Super Simple Flatbread Pizza

When my husband and I were in Boston a few years ago, we stayed at the Westin Copley Place Hotel.. I was there for a user conference for and my husband played tourist for two days until my conference wrapped up. We stayed the weekend and explored Boston – what a terrific city. One night we landed at the hotel’s bar and ordered their “flatbread” pizza. It was so tasty, I wanted to recreate it and ever since, I make this quite often.

Lavosh Bread (1 piece 11 x 9)
1/3 Cup Spaghetti Sauce
1 ¼ Cup “Quattro Formaggio” Cheese Blend (Parmesan, Asiago, Provolone and Fontina)
¼ Cup Diced Scallions
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 400. On a cookie sheet, place the Lavosh bread piece and spread 1/3 cup of your favorite spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle the Quattro Formaggio over the entire Lavosh bread. Sprinkle the scallions and season with a touch of salt and pepper to taste.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is browning and bubbly. Cut into 6 pieces and enjoy.

Note: Everything is available at Trader Joe’s. I bought their spaghetti sauce in a jar along with the packaged cheese blend. The Lavosh bread and scallions are also available at Trader Joe’s.

Other variations to try:

(1) Capresse Pizza – Use olive oil, garlic powder, four cheese blend and sliced cherry tomatoes
(2) Sweet Italian Sausage, caramelized onions and four cheese blend
(3) Sautéed Mushrooms with thyme and garlic, olive oil and four cheese blend topped with fresh Italian parsley
