White pizza baked with fresh button mushrooms, ricotta cheese and fresh herbs on a pita bread defines simple with a sophisticated flare!
Making pita pizza's is fun and exciting for the whole family. It's a perfect size for one person, and you can jazz it up with any healthy toppings of your choice! It's fast and easy, with only 5 minutes to prepare and minimal baking time. Perfect! Of course, this is Liz's creation when 2 years ago she had to improvise for a last minute dinner party. How clever!
What I LOVE about these pita pizza's, is that I can make as many pizza's as I need, which is the fun part! Everyone will think who is in the kitchen whipping these out? Shh.. Don't spoil the surprise and tell them, if you don't have to.
For mushroom lovers, try swapping the white buttons for some portobellos, creminis or even shiitakes! Try empowering your kids and let them have fun making their own pita pizza night! Give them healthy topping choices to choose from, they will be estastic!
Also, try Liz's other Pita Pizza creation as well! My high school and college daughters make these pita pizza's often !! So I make sure I keep my Pita's well stocked!
