Here is a great recipe for whipping up some personal pita bread pizzas at home using fresh ingredients from the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers’ market. We’ve even put together a 4 1/2 minute video to make it even easier.
1 Package of Pita’s from Maria’s Bakery
1 Jar of Alla Vodka sauce from Joy of Garlic
1 Jar of Pesto, also from Joy of Garlic
1 Package fresh mozzarella cheese from Blue Moon Creamery
1 Pound of fresh ground beef from JD Beef
1 Fresh onion (diced)
1 Fresh green pepper (diced)
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Lightly grease the bottom of a cookie sheet.
Brown the ground beef (there won’t be much grease to drain.)
Saute’ 1/2 of your veggies in olive oil
Mix three to four tablespoons of Alla Vodka Sauce with one tablespoon of Pesto per pita
Break apart the mozzarella into crumb-like pieces
Spread two to three heaping tablespoons of pesto mixture on pita
Add your favorite ingredients
Top with mozzarella cheese
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes to reach desired browning of bread’s edges.
