When tummies start to rumble, what's faster than delivery? Whipping up a simple flatbread pizza, obvs. There's no fussing with pizza dough and topping-wise, anything goes.


  • 8 4-in. flatbreads, or 4 Greek-style pitas

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 sweet peppers, preferably different colours

  • 2 cups leftover cooked chicken, or about 1/2 a rotisserie chicken, skin removed and sliced

  • 2 cups grated mozzarella

  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces, optional


  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Place flatbread on a large baking sheet; brush lightly with oil, then sprinkle with garlic. Thinly slice peppers into rings, and arrange over the top. Scatter with chicken, then cheese. Sprinkle with walnuts, if using.

  • Bake in centre of preheated oven until cheese is melted and lightly golden, and bread is toasted, 12-15 minutes. Slice and serve warm.
