Very Flat Zucchini Flatbread

Working from home, I have the benefit of making lunch in my kitchen.  I don’t have to decide either the night before or early that morning what I will want for lunch.

With plans to go to dinner with friends at an Italian restaurant tonight, I wanted a lunch that would not be heavy.  This restaurant is new to my husband and me, so I want to be hungry enough to sample lots of items on the menu.

When lunchtime came around today, the air had a chill and the sky was overcast.  Definitely not a salad sort of day.  I wondered what I could create that would be warm but not too filling.  We had leftover zucchini and cremini mushrooms from a dinner earlier in the week.  We always have whole wheat wraps and a variety of cheeses in the refrigerator.  Together, I decided I would make an interesting pizza.

My husband, who was working from home today also, shared this lunch with me.  For a quickly thrown together lunch, we both thought it was tasty.  One more thing to add to my “What to eat for lunch today?” list.
