1. Hummus Chickpea Flatbread Pizza
Hummus is a great alternative to traditional tomato sauce on a flatbread pizza. Simply spread a generous layer of hummus on the flatbread, then top it with cooked chickpeas and vegan shredded cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the chickpeas are slightly crispy.

3. No Sauce Flatbread Pizza
This flatbread pizza takes a deconstructed approach to the classic pizza. Instead of using sauce, blistered cherry tomatoes are placed on top of the vegan shredded cheese. Simply drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle some salt and pepper over the tomatoes and cheese, and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly. This pizza is perfect for those who want a lighter and simpler pizza.

8. Miso and Shishito Peppers
This flatbread uses sweet miso paste as the base and is topped with blistered shishito peppers and vegan cheese. Shishito peppers are small, slender green peppers that are slightly sweet and usually mild in heat. When roasted or blistered, they develop a smoky flavor that pairs perfectly with the miso and cheese.
9. Refried Beans
For a south-of-the-border twist, spread refried beans over the flatbread instead of pizza sauce, then top with black beans, diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, and vegan shredded cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, then garnish with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice if desired.
