Bruschetta Pizza

At our house, we eat a lot of pizza because it is one of my favorite meals.  We always have pitas in the freezer so that we can throw together personal pizzas using whatever we have on hand.   With so many tomatoes ripening in the garden, we decided to make bruschetta pizza.  Here’s the basic recipe, although it can definitely be adapted 🙂

Bruschetta Pizza

Ingredients:

  • greek pocketless pitas (or, if you’re ambitious, homemade crust)
  • olive oil
  • garlic (we used 1 large clove for 3 pitas)
  • cherry tomatoes
  • basil
  • mozzarella cheese (we used regular but buffalo mozzarella would also be great)

Instructions:

Use a garlic press and spread garlic on each of the pitas.  Drizzle each pita with a small amount of olive oil.  Cut tomatoes into quarters or eighths and spread over pitas.  Rip up basil leaves and spread over pitas.  Top each pita with grated mozzarella cheese.  Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 14-16 minutes, then set oven to broil until cheese is browned. Chives or onions would also go well on this pizza, but we wanted to keep things simple so didn’t add any.
