Lately, I’ve felt like I’ve been in a bit of a flavor slump when it comes to pizza.

Perhaps it’s the frozen pepperoni pizzas or the fact that I haven’t actually gone out to get some crafty, elegant pizza lately… I really need to get out of the house more people.

Of course, with about 5 million events coming up in the next two months, getting out of the house is pretty darn tough.

I feel like I’ve been chained to either my desk or my kitchen lately, and it’s seriously putting a damper on my creative spark.

When I made this recipe though, that creative spark started to sizzle once again!

This pulled pork flatbread is just PACKED with flavor.

It starts with my favorite Tequila Lime Pulled Pork recipe that infuses the pork with boozy lime flavor (don’t worry, the alcohol is cooked out when you make it, so it’s a-ok for the kiddos).

You’ll use some of the recipe for this flatbread, but you’ll have more leftover to make tacos, enchiladas, and more the next day!

This delicious and tender pulled pork gets paired with a grilled tomatillo salsa to bring out spicy and charred notes from the grill.

A bite of red onion with the fresh zing of pico de gallo and avocado gives a burst of so much freshness.

Finally, what’s a flatbread without cheese?! Monterey Jack is the ideal cheese for this flatbread recipe, and it makes for the right flavor to bring together every single element on the golden baked crust.

Personally, I love to pair up this flatbread with some cold, bright beers or even margaritas.

No matter when you serve up this flatbread, you’ll have a party in your mouth, even if you aren’t hosting one in your house.
