Pita Pizza #1: Sausage


For those of you who saw the little previews I posted yesterday, here's part 1 of 2. As you may know by now, I like to use up any leftovers I may have in the fridge and pantry.

I had a craving of tacos, but I didn't have any ground beef. Oh well. Next time. I have plans to recreate one of my favorite Taco Bell items. And it's a supreme with a nice crunch that's wrapped!!

So, what were the leftovers for this dish: sour cream, red leaf lettuce, that huge Hickory Farms beef sausage stick (it's finally dwindled down to a nub), sweet onion, cheese (mozzarella and parmesan), wheat pita bread.

This is a tomatoless pizza. I used the sour cream as the base and piled everything else on top. The pita has a nice crunch when bite into it. Almost like a thin crust. Mmmmm... An super easy weeknight dinner. Tune in tomorrow for part-2. But for now, sit back, relax and grab yourself a can of pop or a bottle of beer and please enjoy part-1.

Serves 1-2.



Sausage Pita Pizza

1 Large Pita Bread
3 Tbsp Sour Cream
1/4 c sausage (minced)
1/4 c sweet onion (chopped)
1/2 c shredded lettuce
grated parmesan
shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven 400˚F

Spread the sour cream on the pita leaving room for the crust. Top it with the onion, sausage, lettuce, a couple handfuls of parmesan and mozzarella.

Bake for 10 min

Why did I come back? I warned you with my jaw wired shut I can't eat pizza. But these pics sure make me wish I could GREG

A great little personal pizza! I'll have to bust out the pitas later and follow your lead! YUmMy!

Kamran Siddiqi said...

Yummm! Sounds delish! I would have never though of using pita bread... I would have thought of using a bagel, english muffin, baguette, and any other type of bread that would make a good pizza, but never pita. I need to try this!

Great post :)

This looks really good. We've also used lavash for pizza. Works really well for lovers of thin crusted pies.

Phyllis said...

Awesome idea! We're on the same wavelength - I made a leftover 'pizza' for breakfast this morning using mushrooms, shaved parmesan, arugula, and tortillas for the crust.

Mary: Lavash it good, too. I was debating on wheather to get pita of naan. The pita won out this time.

Phyllis: Nice!! Pizza for bfast is a great choice.

Love the cute pita pizza! Mini everything is more fun -- cupcakes are more fun than cakes, travel sized shampoo more fun than regular sized shampoo.
