Caprese Flatbread Pizza

Whoo-hoo! Another flatbread pizza recipe. I am on a roll making these babies. They are just so easy. This particular week, I took one of my personal favorite flavor profiles to make the pizza. You have seen these flavors (balsamic, tomato, fresh mozzarella) on this blog plenty of times before. Same concept, just on a flatbread.

Here is a guideline for you if you want to make something similar.

Caprese Flatbread Pizza

  • 3 Flatout pizza crusts
  • 1 chicken breast, seasoned, grilled and diced
  • 8 oz. of mozzarella pearls
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
  • Dash of olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

Divide your mozzarella into 4 equal sections. Reserve 3/4 of the mozzarella for the flatbread. Combine 1/4 of the mozzarella, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, dry seasonings and olive oil in a bowl. Stir to combine.

On the stovetop, heat the balsamic vinegar over medium-high heat until it reduces by about half and becomes thick and syrupy.

Lightly grill the flatbreads on each side to firm up the crust. Bring them in and add the chicken and mozzarella. Return to grill on low heat (I just use the top rack) to soften mozzarella and then bring them back inside. Add your tomato mixture to the top of the flatbreads, top with balsamic syrup and serve. You may have remaining tomato mixture. Just add a little of the balsamic syrup and save for a tomato salad the next day at lunch.

This is a before and after. Can you tell? Not really. The mozzarella, acts and looks like marshmallows, they get a little bigger, and a lot more squishy. It doesn’t really melt like a cheddar would.

Well, look who is lurking in the background! Mr. Winston always waiting!!

I love fresh mozzarella and how it soaks up the balsamic syrup. So. Good. I should probably cut my flatbread in half before grilling. Regardless, I ate it all!

Enjoy – I hope to come up with a few more flatbread recipes. This is such an easy summer dinner! I have a few ideas in my mind…
