I was at the local grocery store when and saw these Kontos Pan Plano Flatbreads and thought they looked interesting and decided to use one of the flatbreads to make a pizza to see what the crust would taste like. The crust was very tasty in my opinion. This was a quick way to make pizza. If anyone is interested, these are the Nutrition Facts and ingredients for the Sweet Onion Pan Plano Flatbread I used for the pizza pictured in my last post. http://www.foodfacts.com/food/Pita%20Bread/Kontons%20Pan%20Plano%20Sweet%20Onion%20Flatbread/48116

I know this forum is based almost all on home pizza making, but if in a pinch for time or not wanting to make your own dough, I would rate these as very good. I know I cheated when I made this pizza, because I didn’t make my own dough, but the flatbread I used to make the pizza, had a better flavor in the crust than some other doughs I have made homemade.

I made a pan flatbread pizza 4/03/2011. The dressings were regular tomato sauce, Polly O mozzarella, Franks’ hot sauce chicken, and salsa. The rim was somewhat crispy and the crust was somewhat soft. Overall I enjoyed this pan flatbread pizza.
There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
