Flatout Snowman Pizza

Filed under: Flatout Fun, Kids, Pizza Pizza! — flatoutnews @ 12:11 pm

It’s cold out there! This winter season, I have been having a lot of fun staying warm indoors.  Check out the Flatout Creation below.  Next time you have company or want to surprise your family with a fun snack or meal, try out our Snowman Pizza. It is absolutely delicious, and best of all, it is fun to decorate, serve, and eat!

All you need:

One Flatout Flatbread

Cooking Scissors or Snowman Cookie Cutter

1/2 Cup Tomato Sauce

1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Olive Oil

Pineapple, Peppers, Olives… anything you prefer for buttons and other snowman features… get creative!

All you need to do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the Flatout Flatbread into one big snowman.  Or, using  snowman/round cookie cutters, you could make smaller snowmen.  It all depends on who the pizza is for/the size you want/how you are serving.  Brush with olive oil.  Cook directly on grate for seven minutes.  Take the snowman/or snowmen out of the oven, and add tomato sauce and cheese.  Cook for five more minutes.  Remove from the oven, and add buttons and facial features to the snowman.  Enjoy!

McDonalds Rolls With It

Filed under: Flatout Newsworthy — flatoutnews @ 12:52 pm

On Jan 15, I posted an entry on a favorite Flatout Creation: the Flatout Burger.  The folks at Flatout take pride in the versatile product, and continuously experiment with different recipes and creations.  As you can probably imagine, that means that everything from fruit, to meats, to fish to treats to anything imaginable have been placed in a Flatout at some point.  The Flatout Burger has been a personal favorite for years. 

Last night, I saw a campaign for McDonald’s Mac Snack Wrap (http://www1.mcdonalds.com/macsnackwrap/#/home), and I was FLATOUT shocked… and FLATOUT excited! It is absolutely wonderful that the fastfood industry is incoroporating tortillas into their sandwich… and rollin’ with it!  Obviously, at Flatout, rollin’ with it is something we’v e been doing- and loving doing – for years.  McDonalds offers a variety of chicken snack wraps (http://www1.mcdonalds.com/snackwrap/index.jsp), but the McDonald’s Mac Snack Wrap is McDonald’s first beef snack wrap. Although McDonalds does not use Flatout Flatbread, we are excited to see that they are having FLATOUT fun!

Flatout Burger

Filed under: Flatout Fun — flatoutnews @ 6:02 pm

Let’s face it, sometimes a cold cut sandwich just isn’t going to cut it…  that’s why when you’re FLATOUT hungry, indulge in the Flatout Burger.   Wrap a burger in a Flatout Artisan FOLD It, and add your favorite condiments.  I prefer sharp cheddar cheese, pickles, onion, lettuce, and tomato.  A dab of katsup and mustard also doesn’t hurt! The mainstream bun doesn’t make the burger… the FOLD It compliments the burger nicely, because it is thick, but thin enough to emphasize the burger’s flavor.  Enjoy!

Pizza POCK It with FOLD It!

Filed under: Pizza Pizza! — flatoutnews @ 10:53 am

PIZZA POCK It with FOLD It! When making it a Flatout meal, you’re probably usually wrappin’ it or open-facin’ it! Flatout Pizza is a popular Flatout creation, especially for those who enjoy a thin crust! Now, for those of you who prefer a thicker crust or a pizza pocket, take your favorite pizza recipe, and instead of using Flatout Flatbread, fold your ingredients into a Flatout FOLD It! While Flatout Flatbread makes a delicious thincrust, Flatout FOLD It is ideal for a Pizza POCK It! Take your pizza recipes, and instead of spreading over the Flatout Flatbread, and popping it in the oven, FOLD your Flatout FOLD It, and pop in the oven! Below is a delicious pizza Flatout Creation you can use to test out the FOLD It pizza alternative:

Pineapple in Paradise Grilled Thin Crust Pizza


 1 Light Italian Herb Flatout

1/2 cup pizza sauce

1 cup shredded Mexican four cheese blend

2 slices deli style ham (sliced in 1″ squares)

4 tablespoons Pineapple tidbits

2 slices Honey roasted ham (sliced in 1″ squares or chopped)


 Lay Flatout FOLD It on nonstick cookie sheet and lightly coat both sides with olive oil cooking spray. Spread pizza sauce over one half or both sides of the Flatout FOLD It, depending on how much sauce flavor you want. Top with ham, pineapple, and cheese on one side of the FOLD It. Fold the FOLD It. The side without the toppings should be folded on top. The bottom of the FOLD It should have the toppings. Place Flatout FOLD It in the oven for 5-7 minutes at 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove and enjoy!
