Wait until you try this quick, easy, and delicious chicken spinach flatbread pizza recipe that can be ready in under 20 MINUTES! Family-friendly and perfect for those busy nights! 

As a busy wife and mom to three teenage girls, I love recipes that are quick, easy, healthy and use fresh ingredients.

Typically, I gravitate to meals that are low in starchy carbs. Flatbread pizza is not a low carb meal, but I do like to indulge every now and again because the family loves it and it satisfies my pizza craving.

I try to make it a little healthier by choosing a whole wheat or whole grain flatbread option. The variations of this dish are endless. If you are not into chicken and spinach, make it with sautéed onions, peppers, spinach and mushrooms. Or swap out the chicken for tofu.

And if you have leftovers from another meal, sounds like a good flatbread pizza recipe to me! Use what you like and experiment!

Caramelized Pear Flatbread Pizza Recipe

This caramelized pear flatbread pizza recipe is so tasty and simple to make. It’s good enough to serve as an appetizer or brunch side if you cut it into slices. Or it can be served as a main dish.

Grab your favorite flatbread and set it on a non-stick pan while you pre-heat the oven to 400. Slice up one pear and onion, then saute both in extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then set aside. Bake the flatbread for 5 minutes to crisp it up in the oven before topping it.

After the pear mixture cooks down and gets soft, top the flatbread with it. Then top it off with half of the fresh arugula or spinach from the garden. Add some fresh mozzarella balls. If you want to add a nutty texture, top it off with some walnuts. Then pop it in the oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and drizzle a balsamic glaze. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to cool, then slice up and enjoy!

  • Flatbreads: Naan, tortillas, pita bread, pizza dough, cauliflower flatbreads, almond flour pizza crust, crescent rolls (for sweet versions)
  • Sauces: Classic tomato sauce, pesto, Alfredo sauce, BBQ sauce, balsamic glaze, teriyaki sauce, sriracha mayo
  • Cheeses: Mozzarella, ricotta, goat cheese, feta, cheddar, Parmesan, provolone, mascarpone
  • Proteins: Chicken, turkey, sausage, shrimp, tempeh, tofu, ground beef, pepperoni, ham, bacon
  • Vegetables: Spinach, onions, peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, corn, black beans

How Long Can Flatbread Last in the Refrigerator?

I don’t typically have any leftovers because every last bite of it goes. But the lifespan of your flatbread pizza in the refrigerator depends on several factors:

  • Freshness of ingredients: Freshly cooked pizza with uncooked leftovers like raw vegetables will last less than pizza made with pre-cooked or canned ingredients. Aim for 2-3 days if using fresh vegetables.
  • Storage: Proper storage is crucial. Ensure your pizza is cooled completely before storing it in an airtight container. This prevents moisture buildup and inhibits bacterial growth.
  • Cheese type: Softer cheeses like ricotta or mozzarella spoil faster than hard cheeses like cheddar or Parmesan. If using softer cheeses, consume within 2-3 days.

Overall, you can safely store most flatbread pizzas in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. However, it’s best to reheat them thoroughly before consuming, reaching an internal temperature of 165°F to ensure food safety.

Here are some additional tips for maximizing the shelf life of your flatbread pizza.

  • Freeze leftovers for longer storage: Cooked pizza can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
  • Store cooked and uncooked components separately: If using fresh vegetables, store them separately and add them when reheating for optimal freshness.
  • Label your container with the date to track its age.
