What's For Dinner? Easy Peasy Pizza!

What's For Dinner? Easy Peasy Pizza!

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,


Aloha Pizza
From Meal Time

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

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Arrange pitas on a baking sheet. Divide olive oil OR pizza sauce, spreading evenly over pitas.
  3. Top with pineapple, ham, green pepper and cheese.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until cheese melts.

Serves 4.

another way to make quick & easy pizza is to use pillsbury biscuits. just roll them out to flatten them a little and put them on a greased cooking sheet. top with favorite pizza toppings (mine happens to be BBQ sauce, grilled chicken, red onions, and mozzarella) and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. so easy...and it helps my constant pizza cravings!

Mmm I make pita pizzas all the TIME! They're one of my favorites. I like TONS of sauce, mozzerella, tomatoes, black olives, onions, and morning star farms sausage patties.

I should make this tonight for dinner! Me and the hubs usually watch a movie and eat pizza anyways, but I like the idea of using pita. I might even get whole wheat pitas instead. And sometimes when I crave pizza when I'm alone at home, I bust out the English muffins, spread some marinara sauce, sprinkle some Fat free cheese and put it in the toaster oven, for a quick craving fix ;)

I'm tried something like this and I loved it! Perfect for when you want pizza and I love the idea of pitas as the crust. The recipe I tried called for tortillas. Yum!
