Bacon, Leek and Parmesan Flatbread on

Do you have certain things that you buy every time you go to the grocery store? This is completely NOT sponsored — but I’ve been buying Pillsbury’s Artisan Pizza Crust nearly every time I go to the store. The best part about them is that they’re a refrigerated dough that you just need to roll out and place on a pan and bake. It fits my 12×17 pans perfectly and bakes up so nicely. Don’t get me wrong, I love a homemade pizza crust but let’s be real. This lady has a 3-year-old and a 1-year-old. Kneading and two rise times don’t jive well with my schedule. This roll of pizza dough is in the fridge standing by for that night when I don’t feel like cooking. It’s easy, tasty and everyone loves it.

Mine usually finds itself topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni but this time I did something different. I actually made this for dinner one night that we were doing breakfast for dinner. I paired this bacon, leek and Parmesan whole wheat flatbread with mini frittatas and some fruit. Easy, healthy, and most importantly? Delicious. And there’s bacon so that’s automatically a win.

I liked the taste of the little bits of Parmesan but if you can’t get over the look of them (is it just me or do they look like marshmallows?), you could also grate the cheese over the top of everything for a more uniform blanket of cheese. Enjoy!
