Grilled Mushroom Flatbread Pizzas

Kelsey from The Naptime Chef shares how she translates flatbread into a canvas for mushroom mastery and how it taught her daughter to love mushrooms.

In the summer we are dedicated grillers. We grill nearly anything and everything we can for each meal. Recently we’ve gotten into grilling flatbread pizzas. They can be topped with a variety of ingredients and it’s a fun way to get the kids involved with dreaming up new flavors for a favorite meal.Our favorite toppings for these pizzas are mushrooms, tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and garlic. It is earthy and salty, with a subtle bite from the chopped garlic.

“This Grilled Mushroom Flatbread Pizza is not only a favorite dish of mine, but also of my daughter’s – it has helped her learn to love mushrooms!”

The best part about these fun pizzas is that they can be made to suit anyone’s taste. Some other mushroom topping ideas might include olive oil, ricotta, mushrooms and thyme, or diced mushrooms with slivers of potato. The possibilities are nearly endless. Here is how you can start making your grilled flatbread pizzas, and get your mushroom grilling on. Enjoy!

Grilled Mushroom Flatbread Pizza

Ingredients:

1 store-bought flatbread

1 cup sliced mushrooms, cooked

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup fresh mozzarella, thinly shredded

2 garlic cloves, finely minced

½ cup tomato sauce

Directions:

1) Heat the grill to a medium flame.

2) Brush both sides of the flatbread with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and place directly on the grill. Grill each side for about 2 minutes, or until grill marks appear and the bread gets crispy.

3) Remove the bread and quickly add the tomato sauce, garlic, cheese and mushrooms. Return to the grill and keep the bread on the indirect heat until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve hot!
