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 nutritional information, yup, sit and eat the whole thing that is almost 900 calories:
How to prepare this item:
Out of the box:
Out of the toaster oven for 18 minutes at 450 F:
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).
