Every great chef keeps a few versatile recipes in their back pocket at all times. These are recipes that can be modified to fit any season or holiday. Our easy roasted vegetable flatbread is a great example of one of these go-to recipes! Not only is it super easy to make, but it can be modified to satisfy almost any craving or dietary preference. It can be made meat-heavy for the carnivores in the family, or make it vegetarian by using vegetable toppings and creamy cheese. It’s also super easy to make with all vegan and plant-based ingredients!
Our 3-Ingredient Flatbread is Budget-Friendly
When you’re on a tight budget, it can be challenging to take the jump and try new recipes. Luckily, our No-Yeast Flatbread only requires three staple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen: Self-rising flour, Greek yogurt, and olive oil. They come together to create a super tasty crust for this easy flatbread. The additional toppings you choose to use are totally up to you, making it super easy to stick to a set budget.
Tasty Toppings for Any Time of Year
You may have a budget to stick to, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with the ingredient toppings! There are plenty of ways to add inexpensive flavors to your pizza. Here are some of our favorite ideas:
- Top your flatbread with white beans and kale for a comforting and nutritious vegetarian meal.
- Use a combination of winter root vegetables to add sweet flavors, like butternut squash, beets, carrots, or parsnips.
- In the summertime, choose light vegetables like zucchini, tomato, eggplants, or roasted red peppers.
- Be even more budget-friendly and use additional pantry staples such as pickled banana peppers and olives.
- Herbs and spices like fresh oregano, basil, thyme, and rosemary can all add a tremendous amount of flavor to a recipe without tacking on a bunch of calories.
Make it a Plant-Based Pizza
If you’re following a plant-based diet, you can easily make this flatbread vegan-friendly with just a few simple swaps. First, you’ll want to choose a dairy-free yogurt brand from your local grocery store to replace the Greek yogurt in the flatbread. Additionally, instead of the ricotta and Parmesan, make our plant-based cheese spread. The flatbreads taste great without cheese, too!
This mouthwatering recipe is perfect for sharing. Cut the flatbread into six or eight pieces and bring it as an appetizer to your family’s holiday get-together. It’s a great way to impress all of your guests the next time you host a party. Of course, you can always just make it for yourself too! It’s a fantastic light dinner, and this flatbread tastes just as good leftover for lunch the next day.
