This dish goes great with my Walnut Blue Salad or my Simple Side Salad.

  • 4 pieces Middle Eastern flatbread
  • 2 c. of your favorite organic pasta sauce or my Quick and Easy Marinara Sauce
  • 1 c. Woolwich Dairy Goat Mozzarella cheese (sliced in small circles)
  • ½ c. fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • Italian seasoning
  • ¼ c. diced onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, diced

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cover each piece of flatbread with pasta sauce.
  2. Place Woolwich Mozzarella cheese rounds strategically over the top of each pizza.
  3. Sprinkle basil, Italian seasoning, diced onions and garlic, shaved Jarlsberg cheese, shaved Parmesan/Romano cheese blend, and garlic salt and pepper over each pizza.
  4. Bake pizzas for approximately 15 minutes. Crust will be golden and pizza will puff up.
  5. Once taken out of the oven, the pizza will deflate. Serve immediately with a large green side salad. Try my Walnut Blue Salad or Very Green Salad.


Quick and Easy Marinara Sauce
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Pasta Sauce
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 10
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 –5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 6 large fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ¼ c. shaved Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ c. shaved Romano cheese
  • ½ c. red wine
  • garlic salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 T. extra virgin olive oil (to sauté onions and garlic)
  1. In a skillet on the stovetop, heat olive oil and add onions and garlic.
  2. Sauté for approximately 8–10 minutes until onions are soft.
  3. In a large pot on the stovetop, pour in tomatoes.
  4. Add the cooked onions and garlic, basil, brown sugar, Italian seasoning, cheeses and red wine. Stir.
  5. Add in garlic salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, over low heat for 20 minutes.
This Marinara Sauce can simmer for 20 minutes before you add to the pizza. If you have more time, you can also simmer the sauce for 45-50 minutes to give the ingredients more time to marinate. Either way, you'll enjoy it! This Marinara Sauce can be made a day or so in advance of serving. You can also make it, freeze it, and later defrost and use it. When you make this recipe to use in the Flatbread Pizza recipe, you will have left over sauce you can use on pasta or perhaps mix with fresh vegetables like zucchini, peppers and onion to make some ratatouille.
