Let’s Review the April Baking Challenge

April 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Homemade Flatbread Pizza

During a particularly challenging and unpredictable month for us all, you took the April 2020 challenge and ran with it. Before the month started, I quickly switched the recipe so this challenge was more convenient to our circumstances. And we all (myself included) certainly enjoyed taking on the flatbread pizza baking project! Your toppings were creative, the flatbreads looked incredible, and many of you were pleasantly surprised with the recipe’s simplicity. I told you yeast doesn’t have to be scary. 🙂

You inspired me with all of your flatbread toppings! Two favorites included: (1) goat cheese, sautéed mushrooms, fresh arugula, and a drizzle of reduced balsamic and (2) homemade alfredo sauce, cooked chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh basil. YUM!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Megan:

“What a great recipe! This dough came together quickly and was very easy to work with. I didn’t need a rolling pin, and was able to shape the soft dough with just my hands. The added garlic and Italian seasoning in the dough pushed the taste over the top! I’ll definitely be making this again, especially if I’m short on time but still want something fresh and homemade. Wonderful as always, Sally!”

We gathered as many homemade flatbread photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to help guarantee your photo will be included!)

  1. Oh, yum! Those mini galettes look so cute, and delicious. I’ve made your apple caramel galette, and it was amazing; I’d love to make it in miniature versions 😀

  2. Can’t wait for your mini galettes! They look delicious…..will be making them as soon as possible 😀

  3. Can’t wait for this May’s challenge! I love how those mini galettes look ♡
    As usual, I’m planning my birthday approximately 4 months ahead, and I was like “I think I’ll make Sally’s macarons, and Sally’s choux pastry, and something else petite four of Sally’s for my tea party…”
    And that something else will be your mini galettes! Thank you for this extraordinary blog, best wishes 🙂

  4. I wanted to let you know that the flatbread pizza works perfectly well for camping. I throw the flour, salt, and yeast in a jar and keep it in the camper refrigerator. When it’s time to make it, I just add the warm water and oil , let it rise and bake it. The first version was elk sausage and mozzarella. This week, we will be trying new toppings. Our camper slides in the back of a pickup so it’s quite small but we can still make pizza! Thanks, Sally.

  5. Yay, the galettes seem perfect for spring and summer fruit! And those pics of flatbreads have me drooling. I’m really looking forward to making them when I can get my hands on some yeast again.

  6. I can’t wait to make these fruit galettes! They look so easy and delicious! I do have a question: can you use can pie filling? I have several cans of fruit pie filling to use.

  7. They were delicious and loved by everyone! Definitely will be a staple in our house!

  8. Sally,

    Is there an alternate recipe this month? I can’t seem to find where you mention the alternate option.

    Thanks!

  9. Just finished baking these and they’re absolutely delicious! I used your flaky pie crust and my husband said it’s the best pie crust he’s ever had. Also, he *hates* fruit but LOVED these!

  10. Just finished baking these! We used blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries for the filling. They turned out fantastic. We’ll definitely make them again. We may add more than a quarter cup in each one next time though.

  11. These where super yummy! I’ve made these twice and both times came out amazing! Thank you for a great recipe and I am so excited to sign up for this challenge. Thanks Sally!

  12. I made these for the challenge and honestly wasn’t so sure about how they would taste. I’m more of a chocolate person than a fruit dessert person, but these were delicious! I used strawberries, apples, and blueberries and they were amazing! Definitely recommend and I would for sure make them again!

  13. Just made these roday! Me and my partner loved them will be making them again for sure

  14. Made these and my husband kept asking if there were more! He added Ok if you make these any time. Really loved the addition of whipped cream to set them off. Kind of unusual for him as he says most things don’t have enough chocolate. People ask me where I get my recipes and I have to admit when I pin a recipe more often than not it takes me to your website! Thanks!

  15. Thoroughly enjoyed these mini fruit galettes for Memorial Day Brunch this morning with some lightly whipped cream. I will always remember these because they are the last thing I will be baking in my vintage 1970 Tappan ovens. It has been temperamental for some time but decided this bake would be its last. Thank you for the challenge.

  16. So delicious and it was a total learning experience with the crust. I should have rolled it out better and pinched it more to have the appearance down right, but hey practice makes perfect right? For my first crust I don’t think I did too bad. I will definitely make it again .

  17. I was a little hesitant about trying to make the pie dough. I made the all butter though. It came together so nice way! I made a mixed berry compote for the filling. I also used sugar in the raw on the crust. This is a wonderful recipe and one I will tuck in my recipe box for the future.

With kitchen-tested quality recipes and step-by-step tutorials, my goal is to give you the confidence to bake and cook from scratch.
