Bruschetta Style Pita Pizza Recipe

Within 10 minutes, you can make a Bruschetta Style Pita Pizza which is a recipe from Cheap Recipe Blog. Though the writer indicates that making the crust crispy, the cheese melted and the tomatoes slightly warmed is a tad bit difficult to perfect, the dish itself is worth it as it resembles a delicious traditional bruschetta. 

For sauce:
1 small can chopped tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
Garlic powder, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste

For pizzas:
4 whole wheat pita shells
1 small container fresh mozzarella

  1. To make bruschetta-style pizza sauce: Empty can of tomatoes into a mixing bowl. Using a microplane grater, grate garlic into the tomatoes. Add sugar, olive oil, and spices to taste. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400F. Place pita shells directly on the oven grate and heat for 2 to 3 minutes, to crisp slightly. Remove from oven and place mozzarella on top of pita shells. Return to oven and bake for another 5 minutes, or until cheese is slightly melted. Remove from oven again and place a few tablespoons of tomatoes on top of each pizza. Avoid putting too much of the liquid on the crust - try to get chunks of tomatoes instead. Return pizzas to oven for a minute or two, until the tomatoes are slightly warmed. Remove from oven and serve.
