Dinner-and-a-movie nights are a guaranteed winning combination with my clan. They solidify family bonds; cost much less going out (priced movie popcorn and coke lately?), and feel like a Big Event without leaving home.

They’re the stuff of family memories!


Saturday night we rented a movie (or two or three) and made pizzas using a new product called Flatout Flatbread Thin Crust Flatbreads Artisan Pizza in Spicy Italian, Rustic White, and Heritage Wheat flavors and threw a party with a mustache theme. [My kids are crazy wild about mustache stuff. I’m not sure how facial hair—fake facial hair—has become a such trend, but it has; we’re fans.]





With 9 of us living here, it’s hard to make everyone happy at mealtime. I just don’t have time to cater to so many tastes. I considered creating a custom pizza with a movie theme, but then I realized that individual crusts means that everyone gets exactly what they want.

I’m a fan of mushrooms. A big fan. (Apparently I failed somewhere along the way because most of my kids don’t like them.) I rarely even buy them because seriously, who wants to hear the complaints? (Not me.) My pizza had lots of mushrooms. The daughter who’s obsessed with pepperoni got as much as she wanted without others having more than they wanted.

Our other toppings included fresh pressed garlic; sliced Roma tomatoes; bowls of Mozzarella, cheddar, and a 5-cheese pizza blend; freshly chopped oregano; and pork sausage.




Flatout Flatbread pizzas are easy to make: pre-bake for 4-5 minutes, add your toppings, and then return to the oven for an additional 3-4 minutes. The back of the packages contain interesting recipes like a Salad Pizza with pears and a Dessert Pizza with hazelnut chocolate spread (Nutella) with raspberries. Yum.

Because they’re quick to make, easy to customize individually, and the kids can do it themselves, I’m sure we’ll be planning a lot of dinner-and-a-movie nights with Flatout Flatbread pizzas in the future.

Have you tried them? What’s your favorite family night movie?
