Some places serve pizza while others serve flatbreads, which causes many people to ask if there’s really a difference between the two. Well, first of all, the Big City Flatbreads we serve at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive are packed full of flavors to rival any pizza you’ve ever bitten into! Beyond that, there are a few other things that set the two foods apart from each other.
Not the Same, But Similar
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 the sauce used is 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.

Check out the amazing flavors we’ve created especially for you below. Some feature our award-winning hickory-smoked meats while others offer flavors that are equally as irresistible.
