Delicious pita pizzas that melt in the mouth.

Always hungry, even in a hot summer day, we are glad to present a recipe that’s both easy to prepare, tasty and great for lunch when you’re pressed for time.

These delicious pita pizzas, full of good vegetables, offer the advantage of not burdening our stomach while filling our appetite. By choosing to use the whole wheat pita bread we are improving the flavor, while contributing to a better diet.

The basic recipe is very simple and lends itself to many variations to suit your tastes and the ingredients you have on hand. For example, mozzarella cheese can easily be replaced with cheddar, brie, or a delicious goat cheese. Onions and green onions could be replace by thinly sliced ​​leek. The choice of meat (ham, sausage, prosciuto, ground beef, etc.) is almost infinite and still remains optional for those who prefer a vegetarian version.

While pizza sauce is pretty spicy, nothing prevents you to add chilies, garlic, ginger or any other spices to raise the heat factor even more.

Imagine, visualize, anticipate the pita-pizza that makes you salivate and get started.
