Pizza Pitas

So since it's so hot outside, I've been trying to come up with ideas for cooler meals.  My husband thinks I'm a little crazy.  His tastes and preferences don't sway with the weather, but mine certainly do.  And apparently so does Noah's 'cause he hasn't wanted anything warm lately either.  

Anyways, I was wandering around the grocery store the other day when I spotted pitas and wondered what in the world I could stuff in one.  I think this might become a new challenge around here, but for now, we came up with Pizza Pitas.  You can stuff them with all kinds of things, but they're really versatile, easy, and perfect for a summer dinner.  So let's get started!

Pizza Pitas

Pizza sauce
Mozzarella cheese
Mini pepperoni
Artichoke hearts
Roasted red peppers
Any other pizza topping

Start by lining the inside of your pita with the sauce.  I like to be really generous with the pizza sauce or it can be too dry.

Next add your toppings.  I loved pairing the pepperoni and roasted red peppers.  The kids added olives and the artichoke hearts were fantastic as well.  But you can add whatever you'd like.

Finally stuff in some shredded mozzarella cheese.  Make sure you use a good amount.  You can never have too much cheese.

Heat your oven just enough to warm everything and melt the cheese.  I know this is a summer meal, but we tried them both heated and not heated.  And heated is 100% better.  Trust me.  You won't regret it.

And there you have it... Pizza Pitas!  They're a yummy easy treat for dinner or a quick lunch.  Pair them with a green salad or pea salad and enjoy!

What's on your summer menu?

I was hoping you were going to heat them :) I am going to make black bean and corn salad this week. If I can get some really awesome tomatoes (crossing my fingers for heirlooms)when I go to the Farmer's Market I want to make a tomato salad. And even though it requires the oven I want to roast a bunch of veggies to eat in sandwiches and as room temp sides the rest of the week.
