Food Friday: Pita Pizza

Holy cow, guys. I just took a peek through my last few "what i ate" posts and was shocked at what I found; I have been on an intense sugar kick.  S'mores bars, carrot cake, dessert tarts, peanut butter cookies!? I think the only thing I have left to master is molasses. Just call me Betty Crocker and we'll call it a night. I'm serious, I think I've proven I deserve it. 

In any case, I've seen the direction my life is going without an influx of veggies and I'm making strides to change my ways. Pita pizzas are an old friend of mine. Not going to lie, they've helped me out of a few jams in my day. Random veggies leftover from a week's worth of dinners? Not enough veggies to make anything substantial? Toss in a pita and some pesto and they'll have a new lease on life! 

One of the best things about pita pizza is you can dress it pretty much any way you'd like AND it always stays fun and exciting because it's so easy to switch up the toppings! This week my fridge had a bunch of my favourite veggies (coincidence) left over from the week's meals. I wasn't picky; I chopped them all up. 

Since I was feeling fancy and have a penchant for basil, I went with pesto as my base. I have also been known to use olive oil with garlic or tomato paste, both are delicious. Other awesome topper options are sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, asparagus, pepperoni, cheddar, smoked gouda, eggplant, and the list goes on... although I wouldn't begin to assume they all mesh perfectly together.

Once you've brushed your base and topped your toppers, place your pita pizza on the cookie sheet and toss it in your pre-heated (400 degree) oven. Bake for 10 minutes and, voila! Dinner! This whole meal can take as little as 25 minutes to make. And even better? One pita pizza with a side of salad is enough dinner for one girl! Quick, easy AND a perfect portion size!? Amazing.

hmmm, notes... notes...
anything you want to sautee or soften before hand?
Do it. it's worth the time and makes it all kinds of extra delicious.
For the above pizza I sauteed the onions, mushrooms, zucchini and red peppers.

that's all I've got. I love these effin' things.
if you've got any questions, ask away!


  1. That looks amazing, and best of all really easy! I usually just stir fry my extra veggies and put them on top of rice or quiona. This will be a delicious change! Thanks for sharing :)
