Pitta Pizzas

Still on the topic of school lunches today I’m sharing a standby that goes down particularly well with my boys.  Pitta pizzas.  Great served hot at home for lunch or an anytime snack but equally good cold in the school lunch box.  The nice thing about pizzas is that you get to choose the toppings you like and for the boys that usually includes some chopped ham or salami.

You will need:
1 pitta bread
sundried tomato pesto or tomato puree (or in case of emergency Ketchup!)
grated cheddar (or torn mozzarella or crumbled feta etc..)
toppings – in this case cherry tomatoes & chorizo

heat the pitta in the toaster to puff it up a bit and cut it in half
coat each half with tomato pesto
sprinkle on the cheese
add the toppings
grill until cheese is melted

These can be as fancy or as plain as you like.  My favourite would be cooked chicken pieces, feta, red onion & torn basil.  A sprinkling of dried mixed herbs could really spruce up a Margherita version.
The next question to be answered is how do you get the pitta pizza to work in a school lunch box.

Firstly allow it to cool.  Next cut a piece of parchment paper to put between the two halves to prevent them from sticking together.  Finally pop it into a sandwich bag and it’s good to go.

I will be posting an easy dinner recipe on Thursday but in the meantime happy lunch making!
Til next time, Sheila.
