Delicious homemade pita bread and a pizza

I made this pita bread recipe recently. It was really easy, really quick, and really good. Soooo much better than grocery store pita. Maybe if you live in a city with lots of Middle Eastern groceries and restaurants you can get better pita than I can, but if not, then go ahead and make this, you’ll love it. I don’t have a pizza stone so I did it on my metal pizza pan and it worked fine. I could only make one at a time, tho!

When I did it it made 6 pieces. So I froze some of them to bake up fresh later.

Around that time, the rest of my tomatoes that I had brought inside to ripen were ripe. I wanted to use them but wasn’t sure how so I just cooked them down in a saucepan with some olive oil, sea salt, and garlic.

I thought about making soup or something but they cooked down a lot so there wasn’t really enough to do anything big with.

I remembered the pita dough I had in the freezer so I took it out and defrosted it in the fridge.

Then I rolled it out, brushed it with olive oil, put shredded mozarella and the cooked down tomatoes on top and popped it in a 500 degree oven for 10 minutes. It was really perfect! The pita rolled out nice and thin like I like. Thinking I might use it as a pizza dough recipe again!

It’s not really any kind of revelation to use pita dough as pizza dough, all doughs are the made of the same basic ingredients. But still, I was pretty happy about how it turned out.

Do you have any other odd bread dough recipes you like to make into pizzas?
