PB&B Flatbread Pizza

No, that wasn't a typo.  I'm not talking about peanut butter and jelly here.  So, what does the "B" stand for?  Wait for it...


You're probably thinking about Elvis right now since he was known for peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwiches.  I can't say that I've ever had all 3 together, but I did grow up eating peanut butter and bacon on toast and putting peanut butter on bananas.  Basically, there was a lot of peanut butter in my childhood.

My husband had never heard of eating peanut butter and bacon together (except for Elvis) until he met me.  Wow, was he missing out!  The grease from the bacon complements the peanut butter so well.  It's such a treat for breakfast or a snack.

With my recent accidental success at making flatbread, I decided that nothing could be better than flatbread topped with peanut butter and bacon.  So, here you have it, my new recipe for PB&B Flatbread Pizza.  You're welcome.

PB&B Flatbread Pizza

1 flatbread (get the recipe for my whole wheat flatbread)
1 tbsp peanut butter
2 slices bacon

Cook the bacon in a frying pan until very crisp.  Then, transfer the bacon to a paper towel so that excess grease can drip off.

Heat the flatbread in the microwave for 10 seconds to warm it up.  Spread the peanut butter on top of the flatbread (this is your "pizza sauce").  Crumble the cooled bacon on top of the peanut butter.  Cut the pizza into 6 pieces and enjoy!

This is a great, easy breakfast or snack.  It's not the healthiest, but it'll "stick with you" as my mom always says, meaning, you won't be hungry for awhile because of the healthy carbs and all the fat from the peanut butter and bacon.  If you want to make it healthier, choose natural peanut butter or almond butter.  Substituting turkey bacon would also definitely cut down on the grease factor.  And, if you don't have any flatbread on hand, toast will do.  May I suggest using my recipe for Whole Wheat Bread?

Happy eating!
