This holiday season I am so excited to work with Wolf Gourmet and tell you all about my new favorite kitchen item. This beautiful countertop oven with a convection option has changed my kitchen life for sure. Ever since I opened the box, I was giddy and excited to move some stuff around my counter to make space for this new kitchen toy. Having an extra oven, especially right before the holidays, can be so great. Plus, it’s nice to have something smaller instead of turning on your regular oven, don’t you think?
The first thing I wanted to make for my family is a flatbread pizza. It’s a great opportunity to get the kids involved and it’s so easy to make together as a family. It’s also a good way to use up things you have in the fridge as toppings.
I had half of a head of white cauliflower and half of a yellow one, a bag of shishito peppers (semi-spicy peppers that I pick up at my local Trader Joe’s), tomatoes, roasted artichoke hearts, smoked mozzarella, smoked Gouda, prosciutto, and flatbread in my fridge. So I decided to put together some fun toppings for my family to try. Can’t wait to share them with you as well.
This oven has such great cooking modes like proof, warm, roast, bake, broil and toast. I used two of the modes for this recipe. I used the roast mode for roasting the cauliflower and shishito peppers and toast for the perfect melted cheese on top after adding the toppings.
Ever since I got the oven, my family has been using it daily for the perfect toast, a roasted whole chicken (yes you can fit a whole chicken in there too), heating things up and more. They said it was the best thing we added to our kitchen, and I couldn’t agree more.

The great thing for these pizzas is that everyone can mix and match the topping combinations and make it fun for the whole family.
After you have added your toppings, the rest is so easy. Place the pizzas on the baking tray with the rack set in it. Select the toasting mode on the oven and select the amount of pizzas you have, up to 4 at a time, it will melt the cheese perfectly. Enjoy.
Our favorite combos we created were:
Pesto, smoked mozzarella cheese, shishito peppers, roasted cauliflower, prosciutto and a sprinkle of Gouda cheese.
Pesto, smoked mozzarella cheese, grilled artichoke hearts, and fresh tomatoes.
