Hawaiian Flatbread

Despite being Wednesday, it feels like a Friday because many folks have a holiday off tomorrow for the Fourth of July. In my mind, I'm still on a holiday because I've had Hawaii on the brain since our weekend luau we hosted! To continue with our tropical spread, this Hawaiian Flatbread made it's way to the table. A thin crisp crust is slathered with a zesty pizza sauce before a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese, Canadian bacon and a sweet pineapple salsa as a nod to the ever popular 'Hawaiian pizza'...

We had a handful of Joel's friend attend our luau so I wanted to make sure to include dishes they would enjoy. Every kid I know is familiar with pizza so as a twist, these flatbreads made it on the menu. The ever popular 'Hawaiian pizza' takes Canadian bacon and diced pineapple as a topping on a pizza crust. Drawing inspiration on that, I used a {gluten laden} flatbread and topped it with same, with the exception of a pineapple salsa instead. It turned out great and they were popular with the kids and adults alike.

1 package Flatout Flatbread or 6 flatbread
3/4 cup pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place flatbread on prepared baking sheet. Divide pizza sauce among the flatbread, spreading a thin layer on each.

Top each flatbread with shredded cheese, followed by Canadian bacon and salsa.

Bake flatbread in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until cheese is melted and bottoms are crisp.

Remove from oven and cut into pieces before serving.
