Who doesn’t love pizza? The combination of a creamy white sauce base, sharp blue cheese and sweet tomatoes make our Flatbread Pizza a crowd favorite. We like to use a flatbread for this recipe as we love the thin, crispy base with the white cheese sauce however any good quality pizza base (homemade or store brought) will also work well.
- Flatbread – If you don’t have flatbread, you can use any type of pizza crust or even a tortilla or pita bread.
- Blue Cheese Sauce – If you’re not a fan of blue cheese, you can substitute it with any type of cheese sauce, such as a white sauce or pesto.
- Cherry Tomatoes – If you don’t have cherry tomatoes, you can substitute them with sliced roma or grape tomatoes, or even sun-dried tomatoes.
- Toppings – You can add any toppings you like, such as olives, mushrooms, or spinach.
- Herbs – Add some fresh herbs, such as basil if you don’t have any thyme available.
