Easy Homemade Pizza Recipe for Family Movie Night

We had this tradition going where every Friday night was movie night with Graham (Davis is still a little too young).  We would generally have pizza or something else easy for a meal and then settle in with popcorn.  The sad news is that since Graham started Kindergarten we are pushed to have time to do this because he is so tired.  Graham is generally ready for bed as soon as dinner is over (poor fella).  So, last Friday we made it a point to have a fun family movie night and even made a theme out of it.  We were watching The Lorax so I went with the movie for my inspiration.

We’ve been fans of Flatout bread for several months now.  I stumbled across it in the grocery store and loved that it had very few carbs and low calories and quickly started using it for my lunches.  Graham even enjoys his sandwiches in the Flatout bread.  Flatout now has new Thin Crust Flatbreads that are perfect for creating pizzas.  You don’t have to worry about making the dough.  Just bake, add ingredients, bake a little longer and eat!  I have yet to try a Flatout bread that we do not like.  The new Thin Crusts are offered in Spicy Italian, Rustic White and Heritage Wheat.  We went with the Heritage Wheat since we tend to buy whole wheat products.  With 7 grams of protein, 140 calories and a price point of about $2.98 (Walmart) these are fantastic for many reasons.  Here are two new reasons why we love them!

The Lorax Pizza

  • 1 Flatout Thin Crust Flatbread per pizza

When you have devoured your Lorax pizza, make sure to leave room for a little Truffula Tree Dessert Pizza!  This was a hit with everyone (of course).

Whatever you have planned, making pizza just got a whole lot easier using the Flatout Thin Crust Flatbreads!  My own husband, who will tell you himself he is not a huge pizza fan, told me he really liked these.  Score!  And to think, I’ve been slaving over whole wheat pizza crusts to find one he likes.  Ha.

  1. I’ve gotten the oval shaped ones. I think Costco is where I got them. I’ve had fajita with them. They are really good and better for you than most brands.

  2. OMGosh the boys would love both of these! I will have to make thanks sweetie!

    OK question how do you have the Pin It Button pop up on your pictures? I would love to do that.

  3. Oh how cute! We love flat out bread in our home:)
