Chicken Sausage Flatbread Pizza
This couldn’t be any easier! Roasting the zucchini at high heat before adding it to the flatbread cooks the water out of it and gives it a lovely flavor. We didn’t specify what kind of flatbread to use in this because there are so many delicious options now! From various flavors of naan (try garlic!) to personal-size pre-baked pizza shells to pita bread, you can use anything you like. A green salad is a delicious accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 1tablespoon


    dried oregano, divided

  • 1teaspoon


    Dried Basil

  • 9ounces


    sweet Italian chicken or turkey sausage

  • 1


    package flatbread

  • 1cup


    prepared pizza sauce

  • 1cup


    Mozzarella Cheese

  • 1


    carrot
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 500.
  2. Slice zucchini into ½-inch-thick rounds. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet sprayed with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle with sea salt, freshly ground pepper and basil, plus one teaspoon oregano. Roast for 5 minutes and remove. Turn the oven down to 450.
  4. If your chicken or turkey sausage is raw, remove it from the casings. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet.
  5. Cook the sausage and one teaspoon oregano, breaking it up with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. It may take a couple of minutes longer.
  6. If your sausage is the fully cooked type, slice it thinly. We made this with raw sausage, but there are several good brands that are cooked, and they work just as well in this recipe!
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. (This isn’t necessary but makes clean up easier! If you don’t use parchment, spray the baking sheet lightly with olive oil.) Place the flatbreads on the baking sheet.
  8. Stir remaining oregano into pizza sauce. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on each flatbread.
  9. Scatter the shredded cheese on the flatbreads, dividing it evenly. Divide the cooked sausage and zucchini among the flatbreads.
  10. Bake until the cheese is melted and the edges of the flatbreads are golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Let stand a few minutes before slicing and serving.
  11. If desired, use a vegetable peeler to make a garnish of carrot curls.
