OK, so I’ve made that name up, but pitta pizza seemed a little lame and may give the impression of an actual pizza.
As you may notice many of my recipes are based on the concept of using up stuff left in the fridge and freezer in meals that can be on the plate in about 20mins or so. This is no exception.
– 2 lebanese flatbreads, mine were from the freezer
– some olives, pitted and halved
– 2 sausages, cooked, skinned and broken/ cut into little pieces. You could use whatever left over meat, salami, hams etc… you have
– 4 teaspoons of black olive tepanade
– in this case, 2 tablespoons of tomato pasta sauce, but sundried tomato paste is fine.
– few slices of cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese you like)
Spoon 2 teaspoon fulls of tepanade onto each bread and spread around evenly, do the same with the tomato sauce.
Sprinkle the olives and sausage evenly over the breads.
Place the cheese around the bread as well.
Place under a hot grill until the cheese melts and the edges just begin to brown up.
Remove from the grill and eat like a pizza or better still, fold in half and eat like a calzone.

This is a very exciting way of getting your kids involve in preparing their dinner and appreciate food more ( for picky eaters that is).
You can also use leftover ragu sauce for the pizza base. 😌
Thanks Retchel. Yes, even my 19mth old loves to help out with the cooking and he’ll always at least try to eat something he’s been involved in cooking!
The Ragu is a great idea and would work well. I sometimes will blend some sundried tomatoes (in the oil) and use that as well.
