Light and Easy Pizzas (On Pita Bread)

Easy Pizza on a Pita

 

Because I’m a food blogger, my life basically revolves around food – and not in the way that everyone’s lives revolve around food because they need it to survive. I am constantly thinking about food; I’m constantly planning what to do with food – and when I’m not thinking about it or planning what to do with it, I’m preparing it, cooking it, and eating it. Because of this, I take responsibility for finding balance in my diet and going on strict meal plans every once in a while to maintain a healthy balance (and a healthy self-esteem).

After fighting a raging craving for pizza all week long, I caved. The awesome thing is that I was able to cave while staying on track. I’ve been turning to these pita pizzas for years whenever I’ve felt the urge to devour a pizza (which is basically every five minutes of my life, but anyway) while trying to avoid eating junk. I am aware that there is also a cauliflower crust alternative, but I haven’t perfected that yet, so I’m going to stick with these pitas for now.

These pitas end up like flatbreads, basically.

My favourite is a simple cheese, pepperoni and fresh oregano, but I made two different kinds to lend off some ideas.  Aside from the classic, I also threw together a pita pizza with olive oil, cooked chicken breast, roasted red pepper, baby spinach, capers, feta cheese, mozzarella, and a sprinkle of parmesan and cracked black pepper.

I’ll list the ingredients, but I’ll skip measurements/portions for toppings since it’s really up to you; you decide your own pizza :)

Sriracha Chicken with Coconut Lime Rice

Remember that time I made Sticky Sriracha Meatballs? Well, that wasn’t enough; I couldn’t stop there. I needed to turn the flavours from that addictive finger food into something I could actually devour as a full blown meal – and on the regular. I don’t always have time to make homemade meatballs – but I often…

Teriyaki Salmon Ramen Bowl

The photo above is what an indecisive Friday night looks like when I don’t opt for take-out (and I often do because Friday evening = tired). I had salmon, and I had instant Ramen noodles in my pantry, so this recipe basically wrote itself as I rummaged through the crisper for veggies. I went with broccoli because I…

Beer Butter Mushrooms

Yep, you read it right. BEER butter mushrooms. Not wine, BEER. Most recipes I scoped out did, in fact, call for wine but I wasn’t having any of that. First of all, let’s make mention of how adorable these little button mushrooms are. This was the first time in ages that I’d even seen these little guys up for…

Soy Citrus Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

This dinner was special, because I had my wonderful friend Suzy over and Suzy is the reason that I’m writing this right now. Just over two years ago, Suz encouraged me to launch this blog! This blog that has given me so much happiness and creative determination with photography, cooking, and writing – it’s all thanks to…
