My Yummy Local Life

{July 13, 2014}   Bread and Wine 24

Pita pizza (paired with mint iced tea)

Pita “Pizza”

(inspired by not wanting to use the stove or oven on a hot mid summers Arizona day)


pita, 1 per person, homemade if possible

mozzarella cheese, 2 tbsp

bacon, 1 slice

pizza sauce, 1-2 tbsp

How to:

Top the pita (which you grilled outside if you are smart and live in Arizona) with sauce, bacon and cheese. Place in toaster oven for a light toast cycle. Once the cheese is melted it’s ready to go. Drink with mint ice tea because you are so bored with water and it’s too early to have a beer.



Tasting Notes:

Lisa: This made me feel like I was eating a little kid lunch all grown up. We used to make pizza on English muffins and this seems pretty close. Everything was tasty and there was the bonus of not heating up the house to cook.
