Flattza®

by Anne Paddock

Pizza or Flatbread…Blah, Blah, Blah……

Flatzza® is a wickedly wholesome and divinely delicious cross between a pizza crust and flatbread. Cover a 12-inch round Flatzza® with tomato or pesto sauce and your favorite toppings and bake until the crust turns a golden brown or bake/grill the Flatzza® (with or without a spray of olive oil) until golden brown and then add toppings, or slice into triangles and serve with hummus or your favorite dip. The options are endless.10547892_10152853388671419_4273510160222767140_o

Either way, Flatzza® is a healthy and tasty alternative to big crust pizzas.Wild_Winter_Vegetable_Pizza

Made of seven sprouted whole grains (red wheat berries, quinoa, oat groats, rye berries, barley, amaranth, and millet) combined with wheat flour, water, sunflower oil, vital wheat gluten, honey, oat fiber, cultured wheat, salt, molasses, and yeast, Flatzza® is dairy, soy and nut-free.

The emphasis is on sprouted whole grains (that are mashed and then mixed into a dough) whose ease of digestion compared with products made with traditional flour is highly valued. That each serving (1/4 of a 12-inch crust or 1.75 ounces) provides 4 grams of protein, 3 grams of dietary fiber, 3 grams of fat, and only 2 grams of sugar makes for a nutritional boost not often found in traditional crusts.Flattza_crusts

Flatzza® can be purchased in the bread section at Sprouts nationwide and at select Whole Foods Markets in the mid-west, or on-line directly from the company’s website:  www.angelicbakehouse.com. A 14 ounce 2-pack of 12-inch crusts is $4.25.Flatzza

The Flatzza® Buddy (a smaller version of the company’s ready-made, sprouted whole grain Flatzza® crust) is also available. Five 2-ounce Buddy crusts are in each 10-ounce package that sells for $4.25. Same recipe, same great taste, and same nutritional value but in a single serving size.
