This quick and easy Pepperoni Flatbread Pizza recipe comes together in about 10 minutes, can be customized with any of your favorite pizza toppings and is the perfect kid-friendly dinner. How can you go wrong with crispy pepperoni, melty Mozzarella, homemade marinara sauce and fresh basil?
- Flatbread - This is a quick and easy alternative to making your own pizza crust. There are a lot of different brands that make pre-packaged flatbread. Stonefire is one of my favorites. You can usually find the flatbread by the regular bread, next to the tortillas, or in the deli.

- Pizza sauce - I used my homemade Paleo Pizza Sauce recipe for this, but feel free to use your favorite jarred sauce.
- Mozzarella cheese - for this I used a pre-shredded mozzarella cheese, but it is also delicious with fresh sliced mozzarella
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the flatbreads on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle on the onion powder and garlic powder. Bake for 5 minutes or until the bread starts to brown just slightly.
STEP 2: Remove from the oven and spread the pizza sauce across the bread in an even layer.
STEP 3: Top with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni and bake for 5 minutes, or until the pepperoni starts to get crispy and the cheese is nice and melted.
STEP 4: Top the flatbread pizzas with fresh basil and red pepper flakes, before serving.
Recipe Tips and Variations
- Storage info - Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
- Make ahead - I like to make these in large batches and individually freeze them for later. I recommend freezing them unbaked.
- Mix up the toppings - The great thing about this Pepperoni Flatbread Pizza is that it doesn't even have to be made with pepperoni at all. You can use any of your favorite pizza toppings.
- Add garlic: Spread some delicious Garlic Confit on top of the crust before adding your sauce.
- Switch up the sauce - I also like to make these with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce, Pesto Marinara Sauce, or even make a taco pizza with this Taco Sauce Recipe
