Imitation Crab Flatbread Pizza
This turned out better than I ever expected! This was one of those recipe creations that I came up with laying in bed one night. I wish everyone could taste this as it was so good! Using Imitation Crab made it very inexpensive, however, if you live where crab won’t bankrupt you then use freshly cooked crab!
Brush all of the vegetable oil over the bottom
of a large baking sheet.Sprinkle evenly with the salt.
Lay the flatbread on the pan.
Combine the butter, olive oil and garlic powder in a small bowl.
Brush the butter mixture over the
flatbread completely covering the tops.
Sprinkle the flatbread with the freshly grated parmesan cheese.
Stack the spinach leaves on top of each other with stems removed.
Slice the pile of spinach Julienne style.
Place the spinach pieces on the flatbread.
Place the cut up pieces of tomatoes on top.
Place the cut up chunks of imitation crab on top.
Make sure the crab is chunks or they will dry out when you bake them.
Sprinkle evenly with the mozzarella cheese.
Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Remove each pizza to a serving plate and enjoy!

You are so welcome!
It does look good! We’ve been up for hours and had a super early breakfast, so Hubby just asked what was for lunch. I’ve got everything to make this except spinach leaves. But I do have Swiss Chard that I could substitute! 🙂
Definitely and if you have fresh basil even better! We had ours for lunch yesterday too! Perfect size pizza for lunch.
Awe, yes! Basil. Have some in a glass on the counter! 🙂
Perfect it will definitely taste great with basil. Enjoy!
Wow! I am definitely gonna try this!! I can almost smell it!
You will be a rock star when your family tastes this!
Yes! I will make it next weekend or so! Will let you know!
looking very tasty
Thank you delicious with basil too!
This looks phenomenal! I recently went to michigan a few weeks ago where my grandma makes something similar, and I have been craving them ever since. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
You’re welcome! Enjoy!
I was just craving crab pizza the other day and nowhere to get it here, I didn’t think of the possibility of making it with imitation…this sounds amazing! And “This was one of those recipe creations that I came up with laying in bed one night” – you crack me up!!
I do my best thinking in bed…lol Thanks and have a great week!
Btw, I baked chocolate scones today. Not sure it is from yours or other blogger but the recipe was great. everything turn out good:)
Wonderful creation, well done!
Never thought to use crab this way. It is a great ingredient.
That looks good. Thanks for sharing.
Looks so wonderful!
I actually have a guilty fondness for artificial crab–but, yeah, almost go with the real thing when you can.
Umm, make that “almost.”
Wow, looks excellent! Yum!❤️
Thank you it is a recipe that is requested all the time!l
What a clever idea you had here Diane.
Thank you Linda we both went crazy over it! I’m thinking regular or fruit pizza as well.
You are innovative Diane!
Aw thanks Linda!
Now THAT looks yummy!!
Thanks! It was as good as Red Lobster’s “Lobster Pizza”.
I’ve never been to red lobster lol.
It’s a seafood restaurant.
I know what it is I just never been lol.
Oh if you ever get a chance go. It is my favorite seafood restaurant because they always serve fresh and not frozen seafood, Where I live that doesn’t ever happen!
Want to make this.
You won’t regret it! Easy and delicious!
Yes, I have not gotten to the store, but have the ingredients on my list when I do.
Yummy, looks really inviting
