Mediterranean Flatbread Pizzas are crisp and bursting with flavor. They’re the perfect snack or lunch and are ready in a few short minutes!
Sticking to New Year’s Resolutions does not mean having to give up all your favorite indulgences. Take pizza for example. A world without pizza is not a world I want to live in, thank you very much. This Mediterranean Flatbread Pizza recipe is piled high with fresh veggies and tangy cheese on a crisp crust, making it a much healthier alternative when pizza cravings hit. They’re low calorie, fun to make and even more fun to eat!
What is on a Mediterranean Flatbread Pizza?
Typical Greek ingredients take center stage on this flatbread recipe. Plump tomatoes, roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts burst with flavor as they bake alongside fresh zucchini nestled in with creamy goat cheese and spices. We love to spread hummus on the flatbread in place of sauce. The vibrant flavors on this pizza keep your taste buds singing bite after bite. It is so delicious!
What If I Don’t Like Goat Cheese?
Not a fan of goat cheese? Don’t worry, neither is my husband. I just swap the goat cheese out for feta or even balls of fresh mozzarella.
Is Flatbread the Same as Pita Bread?
For this recipe I love using flatbread pitas that I found in the bread section at Costco. Flatbread is made with flour, water and salt and then rolled into a flattened dough. Pita bread is slightly leavened, where most flatbreads are unleavened. But you could use either option for this recipe and be just fine.
Is Flatbread Healthy?
Compared to traditional pizza dough, flatbread can be a healthy alternative. For this recipe, it really serves as a plate of sorts to hold all the scrumptious veggie toppings. Everything in moderation, of course, but this is definitely a lower calorie pizza option.
How to Cook Mediterranean Flatbread Pizzas
These pizzas cook up in no time! There are a couple of simple ways to prepare them:
- Place the flatbread pizzas on a cookie sheet under a broiler until your cheese bubbles and the veggies toast up. They’re the perfect quick lunch or after school snack.
- Toss them on the outdoor grill! We love doing this in the summertime when cooking indoors is unbearable. Pile the flatbread high with hummus, cheese and toppings, then grill them over medium heat until the cheese is melted. You can put them flat on the grill, or use a barbecue pan or pizza stone. Or you can lay it on a piece of aluminum foil and place it on the grill.

How to Make Mediterranean Flatbread Pizza
Mediterranean Flatbread Pizzas
- 1 package flatbread pitas (I found these at Costco in the bread section, not the bakery)
- 1 container hummus
- 1 bottle roasted red peppers (you can find these by the pickles in your grocery store)
- 1 bottle artichoke hearts (also by the pickles)
- 1 carton cherry tomatoes
- 2 to 3 small zucchini
- 1 container crumbled goat cheese (or tomato and basil feta - they are usually close to each other, but the goat cheese is WAY better on this in my opinion!)
Cut the zucchini into bite size pieces and saute it in a fry pan with a tiny bit of oil, just until it begins to look cooked (you don't want it to get too soft).
Chop up the roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts into small pieces.
Take a flatbread pita and generously smother it with a layer of hummus (like you would pizza sauce). Top the hummus with the red peppers, artichoke hearts, zucchini, tomatoes, and then sprinkle all over with goat cheese.
Place the pizzas on a cookie sheet and place under the broiler until the tops of the pizzas begin to get toasted. This only take a few minutes so watch it closely!
