I was foraging through the fridge the other day looking for something easy for dinner. I had leftover Greek pitas from my "Seduction Pizza" recipe, juicy tomatoes hanging around and the right ingredients to whip up some pesto!
Easy decision! Pesto Tomato Personal Pizzas.
I LOVE this pizza. It's fast, satisfying and super delicious. Make it NOW. (OK, tomorrow then. I understand. You have to go shopping to buy everything.)
This makes two but it's easily scaled down if you are a single person and easily doubled, etc. if you are making them for a number of people.
Here's what you'll need:
2 Greek style pitas*
2 vine ripened tomatoes
8 T pesto (click here for recipe)
1 cup shredded mozarella cheese
*Keep these on hand in your freezer
for an easy pizza night. If you're single,
it will keep them fresh so you're not
always throwing stuff away!
|Slice your tomatoes "East/West" |
as opposed to "North/South".

A tomato knife by Henckel! Pretty cool!
|Place your 2 pitas on a cookie sheet...|
If you like, you can spray the sheet with non-stick spray.
Spread 4 T pesto over each pita base...
|Add 1 sliced tomato on top of each pita...|
Don't worry if some of the "tomato guts" drop out!
See? I have empty spots - no problem.
|Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese over each pizza.|
Go ahead and use more if you like!
These are guidelines :-)
Place in a 350 degree oven for about 1/2 an hour
until the cheese is bubbly and golden to your liking!
|Right out of the oven...|
Ready to be devoured!

So easy, so delicious!
Serve with a green salad using, of course,
my best ever Italian vinaigrette!
