This post is an entry to a contest sponsored by Real California Milk, but all opinions are my own.
With summer just around the corner, my Pinterest is filling up with snack ideas perfect for backyard grilling parties. From tropical twists on guacamole to various pasta salads, it seems we are all longing for long summer nights, surrounded by friends and good food. And this veggie Mediterranean flatbread deserves to be a part of these summertime get-together’s. Just picture it: the bold, tangy flavors of sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes combined with creamy, melty cheese atop a perfectly crunchy whole wheat crust and then drizzled with a refreshing mint-based tzatziki sauce.
One of the great things about both the flatbread and tzatziki sauce is that they are made using Real California Dairy products. With Real California Dairy products you can rest assured that they are made with 100% Real California Milk – no mystery ingredients here! So next time you are at the store, keep an eye out for the Real California Dairy seal. Another added bonus: California Yogurt and Cheese are great sources of protein to keep you full longer.
So onto the food! Start with whole wheat pizza crust rolled out nice and thin into a rectangle. Place dough on a large sheet pan that has been generously sprayed with olive oil cooking spray (or you can use parchment paper instead). Lightly brush extra virgin olive oil over the crust and sprinkle on basil and garlic powder. Top with 1-2 cups of shredded Real California mozzarella cheese, ½ – 1 cup Real California feta cheese, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and shredded kale. Place in 500°F oven and cook for 5 min. Turn sheet pan and cook another 5-7 minutes or until the bottom is nice and brown.
While flatbread is cooking, combine 1 diced cucumber in food processor along with Real California Yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, garlic, salt, and mint leaves. Pulse until nice and smooth.
Slice flatbread into squares and drizzle with tzatziki sauce. Share and enjoy!
So here’s a toast to sharing good food made from wholesome ingredients with your friends and family this summer! (as well as in Spring, Fall, and Winter 😉 )

It looks absolutely gorgeous! I love the flavours and it would be perfect to serve at a summer party.
Thank you 🙂 Right?! I can’t wait to re-make it when the weather is finally warm out.
Oh ho – this is SO my kind of recipe! Pinning this baby 🙂 (By the way, welcome to Recipe ReDux – great to have you!)
Thank you! I’m excited to be a part of it 🙂
I used to work at a Greek restaurant…and went to Greece on my honeymoon. So I ADORE Greek food. This will totally be on my table soon. I’ve never seen nutmeg in tzatziki. Great idea – do you know if that’s traditional? So curious!
I’m so jealous! I’ve always wanted to visit – it looks so beautiful there! Let me know what you think when you try it out 🙂 No, traditionally it isn’t but Nutmeg is a spice found in Greek cuisine so I figured I’d try it out. I ended up liking the subtle depth it gives the sauce so I kept it in the recipe. Hope you enjoy 🙂
