One of our favorite dinner party meals is our halfway homemade Italian Flatbread Pizza recipe using Mutti Pomodora Sauces for Pizza and Nana’s leftover meatballs. Pairing Nana’s meatballs with Mutti’s Sauces for Pizza allows us to create a delicious, restaurant-quality recipe that saves us a ton of time on preparation. Mutti’s regionally inspired flavors help us share a taste of different Italian cities famous for their distinct pizza styles while paying tribute to our Italian heritage.

The Secret to Italian Flatbread Pizzas
While it may seem easier to grab minced garlic, dried basil, and other grab-and-go spices, the secret to these Italian Flatbread Pizzas is to always choose fresh ingredients. Mimi and Nana have always taught us to create recipes with love. While choosing fresh ingredients may involve a few extra steps, your guests will marvel at the burst of flavor in every bite.
How to Serve Italian Flatbread Pizza
While there is no right or wrong way to serve Italian Flatbread Pizza, we love incorporating our entrees into our tablescape to add an extra interest to the overall design. One of the best ways to incorporate flatbread into a tablescape centerpiece is to serve it on wooden cutting boards and serve family-style. Set the table with Stoneware Dinner Plates and give your guests the feeling of “home” by serving themselves.
