitrate-free ham, ¼ cup chopped nitrate-free salami, 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, ½ cup shredded carrots, ½ cup pepperoncini rings, ½ cup pitted Kalamata olives, and ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion, drizzle with 2-3 tbsp of the Caesar Vinaigrette, and toss to combine.
  3. Pull pizza from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Top with freshly dressed Italian salad (or serve along the side).
