CRISPY CRUSTED PITA PIZZA


Crispy Crusted Pita Pizza.  So quick and easy especially if you have a Ninja.  You can top it with whatever you have on hand.
Did you know that pita bread makes a great crispy crust?  Well it does if you know how.  Imagine how many individual pizza's you can make with just one bag of pita bread.  You could fee a whole family.  Sometimes, I have company and I always like to share with them something to eat before they leave.

This is so quick, it only takes a few minutes to chop whatever you are going to use.  Only 3 seconds to chop if you have a Ninja Pulse.  Yes, my Ninja makes my life so much easier.  I absolutely love it!

Anyway, you can top it with just about anything you have in your refrigerator.  It's also a great way to get rid of any left-over food too.  Just don't tell them it's re-hashed.  Anyway, it's healthy, easy, cheap, and by all means definitely tasty.  This is what I did to serve 2.

By the way, this Temptations bakeware is the best I've ever used.  And I've been baking for many years now. If you ever try Temptations bakeware  by Tara, you might not ever want to go back.  Why?  Because it's presentable,
durable and so easy to clean.  Nothing every sticks.  Ever!
Ingredients:
  • Pita bread 2 (just double or triple recipe for more)
  • Spaghetti Sauce 1/2 cup (Canned spaghetti sauce is ok)***
  • Mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup shredded or chopped in small pieces.
  • Meat topping your choice (I used turkey pastrami slices for this one.  One per pizza.)
  • Vegetable topping (your choice)
  • Olive oil  enough to brush each pita bread
  • Oregano, a pinch crushed between your fingers for each pizza.
Instructions:

***The secret to the success of any pizza is in the dough,  and the sauce.   The dough is taken care of by the "no-fail pita bread".  As for the sauce canned is fine. But if you saute some chopped veggies, you can hide them in the sauce.  Again I used my nifty Ninja Mega Kitchen System to chop some onions, garlic, bell peppers and carrots in no time.  I sauteed them, added the spaghetti sauce and no one will ever know anything came from a can, or that it has carrots.  Lol.  Just like semi-homemade.
  • Preheat oven to 380 F
  • Brush olive oil abundantly on each pita bread to avoid bread getting soggy.
  • Top with Spaghetti sauce.  
  • Add meat, cheese, oregano, then veggies.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake for 4-7 minutes depending on desired crispiness.
  • Let cool one minute before serving
There you have it.  Another quick, cheap and easy meal for 2 or more.  They will definitely ask you to make it again, because it's definitely a winner.  It's so easy, you just might oblige.  Have fun, be creative, and share.  If you find this recipe helpful, please click the box on the right.  And again, feel free to share.  Till then, Many blessings.

Sincerely,

Mary Helen
