If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love making these flatbreads. Some of my (and yours!) favorites have been the Pesto Flatbread Pizza, Fall Flatbread and BBQ Chicken Pineapple Flatbread. They make for a delicious weeknight dinner that you can usually get everyone on board with! This Butternut Bacon flatbread is made using a base of roasted butternut squash puree that’s super simple. The mix of the two cheeses adds a delicious touch to it too.

The best part about this flatbread is it comes together in less than 30 minutes, full of flavor and perfect for an easy weeknight dinner.

How to store your flatbread:

I don’t see you having leftovers, but if you do then it’s great to reheat the next day! Store any leftover flatbread in a sealed container in the fridge to keep fresh. When reheating it, you can easily do that in the microwave or the air fryer.

If you want to pair your flatbread, try doing this:

  • Serve it as an appetizer among other apps for a delicious spread!
  • Fix a fall side salad to go along with the flatbread for a more complete meal.
  • Top it with additional meats for more protein.

FAQs

Can I use a different cheese?

I’ve only made this with shredded mozzarella and gorgonzola crumbles! If you don’t want to use the gorgonzola, you can use all shredded mozzarella.

Do I have to use this on top of naan?

No! You can use any flatbread, pizza crust or cauliflower crust if you’d like.
