Flatbread Pesto Vegetarian Pizza

Every Friday night at our house is movie + pizza night. Our kids look forward to this all week long. We start with pizza, then get ready for bed, spread blankets on the floor, make popcorn, and watch our movie. We love this tradition so much, and we really hope our kids look forward to it even when they become teenagers!

To kick off the beginning of the holiday season, 2 weekends ago, we had a special Family Movie Night on Friday, followed by an Ugly Sweater Party on Saturday. On the menu both nights was pizza made with Flatout Bread for the crust. We gave it a test run on Friday, and loved it so much that we served it at our party on Saturday.

Here's a few pictures from our Friday night:
 

After pizza, we made gingerbread houses with a kit and candy that I found at Wal-Mart.

Once our masterpiece was complete, we watched two movies- one that was on sale at Wal-Mart, "We Bought a Zoo," followed by our favorite Christmas classic, "Home Alone."
 

And here's some pictures from our Ugly Sweater Party on Saturday night:

I mentioned our party flatbread pizzas in this post,
and promised you more details....

Flatbread Details:
 There are 4 different flavors... Rustic White, Spicy Italian, Heritage Wheat, Rosemary & Olive Oil. The spicy is really spicy, my husband loved it! Each package contains 6 flatbreads, which fed my family of 5 perfectly. They are available for purchase at Wal-Mart.

What I especially love about the crusts is they are dairy free. Our 2 year old son has struggled with dairy his whole life. Whenever I order pizza, I only purchase from companies who have no-dairy crust, and then I ask them to make 1/2 a pizza without cheese. (Sad, I know)! But with these no-dairy crusts, it was extremely easy for me to customize a special personal pizza for our non-dairy son.
 
I made a lot of versions with this flatbread (pepperoni + cheese, pepperoni + bacon + veggies), but my favorite was petso + veggies.

Vegetarian Pesto:
1. Spread about1/4 cup pesto onto uncooked flatbread.
2. Cut and sautee your favorite veggies. I used onions and yellow bell peppers in olive oil. Spread over pesto.
3. Top with mozzarella cheese.
4. Broil for about 5 minutes in the oven.
If you want to try these flatbreads, stay tuned! Next week I am giving away a $50 giftcard to Wal-Mart!

so what do you do about your tradition when say, a ward party interrupts your friday plans? Do you movie when you get home, switch it to saturday, or forego for that week?

btw, I won the Hearts.com give away! I've never won anything and enter a lot of giveaways, so I was totally surprised! thanks for letting all of us know about it!

We also do Friday night family film night but I am so looking forward to when they get a little older, my youngest is two and a bit so it's not always family fun, more like Disney film night every week. I love Disney but I am starting to dream about Nemo! We have bought our own popcorn maker and I am really looking forward to making lots of naughty cakes and popcorn over the Christmas holidays with my Babies. I might have to try the ginger bread house it looks awesome.
