Hello Flatout fans! My name is Emily and I blog about lightened up comfort food over at my site. Just like you, I #FlatoutLove these flatbreads. It’s so fun and easy to get creative and make pizzas, sandwiches, wraps and more. Today I thought I’d show you how to ditch the bun and turn one of your favorite sandwiches into a crispy, lightened up flatbread pizza!
These Sloppy Joe Flatbread Pizzas offer all the tangy, meaty flavors you love from the sandwich, but they’re packed with hidden vegetables and kicked up with some extra seasoning. The Artisan Thin Pizza Crusts bake up really quickly in the oven and since I have always loved thin, crispy pizza crust, I am so excited to have found this simple, healthier way to have it whenever I want. This is a fun meal to put together with kids (who doesn’t like building their own pizza?) and easy weeknight dinner the whole family will enjoy. As a bonus, the Sloppy Joe Flatbread Pizzas are quite a bit less sloppy than their sandwich counterparts – less cleanup!

If you’re looking for another delicious lightened up way to use the Artisan Thin Pizza Crusts, check out my blog later this week where I’ll be posting a new recipe for Spinach Artichoke Flatbread Pizzas! No need for chips when you bake your favorite dip right onto a crispy pizza crust. Coming soon!
Sloppy Joe Flatbread Pizzas
Yields 2 flatbreads
2 oz fresh mushrooms
4 baby carrots
¼ medium onion
1 garlic clove
5 oz uncooked 95% lean ground beef
1 teaspoons McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning
½ cup Sloppy Joe sauce (such as Manwich)
½ cup 2% shredded Mozzarella
2 Flatout Rustic White Artisan Thin Crust flatbreads
A pinch of dried basil
- Preheat the oven to 375.
- In a food processor, combine the mushrooms, carrots, onion and garlic and process until finely chopped and well combined. Set the mixture aside.
- Bring a medium skillet over medium heat and add the ground beef. Break the ground beef up with a spoon or spatula while cooking. Sprinkle with steak seasoning and continue to cook until beef is browned. Add the vegetable mixture from the food processor and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes until vegetables are softened. Add the sloppy joe sauce and stir until well combined. Cover and cook for 1-2 minutes and then remove from heat.
- When the oven is pre-heated, place the flatbreads directly onto the middle rack of the oven and bake for about 3 minutes until they stand firm when lifted. Remove from the oven and divide the sloppy joe mixture between the two flatbreads. Spread the mixture across the surface leaving a bit of room around the edges for a crust. Sprinkle each flatbread with ¼ cup of the shredded Mozzarella and sprinkle with a bit of dried basil. Return the flatbreads to the oven, directly on the rack (make sure no ingredients are hanging over the edge). Bake for another 4 minutes until the flatbread is lightly golden and cheese is melted. Slice with a pizza cutter and serve.

Mitzi’s High Protein BBQ Chicken Flatout Pizza:
Hello again! For those Flatout lovers who don’t know me, my name is Emily and I blog about lightened up comfort food recipes over at my own site, www.emilybites.com. Since June is National Men’s Health Month, Flatout asked me to come up with some easy, tasty, man-friendly recipes using their Hungry Girl Foldit flatbreads. Challenge accepted!
I absolutely adore Foldit flatbreads because not only do they taste great, they’re a low calorie, high protein, high fiber way to enjoy some bread with your sandwiches, burgers or panini. That means you can load your Foldit up with hearty, delicious fillings and still keep it a low calorie meal.
These Baked Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches are a perfect example of craveable, filling, man-friendly food that you can make for just 269 calories! If you’re craving Italian or a Chicken Parm Sub, this is a great alternative that you can make quickly at home and it sticks to your healthy eating plan. Plus, it tastes just as good! The Foldit gets warm and browned under the broiler, the breaded chicken is flavorful and satisfying, and it’s all topped with tomato sauce, Mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of basil. What’s not to love?
These sandwiches could also be a great way to celebrate dad on Father’s Day. If you’re looking for another man-pleasing Flatout Foldit recipe, check out my blog for the Mexi-Burgers with Guacamole I’ll be posting later this week!
Foldit Baked Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches
2 (3 oz each) chicken breast cutlets, pounded to ½” thick
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 egg white
2 tablespoons Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
A sprinkle of salt and black pepper
2 Flatout Foldit Hungry Girl Traditional White Foldit flatbreads
2 tablespoons pasta sauce
2 tablespoons shredded 2% Mozzarella cheese
A pinch of dried basil
1. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and lightly mist with cooking spray.
2. Place the chicken pieces in a Ziploc bag and sprinkle with the flour. Seal the bag and shake and massage the chicken until the chicken is completely coated with flour.
3. Beat the egg white in a bowl with a whisk until frothy. In a shallow bowl or dish, combine the bread crumbs and grated Parmesan and mix together. Dip each flour-coated chicken cutlet into the egg whites, coating all sides and then allow excess to drip off. Then dip the coated chicken into the bread crumb mixture, coating all sides and transfer the breaded chicken to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Spray both sides of the breaded chicken with cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
4. Move the oven rack to the top shelf of your oven and turn the heat to broil. Remove chicken and place a fresh piece of parchment or foil onto the baking sheet. Lay the two Foldits side by side on the new foil and place a cooked chicken breast on each. Spread a tablespoon of pasta sauce onto the top of each breast and top with a tablespoon of cheese on each sandwich. Sprinkle a bit of dried basil over the top of the cheese. Leave the sandwiches open and place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until the cheese is melted and sauce is heated through (I left mine for 1 ½ minutes – check yours at 1 minute and every 30 seconds after until you’re happy with the doneness). Fold the empty half of the Foldit over top of the chicken to close the sandwich and serve.

Avocado BLT via Guest Blogger Emily Bites.
Yields 1 sandwich
Hello again, my Flatout-loving friends! In case you didn’t see the previous post here for my delicious Hawaiian Ham & Cheese Melt, my name is Emily and I blog about lightened up comfort food recipes over at www.emilybites.com. I love to use Flatout flatbreads and Foldits because they taste great, they’re easy to work with and they are perfect for those like me who want to lead a healthy lifestyle without giving up any of their favorite foods or flavors.
One of the things that can be trickiest for those trying to lose or maintain their weight is to find healthy, portable lunch options that travel well, are easy to put together and don’t require an oven, stovetop, or any other appliances not often found in an office. For those of us “dining al desko” in cubicles or offices, this Avocado BLT is an easy, tasty sandwich that will fill you up and make you feel great.
To make this sandwich I used the Traditional White Foldit flatbread and layered on a hearty portion of buttery avocado, some crisp green lettuce, smoky center cut bacon and some juicy slices of tomato. Most BLTs traditionally use mayonnaise, but avocado is a fantastic healthy replacement (and I think it tastes better too!). Avocados have a rich texture that seems decadent, but they are full of vitamins and fiber and since they’re a healthy fat, they help you stay full until your next meal. To make this sandwich even easier, I like to make a batch of bacon in the oven to use in sandwiches and breakfasts all week long – it only takes 15 minutes and it saves you time throughout the week!
Time to trade in your frozen entrees, fast food or peanut butter and jelly and upgrade to something delicious your body will feel good about. Make your co-workers jealous, bring this Avocado BLT.
1 Flatout Traditional White Foldit Flatbread
¼ of a medium avocado, sliced
2-3 slices of tomato (I used 3 slices of a plum tomato)
2 slices of center cut bacon, cooked crisp
1. Spread the avocado slices across one half of the Foldit. Top with the tomato slices, bacon and lettuce and fold the other side over to close the sandwich.
