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!
