Pita Pizzas!

Lately I’ve been craving pizza like a madwoman.  Normally we buy a Delliscio pizza once in a while to satisfy the craving but this time I wanted to make my own and healthify it a bit.

I’ve seen pita pizzas in the blogosphere lately so I decided to give them a whirl!   I preheated the oven at 350F and cooked these badboys for 10minutes.

What I threw on:

pitas

pizza sauce

spinach

button mushrooms

chopped red pepper

pepperoni

Monterrey jack cheese (we had no mozzarella)

Here’s what the pizzas looked pre-cheese.  This was quite an ordeal for me.  First I slathered pizza sauce on the pitas, then threw spinach & mushrooms.  When I pulled out the pepperoni I got a little frazzled because I realized I wished I had put the pepperoni on the pitas after the pizza sauce, not after all of the veg.

So what did I do?  I tucked the pepperoni underneath the already laid out veg.

OCD much?

I think so!

Et voila!

Honestly – these suckers were so good!  Both myself and Dave loved them and they will be making a re-appearance in our kitchen VERY soon!  Maybe next time I’ll experiment with some new toppings!

What are your favorite pizza toppings?

The Yves veggie pepperoni is AWESOME! Much healthier than any meat product I've seen.

I also use onion, zucchini, spinach, 'shrooms, olives, peppers and the Kraft 4 Cheese Italian blend.

Now I want pizza!

I lovvvvve pita pizzas! I actually love all pizzas, but I really think my cravings are more about that combination of cheese, sauce and pepperoni ... so these little guys definitely satisfy all that!

Hmm, now I really want one!

That reminds me of two things...

1) I have pizza dough in the freezer that needs to be used.

2) There were these awesome pitas that I used to buy back home (made in Victoria so of course not available here) that were crazy good and low points. I used to make hummus pita pizzas all the time!!

Aw yeah! I love pita pizzas! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I think I might just have to make a pita pizza tomorrow. Or, I could make actual hummus to dip the pita in. Haven't decided. Damn.

Anyway! KEEP IT UP WITH THE RUNNING! I saw that you're doing the 3 minutes! Just stick with it. If it gets really difficult/hard to keep up, slow down the pace. Remember. It's not how fast you do, but that you do it consistently and that you finish. You can do it!
