I’m always on the lookout for food products that make it easier to get dinner on the table, like premade pizza crusts. That’s why I was excited to come across Flatout Flatbread’s Thin Crust Flatbreads Artisan Pizza at Walmart. (Find the store nearest you that sells Flatout’s Thin Crust Flatbreads here.)
I’ve been a big fan of Flatout Flatbread’s other products and was sad to give them up when I went gluten free. However, with Flatout’s Thin Crust Flatbreads, I can use these for my family and save my much more expensive gluten free pizza crusts for me. I’m sure my family will find these a bit more delicious, too.
I especially like individually sized flatbread pizzas since you can custom make them with everyone’s favorite pizza toppings – perfect for picky kids or those with food sensitivities or allergies. Flatout’s Thin Crust Flatbreads also make great party appetizers – just cutting them up into smaller, bite sized pieces. Finally, Flatout’s Thin Crust Flatbreads can be used on the grill as well as the oven.
A Seattle and Dr. Seuss inspired pizza
When I was in Seattle, I had the most wonderful salad – a chopped sirloin patty served on romaine lettuce with a runny egg on top - at Von's GustroBistro. Marvelous!
I started brainstorming about doing something similar with a pizza – greens, eggs, and ham like the famous Dr. Seuss story, Green Eggs and Ham! Instead of ham, I decided to use diced prosciutto since it would be easy to evenly sprinkle it over the flatbread. For greens, I used a mix of arugula and spinach, but feel free to experiment and use your favorite lettuce greens. I also used Flatout’s Spicy Italian Thin Crust Flatbread. If it’s too spicy for you or your family, use Rustic White, Heritage Wheat, or Rosemary & Olive Oil instead.
Also, I should warn you there are hazards serving not fully cooked eggs to family and friends. If you have concerns, you can bake the egg until it’s cooked through. Or you can use slices of hard boiled eggs on your pizza instead. (Adjust cooking times accordingly to just melt cheese, cook greens, and warm egg slices.)

Greens, Egg & Ham Flatbread Pizza
- 1 Spicy Italian Flatout Thin Crust Flatbread
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup diced prosciutto
- 1/2 cup shredded pizza cheese (I used a mix of parmesan, asiago, fontina, and mild provolone.)
- 1 cup mixed greens (I used spinach and arugula.)
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Using a pastry brush, brush on olive oil on one side of flatbread.
- Place flatbread oil side up on to a baking sheet or pizza peel.
- Evenly sprinkle prosciutto then shredded cheese on to flatbread.
- Cover the flatbread with greens. Make two small “wells” in the greens on either end of the flatbread to hold the eggs.
- Place in oven for 5 until cheese starts to melt. (If using a pizza peel, slide flatbread on to a pizza stone.)
- Remove pizza from oven. Carefully crack eggs into your wells in the greens. Gently put the pizza back in the oven.
- Continue baking for 13 minutes until the egg is cooked but still runny.
- Carefully remove the flatbread pizza from oven and sprinkle just the egg with a little salt and pepper. Allow to rest for a minute or two.
- Cut in half and serve. You can use pieces of crust to dip into the yolk. Or you can break the yolk and spread it over the surface of your pizza if you like.
- Serving size: 1 to 2 servings
