Pita Pizzas

Pita breads are the most easiset and quickest way to make pizzas . You can add any topping you want and one pita is perfect for one person .Here I have used two toppings , one is a very healthy one and very fresh tasting . The other is a favourite among kids and even adults. Whenever I make spaghetti and meatballs I always freeze half of the meatballs and use them later on for this or sandwiches so here goes both of the toppings......


Whole wheat or white pita breads

for the veggie topping

1 medium sized eggplant sliced thinly
1 medium zucchinni sliced thinly
100 gms mushrooms quartered
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
pitted and sliced black olives
1 tbsp ketchup on each pita
a pinch of dried oragano and basil on each pita
( this topping is good for 3-4 pita )

for the meatball topping

Half portion of meatball sauce
2 tbsp or more of mozarella cheese for each pita
( this topping is good for 4 pitas )


For the veggie pizza

In a bowl add all the veggies and coat them with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste
Heat a grill pan and grill the veggies except the olives on both sides till done .
Spread a tbsp of ketchup on each of the pitas and sprinkle the dried herbs on top .
Now add the grilled veggies and the black olives and top it off with some cheese .
Place it in a medium to hot oven till the cheese melts and the bread is crisp , this may take about 10-15 min .

For the meatball topping .

Spread the meatballs and it's sauce on the pitas .
Add the mozarella cheese on top .
Place it in a medium to hot oven till the cheese melts and the bread is crisp .
