Making Pizza with Fresh Direct's Flat Bread

POST #    1848

I haven't made pizza in a while, but last week, we made a Fresh Direct order so I ordered some pizza items. While you can make pizza without Fresh Direct, I spotted some grilled flat bread while placing my order. Longing for home-made pizza and grilled pizza, buying the flat bread seemed like a perfect solution. Their description of the bread didn't hurt either:

Our tempting flatbread gets its extra-toasty flavor from a brief encounter with a hot grill. This flatbread is exceptionally versatile -- makes a wonderfully crisp pizza crust, great hot or cold wraps, and is an ideal platform for dips or a brushing with our herb butter. For a Middle Eastern treat, cut into wedges and serve with hummus.

So I made some spicy tomato sauce, which I should really do more often, that would eventually be used on the pizza. The first pizza I made was good, but it didn't turn out great. I should have kept it in the oven a little longer. My pizza stone helped the crispness of the crust, but it could have been better.

The second and third pizzas, pictured, were awesome. I decided to make a spinach pizza and another pepperoni pizza. I'm usually skeptical of veggies on pizza because it turns a good pie mushy, but I must say that it came out pretty damn good.

So if anyone wants to buy some flat bread and beer, I'll totally make some pizza.

a act as simple as writing about making some pizza has given me an urge, at 12:44 in the morning as i view this, to go downstairs and give myself a spoonful of sauce (the pictures didn't help either). i don't have the other ingredients (fresh direct or not) to make the desired item, so the sauce alone will have to satisfy my sudden craving. thank you very much.

you should add a little bit of red wine vinegar to your sauce. it gives it a little something in the taste department, no joke. ahaha
