15 Minute Italian Sausage Flatbread Pizza a delicious twist on a classic pizza recipe. Pizza dough is replaced by naan bread and topped with spicy Italian sausage fresh veggies, Italian seasoning and mozzarella cheese.


  • 1 pound, ground Italian pork sausage
  • 1 cup zucchini, diced
  • 1 cup bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 6 pre-made flatbreads (naan) *
  • 1 12 ounce jar pizza sauce
  • Italian seasoning - to taste
  • 2 cups shredded low-moisture mozzarella cheese

** OPTIONAL - red pepper flakes and fresh basil for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground sausage and cook until no longer pink (160°F). Stir frequently.
  3. Add diced zucchini,  bell pepper and red onion to cooked sausage. Cook for about 1 minute, or until tender-crisp (do not overcook). Remove sausage mixture from heat and set aside.
  4. Apply an even layer of pizza sauce to each of your flatbreads. Spread sauce to the edge. Sprinkle the spread sauce with Italian seasoning.
  5. Top each flatbread with about 1/2 cup of sausage mixture.  Do not overload the flatbread.
  6. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the sausage and veggies. If using, top cheese with red pepper flakes.
  7. For Oven: Bake pizza at 425°F for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and studded with golden-brown bubbles. Serve immediately.  For Air Fryer: Set air fryer to 400 degrees. Cook flatbread pizza for 3-4 minutes and remove. Keep an eye on it as it cooks quickly.


flatbread can be purchased at most grocery stores - garlic flavored is recommended
