Beef and Pepper Flatbread ($10 meal)

Flatbread 3

Are you loving the $10 meals?

I had such a great time creating them for Sweetbay Supermarket. All the recipes needed to be tasty, easy, family friendly AND $10 or under. And this Beef and Flatbread Pizza is no exception.
Don’t get sucked into the freezer department to pick up a frozen pizza. Those are so boring.
I love using Naan Flatbread as my pizza crust base. There is no messing around with pizza dough, it tastes delicious and it gets nice and crunch on the bottom. It’s a win win situation.
If you ask me, pasta is the perfect side for pizza. My tomato garlic pasta is not only easy but it is packed with flavor.
Are you sensing a theme here?
Easy and delicious!

Sweetbay Supermarkets Butchers have a tip to cut out some of the fat from ground beef….
“Cook without seasoning. Rinse briefly with hot water in a colander and blot dry. Return to the pan for a minute and add the seasonings to taste.”
