Pita Pizza – Easiest recipe ever!

Hi, I’m Kawn from Kids Food Universe.  I’m super excited to be back this month with one of my favorite easy dinner recipes!

If you’re looking for an easy win in the kitchen then look no further than these tasty Pita Pizzas. In fact so easy will the win be that it will almost feel like cheating and your kids will be powerless as they are lead in by their noses to the dinner table. Pita Pizzas are quick , easy and can also be relied upon to fill both meal and snack time slots perfectly . It’s also a perfect opportunity to create your own pizza restaurant for the Super Bowl and keep those hungry guests fed in between bowls of guacamole.

The sky’s the limit as far as the toppings go here! They say variety they say is the spice of life.
It works for a vegetarian or the meat your kids crave. It can also be a sneaky vehicle for getting those extra vegetables into them!  After all pizza is pizza very few can refuse the temptation.

Great toppings can also be tuna fish, chicken shreds, shrimps, and anything you basically imagine will work.

What I do  when I cook spaghetti Bolognese or just an ordinary sauce is freeze the left overs and use them for this recipe. This adds mountains of flavor to these pita breads with a minimum of fuss which every mom can use once in a while right?

Pita Pizzas are also an excellent way to peak your little ones interest in cooking. As soon as they can stand on a chair get them busy creating their own favorite toppings.
Watch out though as you might soon have the neighbors kids knocking. I save this recipe for when I need a ”mommy break” but still need to serve something tasty and satisfying for our family table. I promise you IT DOES taste good and IT DOES taste like pizza.
