Fun flatbread pizza (Lunch/Dinner)

Fun flatbread pizza (from Canada's food guide)


Change up pizza night by using whole grain tortillas. Tortillas bake up nice and crispy, and are sure to become a favourite. Add a green salad or crunchy vegetables sticks to round out this colourful meal.


Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 8 min

Servings: 4

Kid-friendly


Ingredients

  • 4 small whole grain flour tortillas

  • 60 mL (¼ cup) pasta sauce

  • 5 mL (1 tsp) Italian seasoning

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped

  • 175 mL (¾ cup) chopped fresh mushrooms

  • 60 mL (¼ cup) chopped lean roast turkey

  • 250 mL (1 cup) shredded part skim mozzarella

  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) chopped fresh parsley, optional


Directions

  1. Place tortillas on large baking sheet in a single layer; set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together pasta sauce, herb seasoning and garlic. Spread evenly among tortillas. Sprinkle each with red pepper, mushrooms and turkey. Top with mozzarella.

  3. Bake in preheated 200°C (400°F) oven for about 8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley before serving, if using.


Tips

  • Little chefs love making their own pizza. Chances are, because they've made it, they'll eat it.

  • Brainstorm ideas for toppings. Zucchini, corn, pineapple, the sky's the limit.

  • Make extra pizza to have for lunch the next day.

  • Want to make this recipe vegetarian? Just leave out the turkey.

  • Choose healthy ingredients and try using less of the ingredients that are high in added sodium, sugars or saturated fat. Adding salt or sugars directly to your recipe? Remember, a little often goes a long way.

My kid loves it very much. I think it's much better than the pizza bought outside.
