Pita Pizza

Visiting Munira in Dallas, we made our favorite homemade pizza using Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Pita Bread. They make a nice crispy crust, and it's a super easy way to make tasty personal size pizzas (no slicing required). Use your favorite veggies, and optionally top with sauteed tofu, our new favorite addition (recommended by brother Jeff -- thank you!). Note that you can use pesto in place of tomato sauce as a base for some of them if you want more variety, and let people make/top their own pizzas for some fun.

Ingredients

TJ's Whole Wheat Pita Bread
1 jar tomato sauce (we use Rao)
1 package firm tofu (drained/pressed)
2 T oil

3 cloves garlic, diced
1 C fresh basil leaves
1 T dried oregano or italian spice mix
2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 small can olives, sliced 

Your favorite mix of chopped vegetables, like:
Onion (1 large or 2 small), sliced
Mushrooms, sliced
Bell pepper, sliced
Squash or eggplant, sliced in half moons
Spinach leaves
Tomatos, sliced

Instructions

Place crusts on thin cookie sheets covered by a silicon liner. Optionally brush the crusts with oil.

Saute the onions a few minutes; add garlic and other vegetables (except maybe spinach and tomatoes, if using). If adding tofu, cut tofu into chunks and saute in oil with red pepper flakes and garlic. Spoon marinara onto crust, top with herbs, spinach, and olives; then add veggies and finally tofu. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Yum!

Even more tofu!


Photos below are from 2018 when we made pizza from a large whole grain crust from Trader Joes. TJ's doesn't carry it anymore, but we prefer these whole wheat pita pizzas now, anyway. They're just the right size, taste great, and fit easily in the freezer so they're available when we get the craving :)
