Margherita Flatbread

Well I had a fantastic weekend with friends and family where we went to a waterpark resort in Wisconsin Dells. One of the great things about our trip was that we rented out a large 2 bedroom suite that included a full kitchen. Having this available to use for our meals during our stay saved us some money and I was able to get my kitchen therapy fix. One of our meals included this Margherita Flatbread. A savory flatbread crust is topped with fresh mozzarella cheese, zesty tomato sauce and shreds of fresh basil and diced tomato for a quick and easy meal or snack...

I've partnered up with Flatout's New Thin Crust Flatbreads because Joel is a big fan of pizza and I love how kid friendly the flatbreads are. He helped me make this and enjoyed every minute of it. Another great thing about these New Thin Crust Flatbreads is that they don't take long to cook up - our yummy flatbread pizzas were ready in only six minutes!

Being at the resort away from home, I was thankful that there was a Walmart Supercenter store nearby to grab last minute items and even groceries. When I was there shopping for a few ingredients, I was glad to see Walmart carrying Flatout's New Thin Crust Flatbreads. So if you have a Walmart nearby, you can pick up the flatbreads there. If you're wondering where you can find Flatout's New Thin Crust Flatbreads, here's a link to help!

Now these Flatout's New Thin Crust Flatbreads are not gluten free. I enjoyed them with a gluten intolerance supplement. But if your family is not particular about gluten and they love pizza, they'll enjoy these for sure. Another thing to note is that these can be baked up in the oven or be used on the grill. I opted for baking in the oven since we didn't have a grill accessible at the resort we stayed at.

Definitely check out their Facebook page where they are featuring 
30 Days of Grilled Pizza recipes as well as the "Let's Eat!" sweepstakes they are hosting that includes a trip for two to Chicago's Taste of Chicago (includes airfare, hotel and $150 spending cash.) I would love to have a reader win - it is Chicago afterall! Maybe we can even meet up while you're in town! Enter the giveaway below through Facebook...
