Healthy Veggie Flatbread Pizza

Sharing is caring!

If you have been here for a while, you know my love for this Healthy Veggie Flatbread Pizza Recipe runs deep. I’ve been making these for YEARS, and for a long time we had flatbreads every single Monday night for our “Meatless Monday” dinner. It is such an easy and tasty meal that comes together super quickly, making it perfect for weeknights. It’s also very versatile, so the whole family will love it!

I’m sharing my go-to toppings when we make these flatbreads below:

  • Whole grain flatbreads — the ones pictured below are from ALDI and they are great! At other stores you might find Flatout brand, which also has some great whole grain options.
  • Marinara sauce
  • Fresh baby spinach
  • Bell peppers
  • Red onion
  • Meatless crumbles — you can use any brand, but I really love Gardein
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Optional toppings: Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper, grated Parmesan

how to make healthy veggie flatbread pizza

Like I mentioned, these come together super quickly. Especially if you do a little bit of prep work in advance, like chopping up bell peppers & onions a day or two ahead of time, and/or use other veggies that are already leftover in the fridge. I typically pre-chop my veggies on Sunday, and then make these flatbreads within a day or two!

Step-By-Step Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425 F. 

Place flatbread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Spray the flatbread directly with extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil cooking spray.

Place flatbread in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes BEFORE adding any toppings. This will help it get a little bit crispy.

While flatbread is in the oven, cook meatless crumbles in a small skillet over medium-high heat (according to package instructions) and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. This should take 3-4 minutes. 

After the flatbread has cooked for 5 minutes, remove it from oven and add your toppings.

Assembling Your Flatbread

First, add 2 Tbsp of marinara sauce and spread a thin, even layer on top of flatbread. (You may also use pesto, hummus, cream cheese, alfredo, olive oil, etc. as a spread if you prefer.)

Next, add fresh spinach all over the top of the sauce.

Add cooked meatless crumbles, chopped peppers and onions, then shredded mozzarella cheese. (and/or any other desired toppings.)

Place assembled flatbread in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are brown and crispy. (I would check around the 7-8 minute mark, since all ovens cook a little differently!)

Remove from oven and slice with a pizza cutter. Finish off with Italian seasoning, crushed red peppers and some grated Parmesan cheese, if desired. 

Serve immediately. Enjoy!

The great thing about these flatbreads is that they are super versatile. You can add any and all pizza toppings you like, or whatever you have in the fridge at the time! Make them vegetarian or throw on any leftover meat or pepperonis. You can even mix up the base by using marinara, cream cheese, or pesto – up to you!

  • Veggies: peppers, onions, garlic, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, arugula
  • Bases: marinara sauce, cream cheese, pesto, alfredo, olive oil
  • Proteins: meatless crumbles, turkey or regular pepperoni, ground beef, shredded chicken

We usually just eat an individual pizza by itself for our meal, but you can totally serve it alongside a yummy salad or some roasted veggies!

tips for parents of picky eaters

As a dietitian, I talk to a lot of clients who are parents of picky eaters. They are always on the hunt to find recipes that the whole family will eat and enjoy so they don’t feel like a short order cook every night. There are a lot of different strategies you can utilize to improve or (hopefully) avoid picky eating in your household. Head to my blog post on baby-led weaning here for tons of resources that you might find helpful.

Try to make the dinner table a positive and encouraging environment, rather than a stressful one. This means avoid pressuring your kiddos to eat if possible. This is REALLY hard for most parents, especially when their kids won’t touch a thing on their plate, and I completely get it. But, they say that pressuring them can increase food refusal, so try your best to *play it cool* at the table. The very BEST thing you can do is model the behavior yourself. Have healthy foods available and eat + enjoy them yourself. Your kids will see and pick up on that!

Also, depending on your kids’ age, get them involved! Have them help you pick out meals to make for the week, or go grocery shopping and pick out items with you (i.e. “help me pick out a red vegetable!”, etc.) and if they are able, have them help prepare their meals, too. This might just mean putting certain foods on their plate, or for these pizzas, you could have them help “decorate” their own!

Make food FUN for them, and they will be a lot more excited about it and willing to explore!
