Pita Bread Pizza

One of my all time, favorite, bestest lunch ever: Flatbread pizza.  Let me tell you why. 
1.  it’s easy
2.  it’s filing
3.  it’s easy to switch it up so I never get bored
4.  it’s easy
5.  it’s easy
6.  it’s easy

Lunch time is my hardest meal.  Middle of the day, don’t want to spend a lot of time making something, and I want to make sure it’s healthy and filling to last me until dinner. Because let’s face it..if I can’t make it until dinner..I’ll go on a rampage looking into every closet and cupboard in the house trying to find something, ANYTHING, to satisfy my growling, neglected stomach. So, flatbread pizza is a staple for me. (and my stomach).

Ingredients:
1 pita (not split)
cheese (what ever amount you like. Some like it cheesy while others like just a dusting of cheese.)
3 Tablespoons spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Any pizza toppings you like

The how-to:
*preheat oven to 400*
*on a sprayed or parchemnt lined cookie sheet, place the pita
*spray both sides of the pita with cooking spray
*place in the oven for 3-4 minutes, take out, flip over, put back in the oven for an additional 3-4 minutes, or just until it’s crispy. (Watch carefully so it won’t burn.)
*when the pita is the desired crispiness for a crust, take out of oven, and reduce heat to 350*
*add the spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning and any other seasoning  you’d like
*sprinkle a bit of cheese on top of the spaghetti sauce
*add the pizza toppings of your choice. For the pizza shown below, I used: pineapple tidbits, onions, and cubed chicken (already cooked).
*top with additional cheese

*with the pizza still on the cookie sheet, place back in the oven and bake until cheees is melted and bubbly and pizza is heated through.
*take out of oven and let rest for a few minutes before cutting into wedges

Easy-peasy and oh so filling.  The crust is crisp and perfectly baked while the toppings are full of favor, which gives your tastebuds a little reason to celebrate. Perfect for lunch, dinner or even a snack.
