Hey, guys! Today's post is a nom-nom personal-sized pizza recipe that's a copycat from a long-gone restaurant in Memphis. It's a flatbread pizza with a garlicky, herby, olive oil base, topped with tart red onions and dollops of creamy goat cheese. These little pizzas are quick and easy and perfect as appetizers or to serve on game day. They also make for a quick and easy meatless dinner option, too!


These little pizzas came from a restaurant named Maxwell's that I used to love as a teenager. It was the kind of place in the Cooper-Young area that served edible flowers on its salads. πŸ€“/😎


I remember being a little bewildered looking at the fancy menu and just ordering the most familiar item: pizza.


When it came I was a little disappointed. This didn't look like any pizza I was familiar with, but I ate it anyway, and I was in love! The little bites of chewy/tart/creamy sold me and I became a semi-regular just for this. Sadly, Maxwell's closed when I was in my early 20's but I've often thought about this pizza over the years.


I'm sure they made theirs from scratch with a flatbread dough, but I remember it being very similar to a Pita, so I'm using Greek-style pita bread for the base. These are fluffier than the Middle-Eastern versions that have a pocket in the middle and these are sold uncut.

These pizzas are as easy as mixing the "sauce" up, assembling it, and popping it in the oven. You'll have a delish dinner in about 10 minutes!
