GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) You don’t always have to pick up the phone or preheat the oven for some delicious pizza. Chef Tommy Fitzgerald of Kitchen Sage demonstrates that all you need is a simple pita and some fresh ingredients.
Pita pizzas don’t require any heating in the oven. All you need is some pita bread, a sauce, and toppings to suit your family’s tastes. Some examples from Kitchen Sage include:
- Dessert pizza with Nutella, raspberries, almonds, and mint
- Sundried tomato and pesto, roast beef, and arugula
- Tomato bruschetta with fresh mozzarella
- Basil hummus with feta, banana peppers, onions and olives
Pita pizzas are great for play dates or last-minute company. They’re fun for kids to help make and are healthier than traditional pizza.
