Is Flatbread Different From Pizza?

The Big City Flatbreads that we serve at our Des Moines BBQ restaurant look an awful lot like pizza, so sometimes people ask us why we call them flatbreads. Are they the same thing or actually different food items? Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is here to clear up the confusion for you.



Pizza is defined as a yeasted flatbread typically topped with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in an oven. It is commonly also topped with meats, vegetables, and condiments.

Flatbread “pizza” is generally made on a thinner, crispier crust using lighter toppings and sauce, most often not a tomato sauce.

Since they have differing definitions, technically there is a slight difference between the two. Some people would love to argue the fact that pizzas and flatbreads are not the same food, but none of the research that we uncovered proved that as a definite fact. While the toppings and types of crust aren’t exactly the same, they are actually considered a similar dish.

So… those findings were a bit anti-climactic. (Sorry about that!) Fortunately, the toppings we offer on our Flatbreads at Wobbly Boots BBQ are exciting enough to titillate any taste bud! Check out the amazing flavors we’ve created especially for you.




Crab Rangoon
Wobbly Boots own crab rangoon filling slathered on our flatbread pizza crust and topped with our five-cheese pizza blend. It’s finished with fried wontons and a sweet chili drizzle. A customer favorite!

We start with our thin flatbread pizza crust, spread our homemade cheese sauce on top, add our five-cheese pizza blend, and top that with smoked ham, bacon crumbles, lettuce, and tomatoes, all drizzled with ranch dressing.

Buffalo Bacon Chicken & Jalapeno
Our flatbread covered in our chipotle buffalo sauce and topped with grilled chicken breast, bacon, jalapenos, and our five-cheese pizza blend, finished with ranch dressing.

BBQ Brisket
Our homemade BBQ sauce spread over our flatbread pizza crust and topped with slow-smoked brisket, red onion, and a combination of our five-cheese pizza blend & cheddar jack cheese. Outstanding flavor!!

Spinach Artichoke Chicken
Our homemade spinach artichoke dip generously spread over our flatbread and topped with five-cheese mozzarella blend, chicken, diced tomatoes, and finished with Parmesan cheese.



The next time that you have a craving for pizza (as we all do often,) head on over to our family-friendly restaurant in Des Moines and give one of our fantastic flatbreads a try.
