Pita Party

Here is an easy dinner... and the kids can join in making their own pizzas... or should I say "pitas".
In the photo, the pita on the left is ready to go in the oven, and the one on the right is done baking.

There is no specific recipe. Use what you have on hand or what you like on your pizzas.
You could even add bits of leftover zucchini, black beans, butternut squash, etc.
Or you could use blue cheese, feta, or whatever kind of cheese you like.
Be inventive!

Start with whole wheat pitas, split in half and place each half (rough side up) on a baking sheet.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

These are the ingredients that I used:

ITALIAN SAUSAGE, sauteed until cooked through and browned
MUSHROOMS, sliced and sauteed in a little olive oil
SCALLIONS, thinly sliced
ROMA TOMATOES, seeded and diced
BLACK OLIVES, quartered
MOZZARELLA CHEESE, grated (or you can use the mozzarella pearls... small rounds of mozzarella)

Put all the ingredients in little bowls and let everyone help themselves as they make their own pitas.

Layer the ingredients on the pita slices and top with mozzarella cheese and some Parmesan cheese.
Sprinkle with garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
Drizzle olive oil liberally over the pitas.

Bake for about 10 minutes... check frequently. They are done when the pita is crispy and the cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with additional Parmesan if desired.

Cool a few minutes. Slice into quarters and serve.
