Flat Bread Pizza

 At a restaurant a week ago, I ordered Flat Bread Pizza. It was so delicious!! I loved the combo of topping and it was a small personal size, just right for lunch. Once I got home I decided to replicate it. I think this would be a wonderful last minute throw together meal.
Of course, I had to make my own flat bread. But if one is in a hurry, store bought is always faster. The recipe I tried for the crust I didn't really like and so I won't recommend it. But I did learn that flat bread is a generic term for a type of bread. Focaccia, ciabatta, pita and pizza crust are all in this category. So I think when I make it again, I will use a pizza crust and just make them personal sized. After the dough had raised I rolled it out and baked it before putting on the topping, just until the edges started to get brown, then put the toppings on and popped it back into the oven. One recipe I read suggested roasting the vegetables before putting on the pizza if using premade flat bread.
This pizza I replicated the one I had eaten in the restaurant. It is tomato free! Start with a generous layer of olive oil, sprinkle Italian seasoning and garlic, add a layer of spinach leaves, toss on a bit of pre-cooked chicken chunks(leftovers), cover with cheese and top of with fresh mushrooms and olives. One of the reasons I am so excited about this pizza, is tomatoes don't agree with me and this version finally clicked! This is also what made me realize I don't like white sauce on my pizza.
As you can see, it is very easy to customize! On the left, is a goat cheese version and on the right, tomato lovers version.
Does anyone have a favorite flat bread recipe? Or do you make a similar pizza?
