Pita Pizza

Well, he's done it again! In an amazing flurry of creativity, Michael took some leftover homemade pita bread that I made for a home-cooked Greek-fest on Sunday (I made pitas, tziziki, gyro loaf and roasted yellow squash) and turned them into fabulous Pita Pizzas!

They were thin and crispy, with really tasty pizza sauce that we collaborated on, although I have to say, I was more the prep chef than anything, chopping our fresh picked oregano, basil, thyme, home grown tomatoes and leftover red onion and mushrooms. He built the pizzas, using the pitas, sauce, leftover mozzerella and pepperoni and above mentioned items, and put them under the broiler for a few minutes. They were fantastic!

He got the idea Sunday night, when he saw the pitas I made. Each one was about 9" or so in diameter, and on the crisp side, so he thought they'd make great pizza dough and that next time, we should just make one BIG pita instead of 8 regular sized ones. (Well, OK, maybe it'd have to be 2 big pitas!) So to test his theory he went ahead and made individual pizzas on Monday. I have to admit, he was right!
