Roasted Vegetable Flatbread
A million years ago, I worked at the Cheesecake Factory. One of the pizzas they had on he menu back then, was a Veggie Goat Cheese pizza and it was so good! That item has been off the menu for a while now, but I still think about it, so I knew I had to make my own variation!
To keep things quick and simple I opted to make this using flatbread instead of traditional pizza dough. Flatbread pizza takes all the work out of making pizzas without sacrificing any of the delicious flavor. The veggies roast up pretty quickly and once you assemble the pizza, it bakes even quicker. This leaves you with a killer meatless option that will have your family fighting for seconds!
Tips for making flatbread pizza
- Try to cut the vegetables to around the same size for even roasting.
- While the veggies are roasting you can slice the olives, cut the artichoke hearts into smaller pieces and prepare the cheeses. I buy the artichokes already quartered but like the cut them to be a bit smaller.
- My local grocery store makes a killer garlic naan, but this also tastes fantastic with plain naan as well.
What is flatbread?
Basically, flatbread is unleavened bread. While you can make your own flatbread recipe from scratch, I prefer to use pre-made naan which is an Indian variation of this.
What is flatbread used for?
You can eat it plain, use it for dips and also like traditional bread, like sandwiches. Or like this recipe, use it as a crust for pizza.
Can I roast the veggies ahead of time?
Yes! You can do assemble the pizzas up to a day ahead of time and then bake them just before serving. Be aware you may need to add 5-10 minutes to the baking time to make sure they're heated through.
How long does leftover flatbread pizza last?
Up to 3 days covered in the refrigerator.

How to make flatbread pizza
- Season the vegetables with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning and roast them in the oven.
- During the last 5 minutes of the veggies roasting time, I like to add the naan to the oven to begin warming it.
- Once the baking time is up, remove the veggies and the naan and reduce the heat to 375 degrees.
- Assemble the pizzas. Start by spreading your favorite pesto sauce onto the naan.
- Top with mozzarella cheese, the roasted vegetables, olives, artichoke hearts and goat cheese.
- Return the pizzas to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes and then slice and serve immediately.
