Liz's Pita Pizza

 
 
This is a simple twist on pizza -  and done in less than 10 minutes. You only need a few ingredients including pita flat breads, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and some marinara tomato sauce. This is one of Liz's culinary creations!


She has a talent for creating healthy, easy and delicious dishes with simple ingredients, like our Mom.

One evening, she had to come up with a quick dinner for friends and the pita pizza was born!   This is a fun way to make pizza during a busy weeknight or any time of the year.   You may use a simple homemade sauce or store bought sauce in a jar.

For a healthier twist,  try using whole wheat or whole grain pita flat breads. And for Gluten Free Pizza ! - Try the Schar's Gluten Free Pizza Crust ( look for the yellow and green box in the pasta section)
Your kids will LOVE THIS PIZZA !   YUM......



Liz's Pita Pizza Recipe: calls for 2 Pizza's:               
  •  2  Pita Flat breads - ( I used Kontos, 7 inch Pita Flat breads)
  •  1/2 pound Fresh Mozzarella  - sliced                             
  •  6 to 8 leaves of fresh basil
  •  4 Tbsp. of  Mom's Marinara Sauce
  •  2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese                         
  •  salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
                         
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Place 2 Pita flat breads onto baking sheet.
Add 2 heaping tablespoons of marinara sauce and spread onto each bread.
Sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese on top.
Add 2 to 3 slices of mozzarella.
Top with 4 leaves of fresh basil.
Sprinkle some salt, pepper and garlic powder on top.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until the mozzarella cheese has melted.  Enjoy!


If you want a real brick oven taste,  try placing the pizza's on a grill with cover lid closed, and grill the pizza's until the cheese is melted.  Having the grill covered gives the pizza's a smokey taste.

Serves 2 to 4
