California Club Flatbread

If you’ve followed along for a while, you know we are ALLLLLL about a good copycat recipe – and this California Club Flatbread is no joke. This is one of my favorite appetizers at BJ’s brewery, but my pregnant heart needed it at home. And wayyyyyy more often. With just a few simple steps, you can make it easily at home, too!



Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. While your oven is pre-heating to 350 degrees, chop your veggies/chicken.


I love using fresh ingredients, but you could easily substitute dried parsley and bacon bits instead! Top each flatbread with an equal amount of ingredients and bake for 6-8 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the edges start to brown. When it’s finished, top with a drizzle of garlic aioli (it also tastes REALLY good with our homemade spicy aioli).

While it may look like these are mini pizzas, they don’t have any sauce. The first step is to brush your flatbread with olive oil (you can use these pita flatbreads like I did, or they also sell it in longer rectangles at most stores, too).
