Pita Pizzas

I always forget how quick and easy these little pizzas are, so I wanted to make sure I shared the recipe with you this time. It’s more of a technique than a recipe, really, since you can change the toppings however you like.

Start by sauteeing Italian sausage style soy crumbles with a few slices of onion. I may have overdone it on the onions this time, but I looooove onions.

Preheat your oven to 400 and grate a nice pile of mozzarella cheese.

Then lay out your pitas (preferably the kind without the pocket in the middle) on a nonstick pan. If you want to make 4 or 5 and they won’t all fit on one pan, just do it in two batches.

Spread each pita with a little marinara sauce. I like a lot of sauce, so I used about two heaping tablespoons per pita.

Then layer on the soy crumbles (obviously you can use real Italian sausage if you want to make it meaty), and top with a handful of cheese.

Bake for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melty and just starting to brown.

Serve with your favorite salad. Mine is red lettuce from the garden, halved cherry tomatoes, parmesan cheese and light balsamic dressing.
