Like I said on Sunday, I was so excited to make this flatbread! It’s a restaurant recreation that was just amazing.

It didn’t take very long to whip up either! About 20 minutes total, which is pretty darn quick when your hungry for pizza.

I can’t decide what the best part about the pizza is. The avocado? The cheddar cheese? Maybe the BACON. I almost never buy bacon anymore, only for special recipe instances such as this. It was a fabulous little treat!

Wait, did I just say bacon was better than avocado? I think I’ll take that back.

I made this flatbread as a double batch, but the recipe above is about what you’d need for a single batch. Maybe a little extra chicken and bacon. But that’s not a bad way to go either. Cheese was also an estimate, but I think everyone likes a different amount of cheese on their pizzas anyhow!

I used my homemade whole wheat crust recipe for this flatbread.

And, just because it’s been a while, how about a little What I Ate Wednesday for you!


This has been on major repeat for breakfast the last couple of weeks. Yes, weeks! I Love my eggs and avocado I guess! With toast and ham.


I also have been doing a lot of chicken mixes for lunch. I was randomly craving peas the other day, and dumped in a serving with my chicken. Surprisingly delicious. So, it’s been coming with me to work the last few days too! It’s pictured with a banana, baby carrots, and homemade classic hummus made with jalapenos and spinach.

Unpictured are two cranberry muffins I enjoyed as a morning snack.

Dinner was leftovers of the wonderful flatbread pictured above!


My sweet tooth went away for a while, but has been back in action full force. In attempts to try and steer away from ice cream and other goodies, I put this concoction together and loved it. Unsweetened almond milk (I buy Silk brand, here’s why) and a dropper full of NuNatural’s Chocolate flavored liquid stevia. So delicious! I’m a big fan of NuNatural’s products, you should definitely check them out.
