Flatbread bruschetta Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

I love pizza.  And I love making fancy types of pizza-like dinners at home.  I've always been a bread and pasta girl so this recipe was fun to create.

I was approached by Tuttorosso to receive some product and help promote their giveaway they have going on.  I could email quick enough, I was so excited to make a yummy platter of personal style on bruschetta.  I'm not a huge fan of super crunchy crostini's so the bread/pizza option was on my mind!

This recipe was super easy to make and actually pretty quick to make considering most flatbreads or pizzas I make!

Look at that mozzarella!!! Yum!  


Flatbread Bruschetta Pizza with Balsamic Glaze
1 lb log of mozzarella cheese, sliced
1 loaf french bread
1 - 28 oz can Tuttorosso diced tomatoes
5-10 leaves of fresh basil, chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp Italian seasonings
light sprinkle of garlic seasonings

BALSAMIC GLAZE:
1/2 cup balsamic glaze
2 tbsp honey
1 bay leaf
1 tsp garlic seasonings







1.  Cover a flat baking pan in foil and spray with olive oil cooking spray.  Cut the loaf of bread in half leaving a top and a bottom.



2.  Spread Tuttorosso diced tomatoes along inside of bread.  Layer the mozzarella and basil on top then sprinkle the minced garlic, Italian seasonings, and garlic seasonings along the top.




Mozzarella is just such a great cheese to cut! lol



Don't forget the fresh chopped basil, seriously, it really makes a difference.


3.  Put the loaves in the oven for while you coat the balsamic glaze.  On the stovetop, make the glaze by adding the balsamic vinegar, honey, bay leaf, and garlic seasonings and heating to a boil.  Be sure to keep stirring it once warm.  When you bring it to a boil, simmer and remove from heat.



4.  Drizzle over the flatbread bread and bruschetta and replace in the oven for another 20 - 25 minutes or until mozzarella is melting.


ENJOY!

This is the perfect time of year for a nice warm meal!  Tuttorosso is currently doing a big promotion through April 15th on Facebook.  They are giving away 750 Tuttorosoo aprons, 15 copies of Ali's cookbook Inspiralized, 60 of Ali's custom Inspiralizers, and a Grand Prize package that includes an Inspiralizer, a signed copy of Inspiralized, a Tuttososso apron, and a collection of kitchen gadgets in a picnic basket.  And just in case you were wondering, an Inspiralizer is a trip-blade vegetable spiral slicer that cuts up veggies in cool ways that maybe your kid will actually eat.  Seriously, my daughter is in a phase of not wanting to eat anything "out of the box", "Yuck".  Everything is "Yuck" so I bought on of these cool slicers and I can wait to see if she'll eat more zucchini if she thinks it's spaghetti?
