PIZZAThe home-made way
I’m not sure whether I’d call this a recipe as such, more of a meal idea, maybe? The word ‘recipe’ often conjures up thoughts in my mind of having to annoyingly buy ingredients that you wouldn't typically use on a day to day basis (or ever use again), and study complex and time-consuming instructions on how to create something that will be demolished within minutes. Perhaps it’s a little senseless for me to think like this since without stumbling on these weird and wonderful recipes I've found on the super-foodie bloggers’ websites over recent years, I’d have probably never experimented with Medjool dates, turmeric, courgetti, almond butter, soaking oats overnight in milk and yoghurt, and heaven forbid, I’d have never thought to smash avocado and feta and spread it on sour-dough toast!
There’s nothing complicated or particularly exceptional with this home-made pizza, but it’s quick, easy, and nutritious, and it can use your favourite everyday ingredients - just how I like home-cooked meals to be; it's also a nice alternative to your traditional sandwich. Once you have a wholemeal pita bread and some tomato puree, let your creative juices run with your choice of toppings: I had pineapple, red onion, feta cheese and spinach, which are kitchen staples in my house!
What I Used
1 wholemeal pita bread
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
What I Did
*I smeared a good dollop of tomato puree on to one side of the pita bread followed by a drizzle of olive oil
*I added the rest of my choice of toppings (cheese, pineapple, spinach, red onion) on to the pita bread and baked in the oven on gas mark 5 for 20 minutes. Bellissimo!
