Pumpkin & Spinach Flatbreads with Goat Cheese

A healthy gluten-free flatbread with quinoa flour, this Pumpkin & Spinach Flatbread is topped with fresh pumpkin puree, baby spinach and creamy goat cheese.

I intended to share this recipe last week but I didn't want to overwhelm you with my pumpkin obsession, so I decided to wait. We made this Pumpkin & Spinach Flatbread recipe on a whim and even though Thanksgiving is gone, I felt we can always benefit from more pumpkin. The meal came together with what we had in the fridge, all atop my go-to flatbread recipe, and they turned out to be sensational.

A layer of fresh pumpkin puree serves as the sauce on this gluten-free flatbread recipe. The pumpkin is then covered with a thin green layer of baby spinach. Topped with Italian turkey sausage and sprinkled with creamy goat cheese. A simple, yet decadent combination that turns these fall pizzas into something really special.

Pumpkin & Spinach Flatbreads with Goat Cheese

These flavorful gluten-free flatbreads, are made with two of my favorite ingredients: toasted quinoa flour and quinoa flakes [recipe on page 18 of Baking with Quinoa]. Easy to throw together, quick to bake and perfectly thin and crispy, my quinoa flatbreads are a simple solution to gluten-free pizza crust. Plus with all those healthy toppings, this meal quickly turns into guilt-free pizza that your whole family will enjoy.

The quinoa flatbreads, featured in my new e-cookbook, are packed with nutrients and full of protein. With the added fiber from the pumpkin and iron from the spinach, plus with the choices of using low-fat turkey sausage and goat cheese, you have a balanced and delicious meal on your hands. I'd have to say this Pumpkin & Spinach Flatbread recipe may just be my new go-to pizza alternative.
