Food Chronicles Part 1- The Flatbread Pizza

As a student and I suppose a “me thing”, I find myself always hungry; doesn’t matter what time- it can be during lectures or after midnight and I find myself searching for food that I can eat.

However, I’ve been told by my friends that I have pickier taste than most. This isn’t my fault- I blame it on my family; I’ve grown up on a wide range of food from Indian to Mexican and Italian. So I thought I would start sharing recipes with you.

This first one is a beginners’- where you can mix and match with pretty much anything so great for students as we’re all about the improv- and by that I mean whatever we can find in our cupboards and fridge when we can’t be bothered to go over to a store. I got this recipe from my mom, and the greatest thing about it is the fact the ingredients used can be flexible.

It’s somewhat like….*drumroll please”…. a Flatbread Pizza.


I’m going to list a mixture of ingredients that you can use for your base and toppings, it is up to you which you would prefer to use.


Essential- Some form of Flatbread

Bases- can use one or more of these:

Pesto- red or green

Ketchup if you’re not a fan of pesto.


Mozzarella cheese (If you don’t have this just use any type of cheese)

Any vegetables for example:



Bell peppers

Cherry tomatoes


Etc. I mean surely you get the idea? (hint- think of pizza toppings)




  1. Preheat the oven to about 180 degrees
  2. Cover tray with foil- and place the flatbread on top, spread either red pesto or tomato ketchup
  3. Slice the mozzarella into slices and spread evenly across the flatbread- don’t forget this will melt!
  4. If you can cover the mozzarella with green pesto- it adds a delicious extra something
  5. Sprinkle any sliced vegetables you wish as toppings on top of the flatbread
  6. Put into the oven for about 10-15 minutes
  7. Ta-da! Enjoy!12398401_10153638148655795_1670311521_o


Quick, simple and extremely flexible makes it a quick fix and which is both delicious and somewhat healthy depending upon the toppings you used.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have!
