A Holiday Party with Flatout Thin Crust Artisan Pizza Flatbreads

When you think of the holidays, what food comes to mind? Cookies? Wine? Mom’s Christmas ham? Wine? All four are acceptable answers, but how ‘bout pizza? Probably not, but I think about pizza at least three times a day so, for me, pizza pairs well with just about any holiday.

I recently suggested a Christmas-themed pizza party to my mom (she hosts, I take care of the rest), and since she’s always more than happy to open her home to a small army of friends and family, she immediately agreed. Since every good pizza starts with a good crust, the star of this party was Flatout Thin Crust Artisan Pizza Flatbreads.

The Flatout Thin Crust Artisan Flatbreads come in four varieties: Spicy Italian, Rustic White, Heritage Wheat, and Rosemary & Olive Oil (not shown here). The flatbreads, which can be purchased at Walmart, are just 140 calories per flatbread and include plenty of fiber and protein. Each package includes six flatbreads, which is more than enough for an entire family or just enough for my entire husband.FlatOut Artisan Thin Crust FlatbreadsFor our party, we pulled out all the stops with the decorations. The table cloth, holiday plates and napkins, little plastic snowflakes and the paper snowman were all purchased at Walmart. We also picked up all the fixings you might need for a pizza party. Unfortunately, Walmart doesn’t sell wine. I really need to talk to someone about that.  FlatOut Artisan Thin Crust FlatbreadsLet the pizza making begin! Luckily, my mom has one of those fancy double ovens, which means we were able to cram about 20 flatbreads in it at the same time. I made my hubby’s pizza for him. You want more pepperoni, honey? (Yes.) More? (Yes.) How many pepperonis can you fit on one flatbread? You don’t want to know. How many bottles of wine did I bring to this party? Not enough.As you can see the picture above, our little diva loves peeetsaaaa. (After all, she is my daughter.) She also loves cookies. (Again, my daughter.) So we combined those two loves by letting her cut her flatbreads into some fun Christmas cookie shapes. Just cut them out, add toppings and pop them in the oven!Here are her shapes, all ready for some toppings. What did my husband do with the scraps of flatbread that were left over? He made pepperoni roll-ups and called them an appetizer. Where did I put my wine?Flatout Artisan Thin Crust FlatbreadsHow great do these things look? If I had my way – and I usually do – we would have also had some ham and pineapple on hand to make some Hawaiian pizzas, but we didn’t. Seriously people, where did I put my wine?Flatout Artisan Thin Crust FlatbreadsWhile the first batch of pizzas were cooking, my mom had the brilliant idea of taking two Flatout Thin Crust Artisan Flatbreads, stuffing them with all kinds of goodies, and crimping the edges shut to make a Stromboli. It worked perfectly. My husband was giddy with excitement.Flatout Artisan Thin Crust FlatbreadsThe Flatout Thin Crust Artisan Flatbreads are pre-cooked, of course, and not frozen, so it took only six minutes in the oven before the pizzas were done and looking delicious. Oh, and I found my wine.Flatout Artisan Thin Crust FlatbreadsAnother ingenious idea from my mom: dessert pizzas. But not just any dessert pizzas. These were tasty little tarts cut into triangles and crimped shut like the strombolis we’d made earlier. We brushed the top with a little egg white (so they’d bake nice and golden brown) and sprinkled them with sugar (because sugar is awesome). You know what else is awesome?

I could describe them, but I’ll let this picture do that for me.Flatout Artisan Thin Crust FlatbreadsSo there you have it. One Christmas pizza party in the books with a little help from Flatout Thin Crust Artisan Pizza Flatbreads … and wine. The gathering was such a success, we’re thinking about making it an annual tradition!
