Melty smoked mozzarella cheese, perfectly roasted grape tomatoes, salty prosciutto and aromatic basil come together in this super easy flatbread pizza recipe. This roasted tomato and prosciutto flatbread pizza is sure to be a favourite that you’re going to want to make again and again!
While I do love low and slow recipes, those that kinda take all day (or at least hours), I also love quick recipes that give ya all the taste with little fuss.
That’s where this flatbread appetizer, or homemade flatbread pizza, comes into play. The longest part is roasting the tomatoes, but, even that, is not complicated.
While you’re waiting for those tomatoes to roast, sit back with your fave beverage, throw on a few tunes and chill. Sounds good, huh?
This is the kinda thing hubby and I love to devour on Friday or Saturday night after a busy week. You can enjoy this flatbread pizza as is, or pair with a simple salad and you’re set.
Why We Love This Tomato and Prosciutto Flatbread
- It’s easy to prep.
- It can be enjoyed as an appetizer or main dish with a side salad.
- It’s great as an easy weeknight supper or for entertaining.
- It’s super yummy!
How to Make This Recipe
Full details are in the recipe card below, but here are the basics:
Start by roasting the grape tomatoes. Just toss them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and into the oven they go.
Once roasted, give them a little mash to break them up a little.
I always like to roast extra because they’re just so darn tasty and versatile.
Place the flatbreads onto a sheet pan and top with fresh mozzarella and salty prosciutto, and try not to devour the whole lot of it before baking!
Next, into the oven it goes.
Once the flatbread pizzas are baked, top with the roasted grape tomatoes (not their juices), basil and crushed red pepper flakes. Totally optional, but yummy, is a drizzle of balsamic reduction.
All that’s left to do is cut the flatbread pizza into pieces and happily devour!
How to Keep The Flatbread Crispy
Of course, this tomato and prosciutto flatbread pizza is best made and enjoyed right away, while the crust is nice and crispy and the cheese is melty. Plus, why wait? It’s too yummy not to devour!
However, aside from that, I like to bake the flatbread without the roasted tomatoes. Put those on after.
And, speaking of tomatoes, when you do place them on top of the pizza, just try to use the tomatoes themselves, not their juices.
Tips and Variations
- If the size of your flatbreads are different than the ones used here, the number of flatbreads you yield may vary. Just something to keep in mind.
- I used smoked mozzarella here and, man, was it ever good! If you want, you can totally use regular mozzarella.
- Prosciutto was used, but you can sub with speck (which is a smoked version of prosciutto and also quite delicious).
- Instead of balsamic reduction, try this prosciutto flatbread with a drizzle of your favourite honey. Don’t you just love sweet and savoury combos?
