Pita Pizza

My babygirl didn't have school yesterday, so, I decided to make Pita Pizza. As much as I wanted to follow Jason's recipe, I didn't have broccoli sprouts and my daughter doesn't like olives.  So, I decided to just throw in whatever I had in the fridge.

It's very easy to prepare and it would be nice if you could include your kids while making this.

Ok, so let's get cookin'...


Whole Wheat Pita Bread
Prepared pesto (or you can make your own)
Julienned Red Bell Peppers
Thinly sliced Red Onion
Thinly sliced Portabello Muchrooms
Julienned Sun-dried tomatoes
Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breast (I got one with lemon herb seasoning)

1.  Thinly coat grill pan with Canola Oil Cooking Spray and cook the mushrooms, asparagus, red bell peppers and onions.  Around 2 minutes.

sorry forgot to add the onions last minute that's why it's not in the pic ;p

2.  Grill chicken and cut into thin small pieces.

3.  Spread the pesto thinly over the pita bread.

4.  Spread the onions, roasted pepper, portabello mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes.

5.  Put in the sliced chicken and asparagus.

6.  Spread the mozzarella cheese evenly and put on baking sheet with a little spray so the bottom crisps up.

7.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 10 minutes.

 8.  Cut into 4 pieces and enjoy!


30 Days of Thanks (Day 12)

I am thankful for the FOOD on my table and the family and friends I share it with! I know that a lot of people lack food around the world.   That said, it should not be taken for granted. I am also thankful for discovering it's healthier options. Now, more than ever, I feel a lot stronger, healthier and have a better relationship with food.

  • Which dish do you enjoy making with your kid(s)?
  • How did you spend the 'no-school-day' with your kids yesterday?



  1. oh my. I spent my no school day being a grump. You're making me look so bad.
    We did end up having a tea party last night, so I probably came out on top in the eyes of the kiddos...It's how the day ends, right? :-)

    My favorite thing I ever made with the kids was a fruit pizza. Cookie dough crust, sweetened cream cheese frosting and then topped with strawberries, blueberries, etc. They had so much fun with it!

  2. Good Morning! Love this recipe. Thanks. We had fun just being in our jammies, being lazy and playing around since there was no school, preschool and my husband had the day off. He geeked out with them and made a big wooden box where they can switch switches and push buttons to make lights go on and off. My one year old is going to LOVE waking up to it this morning. :) In reality, he will probably still cry for us to pick him up so he can switch the real lights on and off but it was a fun bonding experience for them to do with him.

  3. i have all those ingredients. maybe i can convince someone to make it for me tonight hahah

  4. Looks good…But Jason’s gonna’ flip when he finds out that you improvised.

  5. I always make pita pizza but never tried it with pesto sauce instead of tomato sauce. Hmmm.. nice idea. Thanks for sharing Miss Julie! :D

  6. Hmmmm, well I don't have any kids yet, and I had to work yesterday, but that pita pizza looks marvelous. I like to cook whatever, and invent stuff as I go along. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  7. That looks AWESOME! I'll definitely have to try that out.

  8. I LOVE pita pizzas.


    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Yum! I've done pizzas out of all sorts of things but don't think I've ever done pitas!

  10. The pesto for sauce looks tasty! I need to try that!

  11. What kind of grill pan do you have? I think I'm gonna get one for myself.
    I don't have kids, but when I was a kid, I remember helping mom cut vegetables and helping my grandparents make wantons. It creates wonderful memories and even when they are long gone, whenever I make wantons, I think about them.

  12. so cool! happy to be part of a "pita pizza movement"! tonight we are making regular home made pizzas. i might just try to sneak in some left over sun dried tomatoes....

  13. what a great idea to use Pita...I will try that for sure! thanks!

  14. Q - There are a ton of things that fire me up(hey I'm passionate what can I say) like not calling me an athlete BUT improvising my recipes I am all for.

    Makes it so you like it and then I can borrow your ideas afterwards.

    I am thinking of throwing donut seeds down on the next one I make.

  15. Those pita pizzas look delicious! I never thought of using pesto instead of sauce...great idea.

  16. @Christina: I just used the grill pan we got in Ikea. I'm thinking of getting a better one though ;p

    @Julie and Amanda: seems like you guys had a nice time too =)

    @Q: haha! and so Jason replies. ;p

  17. THAT LOOKS SO GOOD!! What a great idea! I bet you two had so much fun together....what great memories she will have cooking with you!!
    No kids yet but I am sure we will have a lot of fun when we do:)
    Have a great weekend!

    P.S. Good call with the much better than pizza sauce:)
