  • 1 naan or pita flatbread
  • 3 TBSP pizza sauce or thick spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes optional
  • 1/8 tsp of Italian blend seasoning
  • 1-2 tsp sweet balsamic glaze
  • fresh basil for topping


  1. Preheat oven (or toaster oven!) to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spread flatbread with sauce and top with freshly grated mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. 
  3. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning on top and bake for 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly!
  4. Top with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and a sprinkling of fresh basil. Yum!

Recipe Notes

Feel free to pick up some balsamic glaze at the grocery store (you can find it near the balsamic vinegar and comes in a few tasty varieties) or make your own.

For homemade balsamic glaze, mix 1 cup of your favorite balsamic vinegar with 1/4 cup brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer until reduced by half, approx. 20 minutes. Sauce will thicken a bit more as it cools. Cool and store in the fridge for all your drizzling needs!
