Cheesy Spinach Pesto Flatbread
The healthier, whole-wheat base in this pizza will keep your belly feeling fuller longer than typical pie. And in lieu of traditional marinara sauce, pesto is full of heart-healthy fats from olive oil and pine nuts.
2 packaged naan flatbreads or 1 cooked thin-crust pizza crust
1/2 c. pesto
6 oz. fresh mozzarella, shredded
1/3 c. baby spinach (optional Artichoke Hearts– or add both)
crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
add caramelized onions, sauteed sweet peppers, mushrooms… or even black olives for a flavorful taste!
- Preheat oven to 425º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
- Spread pesto evenly over flatbreads or pizza crust. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella, top with spinach, then sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
- Bake until cheese is bubbling, 10 to 13 minutes. Remove from oven and slice warm.
