80--- "Sandy Special" Flatbread Pizzas

I had the joy of getting to live with my brother-in-law, sister-in-law and my niece and nephew for a year in California while I was completing my dietetic internship. It was an awesome experience and made us such a close family! AND-- I got to eat a lot of pizza. My sister (in-law) Sandy owns a pizza restaurant called Stadium Pizza. If you are ever in the Temecula area, look it up. Such great pies. http://www.stadiumpizza.com/sandyhomepage.html .

The other day I was missing my Cali home and family..... and Sandy's famous "Sandy Special" pizza. Yep- she made it up-- sheer genius.

So.... I made a home version.

Sandy Special Flatbread Pizzas

Serves 2

2- 8" whole wheat flatbreads

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp minced garlic

1/2 cup baby spinach leaves

1/2 cup artichoke hearts, diced

1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup reduced fat crumbled feta cheese, crumbled

1/3 cup diced fresh tomatoes

1/4 cup jalapeno slices (optional)

2 Tbsp pine nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place flatbread on baking sheet. Spread 1/2 Tbsp olive oil on each piece of flatbread and sprinkle with minced garlic. Evenly distribute spinach leaves, artichoke hearts, cheeses, pine nuts and jalapenos (optional) between the flatbreads. Bake for ~12-18 minutes, until flatbread is crispy and cheese has melted. Top with fresh tomato. Cut each pizza into quarters and serve!

  1. Where do you get the whole wheat flatbreads? Or, what brand are they?

  2. I'm not sure which brand they are. I got them at my grocery store, near the deli. I will check next time I am there!
