You all know how much I love pizza: in every shape, form, and flavor! Making homemade pizza does not have to be an elaborate production, with a little help from the grocery store you can have delicious crisp melt in your mouth pizza quicker than delivery. I know it's Friday and the last thing you feel like doing after a long week of hectic work is making dinner, but this is so fast, so simple, and so tasty that it really is a wonderful choice for tonight's dinner. The recipe calls for chopped green pepper but feel free to substitute your favorite vegetable: roasted red peppers, chopped tomatoes, or sliced mushrooms. Likewise use premade pizza dough if you're not a fan of pita. For the recipe,
4 (4-inch) pitas
2 tablespoons olive oil or 1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple tidbits in juice, drained
6 1/2 ounces extra-lean ham, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Arrange pitas on a baking sheet. Divide olive oil OR pizza sauce, spreading evenly over pitas.
- Top with pineapple, ham, green pepper and cheese.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until cheese melts.
