Chicks and Love Flatbread Baking Instructions

Option #1: With Pizza Stone (This is the Chicks’ preferred method!)

  1. Position oven rack to the lowest level in the oven.
  2. Position pizza stone onto center of the oven rack.
  3. Preheat oven at 475 degrees for 45 minutes. (NEVER put a cold pizza stone into a hot oven! The stone will break!)
  4. Place crust onto a cutting board. LIGHTLY brush entire crust with olive oil.
  5. Top with desired toppings. Sauce, then cheese, then toppings. The Chicks recommend no more than 3 toppings.)
  6. Gently slide flatbread onto preheated pizza stone.
  7. Bake for 3-6 minutes or until toppings are hot, cheese is melted and bottom of the crust is crispy and light brown.
  8. Garnish with salt, black pepper and garlic chives (optional)

Option #2: No Pizza Stone in Oven or Toaster Oven

  1. Position oven rack to the MIDDLE level in the oven.
  2. Preheat oven at 475 degrees for 30 minutes.
  3. Place crust onto a cutting board. LIGHTLY brush entire crust with olive oil.
  4. Top with desired toppings. Sauce, then cheese, then toppings. The Chicks recommend no more than 3 toppings.)
  5. Gently slide flatbread off the cutting board, onto center of the middle baking rack, in the preheated oven.
  6. Bake for 5-10 minutes in convection, 10-15 min in regular oven or until toppings are hot, cheese is melted and the bottom of the crust is crispy and light brown.
  7. Garnish with salt, black pepper (optional)

Option #3: On Grill

  1. Preheat COVERED grill on high heat for 30 minutes. Ultimately, you want it to be 450 degrees, like an OVEN!
  2. Turn down to low heat and KEEP LID ON.
  3. Place crust onto a cutting board. LIGHTLY brush entire crust with olive oil.
  4. Top with desired toppings. Sauce, then cheese, then toppings. The Chicks recommend no more than 3 toppings.)
  5. Gently slide flatbread onto preheated grill.
  6. Bake for 3-6 minutes or until toppings are hot, cheese is melted and the bottom of the crust is crispy and light brown.
  7. Garnish with salt, black pepper and garlic chives (optional)

Using Eggs for Topping:

  1. Do NOT use convection! Bake according to directions listed above.
  2. Crack egg in the center of the flatbread, when adding the toppings. It’s best if the egg sits directly on top of the crust (as a single layer) and not on top of other toppings.
  3. When pizza is done & egg is cooked sunny side up, BUST open the egg, with a fork, and smear it all over the pizza!
  4. Garnish with salt, black pepper and garlic chives (optional)
  5. If the egg is not cooked, but the crust & toppings are done, take the pizza out of the oven and BUST and smear the egg all over the pizza, and put back in the oven for 30-60 seconds.

Suggestions for Toppings:

  • Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce
  • Fresh Mozzarella cheese torn in half inch pieces
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Eggs
  • Hobbs Pepperoni*
  • Hobbs Applewood Smoked Bacon*
  • Seasonal Vegetables, Fresh Spinach, Corn, Mushrooms, Grilled/ Caramelized Onions, Roasted Red Peppers,
  • White Truffle Oil
  • Flavored Vinegars

*Can be purchased from Chicks and Love $10/lb.

Note: Most toppings, except fresh veggies can be stored in the freezer for making pizzas at a later date!
