Tom and I are always on the lookout for new yummy, healthy, foods to eat (who am I kidding? I am on the lookout...Tom just eats). I found this new recipe recently and had it stashed away in my recipe box, just waiting to be experimented with. Last week I finally decided to give it a go, and we are so glad I did! We call them Pita Pizzas, and they are sooooo easy! Here is the recipe (by the way, it tastes about a hundred times better than it sounds).
2 6-in. pitas
4-5 tomatoes, depending on size
8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 to 2/3 c. mozzarella cheese
2 tsp. olive oil
garlic powder, salt, pepper
Place pitas on cookie sheet. Put a layer of sliced tomatoes, basil, then cheese. Drizzle olive oil over top. Then I added a sprinkling of garlic powder, salt, and pepper for a little more flavor.
Cook at 420 degrees for about 12 minutes, or until heated through. Let it sit for a few minutes before serving.
Makes 2 generous servings.
(I recommend spending more for the vine-ripened tomatoes, at least until it's tomato season).
Goes perfectly with a green salad or roasted veggies.
So good, so fresh.
