Pizza - using Pita Bread or a Tortilla!
You can add any veggies and herbs to pita bread or a tortilla, even this and it will turn out just right. Here's what I recommend for a balanced delicious homemade pizza that will satisfy everyone in the family.
tsp. olive oil
small onion, peeled and chopped and diced
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
tsp. dried oregano
tsp. dried basil
tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 bay life
cup canned whole peeled tomatoes, roughly chopped
cup tomato paste (or try pesto sauce, which is another great base!)
2 whole wheat pita breads (or you can use tortilla, just be careful when cooking as it will need less time in the oven.)
yellow bell pepper, seeds and membranes removed, cut into thin strips
1/8 cup baby spinach leaves, chopped into fine pieces
cup mozzarella cheese, grated
Fresh basil, thinly sliced for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Over medium heat, heat oil in skillet. Add onion and garlic, stirring occasionally so that they donít burn. Cook for about 4 minutes until both are brown in color. Sprinkle oregano, basil, red pepper flakes and bay leaf. Mix spices together. Stir in peeled tomatoes and tomato paste, increase to high heat. Once boiling, bring heat down to medium-low and allow mixture to simmer until sauce is thick. Arrange pizzas on baking sheets. Divide sauce between pitas, leaving a crust border. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.
Such a simple and healthy dish idea.
