Now that Easter is over (how is Easter already over?!) and those of us who made an Easter ham for Easter dinner are looking for ways to use up that left over ham, let me introduce you to this Flat Bread Hawaiian Hummus Pizza. This Flat Bread Pizza makes the perfect, fast and easy weeknight dinner or lunch, oh, and did I mention that it is lower carb and low calorie pizza too? Yep, I might have over indulged a little with all of the Easter food, so I’m jumping back on the healthy band wagon with this one. Gotta have balance! You’ll still need to use some restraint with this Hawaiian Pizza though because it is so good, you’ll want to eat the entire thing!
As a busy mom on the go, I know how difficult it can be to make sure you have a healthy balanced lunch prepared to take to work. With this Flat Bread Hawaiian Pizza, you can make a couple of them and put the slices into a Bento Box or a lunch container and eat on it all week for lunches with some carrot sticks and fruit on the side or a nice, green salad. That’s what I did when I made these and they reheat so well – even in the microwave! This is also a great recipe to pack for your children for lunch as well! And who doesn’t love pizza?! Sneak some high fiber flat bread and nutrient rich hummus into their diet with this Healthy Pizza and they’ll be asking for seconds!
If you’ve got some little Chef’s in your kitchen, this recipe is a great one to let them help you make! I have fond memories of family pizza night’s at home as a kid. Mom would lay out all of the ingredients and then I would stand on a step stool so that I could reach the counter and she would let me “cook” dinner that night. Oh what fun!
Come on over to my kitchen, let’s push up our sleeves and get to work. Below, I have included a photo of the exact kind of Flat Bread I used for this pizza. Any Flat Bread will do but I personally think this one is the best in flavor, texture, and nutrients. I found this one at my local Walmart Grocery Store but I’m sure Kroger Grocery or any other major grocery store chain or health focused grocery store such as Trader Joe’s or Whole Food’s would probably have this bread.
First off, let’s go ahead and preheat that oven to 375F. Preheating your oven is key to having your food evenly cooked and cooked as quickly as is possible. It’s so nice to be able to place your food into an already hot oven rather than placing it in a cold oven and having to wait for that oven to heat before your food can even begin to cook. Oh, and moms out there, before you preheat your oven, open the oven to make sure you haven’t stored any pots or pans inside (like I do!). It’s also a good idea to check to ensure that your children haven’t stored some of their toys in there as well…or to make sure one of your kids isn’t hiding in there. Yikes! LOL!
Now that we’ve finished that first step, grab a piece of Lavash Bread, and place it into a large, rectangle, baking sheet pan. Be sure to spray that sheet pan with non stick cooking spray first! All of my baking pans are nonstick pans but I still spray them with nonstick spray for that little bit of added comfort in knowing that my meal won’t cook to the pan. There is nothing worse than having to scrape your dinner off of a pan that refuses to give it up! haha!
Second step is to grab your hummus – I used Roasted Garlic Hummus because it’s my favorite, but any flavor will do.
Use a teaspoon to evenly spread the hummus all over the lavash bread. You don’t want it too thick on the bread, just spread it all over like you would if you were using pizza sauce. I used about three heaping teaspoons.
After you’ve spread the hummus all over your Lavash Flat Bread, use about six pieces of ham, dice it up, and sprinkle it evenly over the pizza. I used leftover Spiral Ham from Easter for this recipe but any ham or any meat in general will work.
Now it’s time to sprinkle on the cheese! I used about half of a cup of shredded part Skim Mozzarella cheese for my Flat Bread Pizza, but you can use any cheese you like and have on hand.
Now dice up three pineapple rings or use some pineapple tidbits and sprinkle over the top of the pizza. If you don’t like pineapple you can just omit it or replace it with some fresh tomato, spinach, mushrooms, or olives.
Place your Flat Bread Hawaiian Hummus Pizza in the preheated oven and allow it to bake for about ten minutes on 375F or until the cheese is melted and the Lavash bread turns a golden brown and becomes crispy on the edges.
Once the cook time is complete, carefully remove the sheet pan from the oven and place it on the counter on top of a few pot holders. Be sure to keep this hot pan out of reach of little fingers!
Now start at one corner and lightly drizzle some balsamic vinegar over the top of the pizza. Don’t go too crazy with it, you don’t want a soggy pizza and Balsamic Vinegar has a strong flavor so a little bit will go a long ways.
Time to slice this Flat Bread Hawaiian Hummus Pizza and serve it up! You can cut these slices of Flat Bread Pizza into as large or as small of slices as you would like. I got nine slices out of my pizza.
There you have it, dinner is served – or lunch if you so desire!
I can guarantee that you and your Little’s will love this Hawaiian Flat Bread Pizza! Thanks for stepping into my kitchen today and cooking with me!
Happy eating my friends!
