Copycat Panera Chipotle Chicken & Bacon Flatbread Pizza

Panera has come out with new Flatbread Pizzas and I had to try them!!! Then I had to make them! My favorite is the Chipotle Chicken & Bacon Flatbread Pizza. It's cheesy with lots of bacon and so good!

Garlic Cream Sauce

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano cheese (or Parmesan)

Pizza Toppings

  • 1 cup smoked chicken breast
  • 12 grape tomatoes sliced
  • 3 slices applewood smoked bacon cooked and diced
  • 1 ball fresh Mozzarella

Chipotle Aioli


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • In a small saucepan over medium high, melt butter
  • Once butter is melted, add minced garlic for 1 minute
  • Add in grated cheese and heavy cream, whisking until mixed and melted
  • Remove garlic cream sauce from heat
  • Lay naan onto a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spoon garlic cream sauce onto Naan
  • Top with pulled chicken, sliced tomatoes and bacon. Then slice fresh mozzarella and place in and around toppings
  • Bake at 375 for 6 minutes and then turn oven to high broil and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted and starts to brown
  • While pizza is baking, in a bowl whisk together mayo and chipotle pepper seasoning. If mixture is too thick to drizzle - you can add a tablespoon of water.
  • Remove from oven and drizzle with chipotle aioli and fresh cilantro


  • Here's a delicious recipe for Smoked Chicken Breast
  • You can also bake this pizza in the air fryer for 5-8 minutes at 375
  • Easy swaps:
    • Smoked chicken - you can use Rotisserie chicken 
    • Romano - you can use Parmesan
    • Fontina - you can use Fresh Mozzarella
    • Garlic Cream Sauce - you can use jarred alfredo
  • I air fried the bacon while making the garlic cream sauce
