Description

This veggie pita bread pizza is a quick and easy dinner idea that comes in handy on busy weeknights! Use your favorite veggie toppings.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 8 ounces canned artichoke hearts (or vegetable toppings of your choice)*
  • 4 pita rounds (homemade, or purchased)
  • 1 cup Best Pizza Sauce or crushed San Marzano tomatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella, Italian blend, or Monterrey jack)
  • Fresh herbs (we used fresh basil and oregano)
  • Kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 450°F.
  2. Chop the vegetables into small pieces. (Note that most vegetables you can use raw; some vegetables are better when first sauteed briefly in a bit of olive oil, such as spinach, kale, zucchini, and mushrooms.) Thinly slice or chop the herbs; if using basil, set aside.
  3. On each pita, thinly spread 1/4 cup tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes (with a little kosher salt sprinkled on top, if using crushed tomatoes). Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Top with chopped vegetables, and sprinkle with some kosher salt.
  4. Slide the pizzas onto the pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 7 to 10 minutes. Top with fresh basil, cut into pieces, and serve immediately.

Notes

*Most vegetables you can use raw; some vegetables are better when first sauteed briefly in a bit of olive oil, such as spinach, kale, zucchini, and mushrooms.
