Tomato Basil Crete-zza

This amazing vegetarian flatbread pizza explodes with fresh, Mediterranean flavors. And the best part…the kids will love it. I can’t get my kids to eat tomatoes for the life of me. They used to love them, then they spent a weekend away with cousins who hated tomatoes, and they have hated them ever since.

But this pizza, even with it’s plethora of tomatoes, makes the cut. Why? Because it is absurdly delicious. And it’s easy to make too.



1. Cover your dough in sauce.



2. Add the cheese to your liking.



3. Dice up your veggies.



4. Chiffonade your basil.



5. Add all of your toppings and your feta.



6. Bake for 15 minutes, and voila! (Or, as the Greek would say, κεκαλυμμένος!)
