Like pizza but don't like red sauce? Trader Joe's Burrata, Prosciutto and Arugula Flatbread might be for you. Yes, it's advertised as a flatbread with all these toppings, but it really might as well be called pizza. If they did call it pizza it might get lost in the freezer section.
Pros: Very tasty and good value considering you get a small package of prosciutto with this. Looks as good as the picture on the box.
Cons: Sitting down and eating this whole thing is just about 900 calories so plan accordingly.
The verdict: For $4.99 it was a good deal, tasty, and if you are not watching calories it's something that you can enjoy or share. I've bought this several times.
What draws us to this particular flat bread (but really it's like pizza) is the taste. The cheese is nice and creamy. The arugula adds a bit of peppery flavor. But the star here that pulls it all together is the tiny package of prosciutto which adds a really pleasant salty flavor.
Here is a quick visual rundown before I leave you with my final thoughts on this product.

The hot pizza makes the prosciutto melt a bit more. My prosciutto had quite a bit of fat so I didn't use it all. Trader Joe's Burrata, Prosciutto and Arugula Flatbread was tasty and as much as I thought I wouldn't enjoy "cooked" arugula it was a nice touch of peppery bitterness. I'll buy this again.
This is a really good option for those who don't love tomato sauce on pizza (like my husband).

I just tried this for the first time last night & I have to say, I'm not crazy about the flavor of the arugula, it's unpleasantly bitter & not moderated by the mildness of the cheese blend or the prosciutto, which I didn't find all that salty. Also I recommend running the pizza cutter over it before you put the prosciutto on to finish it. I put it on before I ran the pizza cutter over it up on the cutting board, & the pizza cutter ended up picking up the shredded pieces of prosciutto, jamming it in the process, & undoing the work I had in laying it out on top. Not a bad pizza, just not for me with that arugula flavor, so I probably won't be buying this one again.
Hey Stentor! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to stop by and share your thoughts on this!
I tried it for the first time last week and cooked the prosciutto on the pizza. It was delicious!
I know it’s not recommended to do this however, it was worth it.
Hey Linda ! How ever you enjoy this is all that matters. I'm glad you enjoyed it too! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts on it.
Sorry to say I will not purchase again. Absolutely no flavor.
