Easy Rainbow Pesto Veggie Flatbread Pizza Recipe

Rainbow Pesto Veggie Flatbread Pizza Ingredients

  • 2 pieces Trader Joe’s Lavash Flatbread
  • 6 oz pesto, divided (we used Trader Joe’s Pesto Genovese)
  • 1-1 1/2 c  Trader Joe’s Quattro Formaggi shredded cheese, divided
  • Chopped veggies of your choosing (We use grape tomatoes, orange peppers, yellow peppers, broccoli florets, and red onion to create a rainbow, but just about any veggie variety will work.)
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Rainbow Pesto Veggie Flatbread Pizza Preparation Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees while you prep your flatbread pizzas.
  2. Chop all of your vegetables. The quantities will depend upon your preference.
  3. Lightly brush the bottom of each flatbread with olive oil and place them on a cookie sheet.
  4. Spread approximately 6 tbsp of pesto on the top of each flatbread, just about to the edge. Add more if it looks too sparse. You only want just enough to cover each flatbread.
  5. Sprinkle 3/4 c (a little less, a little more, you decide) over the pesto.
  6. Arrange your veggies in a rainbow of color for Pride Month, or mix all the veggies together with 2 tsp of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste, and spread evenly across the top of the shredded cheese.
  7. Add a little torn fresh basil to the veggies before baking, or chiffonade the basil and add to the top as a fresh garnish after baking.
  8. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until the edges are browned and the veggies are cooked.

Tips for Adding Vegetables to Pizza

There are plenty of ways to make a veggie pizza, but some tips will help you perfect your own recipe. While bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms are great options, explore a wider variety of vegetables for something different. Asparagus, broccoli florets, thinly sliced eggplant, or even summer squash can add exciting flavor and texture. Another way to take advantage of the maximum flavor possible is by adding fresh ingredients to these roasted beauties. A sprinkle of arugula, chopped fresh herbs like basil or parsley, or a drizzle of balsamic glaze brings out the flavors you’ve baked into your flatbread without overpowering them.

Wrap Up
