Flatbread Pizza with Bacon, Fried Egg and Spinach

A few weeks ago I had flatbread as an appetizer at a restaurant and didn’t really enjoy it. The edges lacked crunch and the middle was too thin for my preference.

So I decided to make my own. I always knew flatbread wasn’t too hard to make. I just didn’t get around to it until now.

Once I made the flatbread, I rummaged around the fridge for toppings. Mozzarella cheese, bacon and spinach. And Mr. K loves when flatbreads are served with a cracked egg on top, so I made sure to include that as well.

I was pretty happy with how this flatbread pizza came out. The crust was super crunchy and not too thin. The spinach and bacon made a delicious combination. And fried eggs are good on almost anything.

As a quick reminder, there’s still time to enter my mug cake mix and mug set giveaway here.

Flatbread Dough

  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water 100-110F


  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • About 8-10 pieces of small fresh spinach leaves
  • 2 medium eggs


  • Add flour, yeast and salt to bowl of stand mixer. Add oil and water and use dough attachment to mix until dough forms a ball. Knead on medium speed for about 5 minutes.
  • Lightly oil large glass bowl and place dough ball in. Cover lightly with towel or plastic wrap and let rise until double the volume about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Split dough into two pieces. Roll out into thin long ovals, about 1 1/2 feet long. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Cook bacon strips about halfway. Slice into 1 inch wide pieces. Add spinach leaves into the oil and cook for a few seconds, just so it begins to start cooking but is still mostly raw.
  • Spread mozzarella cheese across surface. Place pieces of bacon and spinach on top of cheese. Crack 2 eggs on top. Bake for about 15 minutes until crust is brown and egg white is cooked.

  1. Ooh looks yummy! I love the eggs on top 🙂 Did you use a regular baking sheet or a special flatbread stone?

    • I used a regular baking sheet. I have a stone which I usually use but I was too lazy to take it out and it still worked well on the regular baking sheet.

  2. Looks great, added goats cheese would taste really nice with this!:)
