Snacks: Pizza on Pita

I found my inspiration for this recipe here. That particular recipe is vegan, and...I'm not. So I made non-vegan pizza on pita, and now I'm going to share [the recipe] with you.




Tomato Sauce
This is how I make almost any tomato product - spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or tomato soup. I just season them differently, and make them thicker or thinner, depending on what I'm making.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbs. sugar, to cut down on the acid
  • Seasonings (garlic salt, oregano, basil, etc.)  use whatever flavors you like
Place all of your ingredients in a blender and blend to desired thickness. Done! 



Pizza



Ingredients:

  • Pita* bread or sandwich thins
  • Tomato sauce 
  • Pizza toppings -today I used mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. You could also use feta cheese, garlic salt, pepperoni, peppers, onions, mushrooms, leftovers (barbecue chicken, anyone? - Except me. I'm vegetarian), etc.
While you wait for your oven to preheat to 400, place your pita on a piece of foil. Place a couple spoons worth of your sauce onto each pita and top with cheese and other toppings. Bake for about 10 minutes. 
If you prefer crispier crust, prebake your pita for five minutes.


Enjoy! 



Love,
Scout

  1. That's not how I pictured Peeta when I was reading them, but I can see how he'll be amazing for the part... at least I hope he will be! :)

  2. I never really picture people - not clearly, anyway. I generally just have...um...vibes. And he didn't fit the vibes I had for Peeta, but I think he'll be really good, too. I can't wait to see it.
