Homemade flatbread pizza is one of my favorite emergency meals. I always keep flatbread in my freezer for those nights when it's 5 pm, everyone is hungry, and I need an easy dinner.
Flatbread makes a perfect base for delicious homemade pizza. I love using flatbread for pizza crust because unlike pizza dough it is already rolled out, shaped, and baked which saves me time in the kitchen.
I have used flatbread, naan bread, pita bread, and even tortillas as quick and easy pizza crusts.
I top them with a couple of our favorite toppings and cheese, bake them in a 425-degree Fahrenheit oven for about ten minutes, and add a quick salad for a delicious last-minute meal.

Flatbread pizza is also a great way to use up random leftovers. A couple of nights ago we ordered gyros. Tonight I am going to make gyro pizzas.
My plan is to brush some flatbread with olive oil and top it with leftover gyro meat, caramelized onions, tomatoes, pepperoncini, and feta cheese. Once the pizzas have been baked I also have leftover tzatziki sauce for dipping.
Feel free to experiment with your homemade flatbread pizzas. You never know what delicious combination you will come up with.
What's the Difference Between a Pizza and a Flatbread Pizza?
- The dough. Flatbread pizza is typically made with unleavened dough.
- The shape. Pizza is usually round (or sometimes square) while flatbread pizza tends to be more oval and irregular in shape. Which to me feels like less pressure. When I make homemade flatbread pizza crust I let it roll out organically into whatever shape it wants to take.
- The toppings. They also usually have less sauce, cheese, and fewer toppings than a traditional pizza.
How to Store and Reheat Leftovers
Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. To keep the crust from becoming soggy allow the pizza to cool to room temperature before storing.
To reheat: Place the leftovers on a baking sheet and bake in a 375-degree Fahrenheit oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Try making your own flatbread. Flatbread is incredibly easy to make. If you happen to be a sourdough baker I put together a recipe for a flatbread that uses sourdough discard. If you don't have a sourdough starter you can use this recipe for No Yeast Flatbread.
- Don’t add too many toppings. Because flatbread is thinner than regular pizza crust it’s not going to hold up to mountains of toppings and cheese.
- Pre-cook meat and hardier toppings. All meat should be pre-cooked before being used as a topping. Also, feel free to sauté your vegetables as well. I usually don’t cook spinach, peppers, or mushrooms, but hardier vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, or carrots have a better texture if they’ve been slightly cooked before being used as a topping.
- Use a pizza stone or pizza steel. They will give you an amazingly crispy crust. You can even use it on your outside grill if you’d rather not heat up the kitchen.
