Pita Pizza




Pita Pizza
Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2007
Serves: 6 servings

1 (1-pound) package large pita breads (6 pita rounds)
1 1/2 cups homemade, or store-bought pizza sauce, divided
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella or Monterey Jack (about 6 ounces), divided
Your choice of toppings: veggies, mushrooms, cooked meat, etc.

Make sure the oven rack is in the lower 1/3 of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Lay the pita rounds on 2 large baking sheets. Pour 1/4 cup of the pizza sauce on each round and spread it evenly with the back of the spoon. Top each with your chosen toppings then top each 'pizza' with 1/4 cup of the grated cheese.

Bake until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes. Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the sheets from the oven. Cut each pita pizza into 6 slices with a sharp knife or pizza cutter, transfer them to a plate using a turner, and serve immediately.
