Stuffed Pita Pizza

I have a few good Facebook friends who like to post pictures of what they eat for dinner!  You know the type.  I am that person myself!  I wish people did it more!  I like to see what people are having for dinner!!

So anyway, a friend of mine posted a picture of her amazing looking pizza!  It was homemade stuffed crust with string cheese used as the cheese in the stuffed crust!   I happened to have some pitas in my kitchen.  AND I didn’t have time to make homemade pizza crust for dinner tonight.  So I decided to switch up her idea and make garlic and cheese stuffed pita pizzas!

1)  I sliced open a pita and stuffed it with garlic olive oil and cheese. ( I made garlic olive oil by mincing garlic into two tablespoons of olive oil)

2) I baked the cheese and garlic filled pita bread in the oven at 350 degrees f for about 8 minutes.

I made my pizza sauce by sautéing 1 pound of ground turkey with a jar of pasta sauce.  This mixture makes for a much healthier pizza topping then sausage or pepperoni.  This tastes great, and I had enough for another meal after making three pita pizzas.

3 ) After the Pita bakes, add pizza toppings to the top of your pizza. Toppings can be whatever you want them to be:) 

4) Bake your pizza for another 7-8 minutes or until your cheese is melted to your satisfaction.

This was sooo good! I cannot even tell you!  I felt like to was biting into restaurant pizza!  It was so crisp and cheesy!  But I am sure it was much healthier!

I hope to integrate this meal into my family’s dinner rotation!
