  • 2 tablespoons sugar

For the flatbread

  • -1 batch of your favorite pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)

  2. 2. Preheat the oven according to your pizza dough’s specifications. Oil and flour a pizza stone or large baking sheet before spreading out your dough.
  3. 3. Poke the dough with a fork a few times before adding the tomato spread. Use a spatula to spread well.
  4. 4. Add your soft crumbled cheese, the beet slices, the hard grated cheese and jalapeño.
