Pizza & Flatbread

Sausage & Pesto Flatbread Pizza

Even though one of our biggest points of view are scratch made foods we totally understand the busy weeknights

And there are some short cuts that are just totally worth it

So even though we like to make our own pizza dough there are moments were you just have to cut corners

Flatbreads are a great way to make personal pizzas for your family without fussing about the dough

We personally like to use Naan bread which is flatbread cooked in a tandoor oven in India, Persian and Central Asia

It is a fantastic vehicle for so many dishes and it is a total family pizza night short cut

Here we are using some whole grain and some original Naan bread

To start we are going to need 6 hot Italian sausage, 1 onion and 1 cup of pesto

Basil Pesto

Heat 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil oven medium heat, remove the sausage from it’s casings and add the meat to the pan

Cook for 5-6 minutes breaking up the sausage as you go into smaller bits until they are all nice and brown

Remove the sausage and set aside

I do the sausage first because I really see nothing wrong with caramelizing the onions in some spicy sausage oil

Chop the onion

Add to the pan and cook 5-6 minutes until nice and tender and lightly browned

Oh, do you see the nice color from the sausage oil?

That equals flavor

Add the sausage back in and combine, then remove and set aside

Preheat your oven to 450 F

We are using two Naan breads here

Start spreading some pesto on the Naan

Shred some mozzarella cheese and top the pizzas

Place in the oven and cook 20-25 minutes or until the cheese has melted and browned lightly and is bubbly and delicious

    We do the same thing with Nann bread, usually on the grill outside. Delicious. Will definitely try it with pesto as you described. Love the recipes:)
