Mushroom, Spinach, and Mozzarella Pita Pizza

Print Recipe

Today’s recipe is probably the easiest lunch I have ever made, aside from maybe pouring a bowl of cereal.

My particular concoction includes ricotta cheese as the “sauce base,” but you could certainly use a tomato-based sauce.

You can mix up the veggies any way you like. The possibilities are endless. 😛

To make one pizza, you will need:

  • 1 pita bread “crust”
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbs ricotta cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3-4 sliced button mushrooms
  • 4-5 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • small handful of spinach leaves
  • 1/4c mozzarella cheese

Start by preheating your oven to 400.

Peel your garlic clove and slice it in half. Rub it all over the pita bread to release the oil and give it a slight garlic flavor.

Drizzle the crust with olive oil, and spread with ricotta cheese.

Or, as I said, you can use a tomato-based sauce here. Or any other sauce that strikes your fancy. Totally up to you!

Season the ricotta with a light sprinkling of salt and pepper.

Add the sliced mushrooms and halved tomatoes.

Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese, and add the spinach leaves on top.

Bake at 400 for around 8 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.

Enjoy! 🙂
