Time for an Elf party with #flatoutpizza

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

It’s a much-anticipated day. No, not Christmas (although that is too) – my sister’s ELF party!

Every year, she throws an ELF-themed holiday party. Lots of yummy foods – like twirly-swirly gumdrop and candy-cane forest cupcakes. Christmas decor and music.

Costumes encouraged. Practically required. (I won best costume last year with my light-up Elf-apron!).

And of course, the obligatory watching of ELF the Movie. (We love it when someone attends who has never seen it before!).

It’s an all-ages (but girls-only) party and a great way to celebrate the season! But no cotton-headed ninny muggins allowed!

I bought my sister some whimsical, printed ELF sayings and framed them to go with the party theme! Plus, a ton of candy to make Candy Kebobs, because after all an elf’s four main food groups are: Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corns, Syrup!

This year, I called my sister up and said, “I’ve got a surprise for you!” Then I told her that her ELF party was also going to be a Flatout Flatbread party too!

image

I wasn’t sure how she would take that, since she’s a real-life chef and a genius in the kitchen. But she jumped right into the idea and had so many inspirational combos for topping our flatbread pizza crusts!!

Flatout Flatbreads are easy and quick for holiday gatherings, so actually she told me later the Flatbreads were a lifesaver because she’d had a busy week! I guess even chefs need a break sometimes!

Each package of Flatbreads contains six crusts – so you can make six pizzas! And they cook up in about six minutes! If you’re in a rush for a holiday meal, grab some Flatout Flatbreads and it’ll look like you spent a lot of time thinking about what to serve! (Plus, 7 grams of protein in each crust – that’s really great!).

There are four flavors: Rustic White, Spicy Italian, Heritage Wheat, Rosemary & Olive Oil. We got to try all but the last one. Here’s my favorite pizza recipe from the night:

RUSTIC ARTICHOKE & RED PEPPER PIZZA

  • Take one Flatout Flatbread Pizza in Rustic Wheat.
  • Brush with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle cheese on top.
  • Arrange marinated artichoke hearts on top of the cheese (keep in mind how you plan to cut the pizza for placement as they don’t cut too well!).
  • Sprinkle chopped red pepper (marinated or fresh) around the pizza for color and flavor!
  • Bake six minutes! Serve!

We also enjoyed a Heritage White with Alfredo Sauce and Pesto and Spicy Italian with Pepperoni and Banana Pepper pizzas! YUM!

We baked ours in the oven, but they would taste fantastic on the grill too! These pizzas were so fun to make… and they were gobbled up in seconds by us hungry ELF-lovin’ gals!

Flatout Flatbreads are fun for all ages – from 1-92!

I would be one of those newbies that has never seen ELF. It does sound like you had a great time. Great way to integrate something new into a themed party.

I too love Elf and your sister’s t-shirt. That sounds like such a fun annual party. The flat bread looks tasty too.
