When it comes to family friendly meals a homemade pizza can’t be beat! This Mushroom Flatbread is bursting with flavor. From the crispy thin homemade crust, to the roasted mushrooms, and gooey mozzarella, you’ll have a meal that makes everyone happy!

The best part of this delicious flatbread is that it’s way healthier than take-out. The crust is made with whole wheat flour, the cheese is reduced, and the toppings are nutrient rich.

You can also change up the toppings if you don’t have a mushroom lover in the house!

What makes this Mushroom Flatbread healthy?

  • High in Fiber: Using whole wheat flour to make the crust increases the fiber content of this pizza.
  • Lower in Fat and Calories: Reducing the total amount of cheese, and using toppings like mushrooms, or other fresh vegetables reduces the overall fat and calories for this flatbread.
  • High in Vitamins and Nutrients: Mushrooms are a nutrient rich food. They contain fiber along with copper, potassium, magnesium, zinc as well as B vitamins.

Will kids enjoy this Mushroom flatbread?

Kids love flatbreads and pizza! They may not be a big fan of mushrooms, as I know many kids are turned off by them, (even I was as a kid), but you can put the mushrooms on your half and a different nutrient rich vegetable they love on their side!

What is the best dough to use for a flatbread pizza?

This recipe uses a homemade whole wheat crust. To save time you can buy pre-made whole wheat dough from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. They also have other whole grain flatbread that can be used as a substitute for homemade.

Just be sure to get one that is whole grain to increase the fiber and nutritional value.

What are the best mushrooms to use?

I like to use Cremini, buttons, or shiitake mushrooms. All these mushrooms are small in size which makes it easy to slice and top them on pizza. Mini bellas would be another good option. However, you can use whatever mushrooms you have on hand. Be sure to wash them well.

What do you serve with Mushroom Flatbread?

This flatbread makes 4 small, or 2 large servings. For a family of 4 I suggest serving it along with a light salad, some steamed vegetables, or a hearty soup.

Top Tips for Making the Best Mushroom Flatbread

  • Be sure to give the pizza dough enough time to rise.
  • Cover dough with a damp towel.
  • Dough will double in size when it’s ready.
  • If you want to save time use a store bought pizza dough. I suggest Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods’ fresh whole wheat pizza dough.
  • If there’s someone in your family that’s not a fan of mushrooms, choose other healthy veggie toppings such as spinach, zucchini, broccoli, squash, tomatoes, or anything else you have in the fridge.
  • Make sure your oven is preheated before putting the pizza in the oven.
  • Feel free to change up the cheese on this pizza: parmesan, an Italian shredded cheese blend, or even goat cheese would all work well.
