Pitta pizza

Yummy.   Our quick pitta pizza went down a treat last night for tea in Scrapsville.  Marcus is turning into a regular Gordon Ramsay.  I loved our time together in the kitchen.  It was inspiring watching my tweenie work.  His tomato sauce was a superb treat.  Totally tasty!

And here's the proof just in case he never ever cooks again.

To make pitta pizza you will need:
Pitta Bread (wholemeal if you a trying to be healthy and the kids will never know)
Buffalo mozzarella
Plum tomatoes
Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Basil
1/4 tsp Mixed Herbs
Garlic puree or lazy garlic (the real thing if you don't mind the extra time)
Tomato Puree
(you could add salt but we chose not to as Angelo was eating with us too)
Your fave toppings.  We had peppers, (pickled) whole garlic cloves,  black olives, pepperoni, mushrooms and red onion.

Put your uncut pitta bread to one side on a baking tray.
Prepare your cheese by draining and slicing.  You could rip it up with younger ones too.
Make your tomato base sauce by mixing the tomatoes minus the juice from on tin of plum toms.  (you can use fresh, but they will need to be skinned) in a bowl  and add Oragano, Black Pepper, Basil, Mixed herbs, garlic and tomato puree to taste.  (taste)
Create your pizza by spooning the base mix onto the pitta (leaving a small margin around the edge of your bread). Add toppings and then cheese. 
Bake i the oven for 10-15 min on 180-200 c

Voila.  Enjoy your pitta pizza.
