Cook just until the cheese melts.

Hint: Check the pizza at about the 5 minute mark to check for doneness. Cook an additional minute or two for a crispy pizza.

🧾 Substitutions

  • Goat cheese, cheddar cheese or any other cheese you like- instead of mozzarella cheese.
  • Barbecue sauce - instead of pizza sauce.
  • Small pieces - cut Lavash into fourths for smaller, individual, servings.

📖 Variations

  • Deluxe - make it a deluxe by adding turkey pepperoni, bacon, black olives, bell peppers, diced red onion, and tomato slices are all great topping choices!

I found mine in the ethnic food aisle but I've been told you can also find it in the bakery section or deli section of your supermarket. I went to my stores website and when I typed in what I was looking for it provided the exact aisle location.
