Personal Pita Pizzas


Disclaimer: Don't judge me on my crappy cookie sheets. Now that that's settled...

We had a huge, major Nor'easter this weekend. The kids were getting kind of stir crazy so I decided a kids & mom cooking event was in order. MJ and bubba were craving pizza but I didn't have the time to whip up some pizza dough, so we improvised with pita bread!

Pita pockets
Tomato sauce
Mozzarella cheese
Toppings (optional)

Pre-heat oven to broil. Slice the pita pocket in half so you have two little circles. Place the pita on a cookie sheet and put in the oven to broil for about 3 minutes, just until they begin to crisp. Take them out of the oven and add sauce, cheese, and whatever toppings you would like. Place the cookie sheet back in the oven to broil, about 5 minutes, until the cheese is lightly browned.


My Recommendations:
The kids loved making these with me, and had they not been "starving," I would have been a bit more creative with the toppings. These were really tasty, very easy, and ready in about 15 minutes.
