Recipe: Pesto Pita Pizzas

1 04 2011

Say that three times fast.

I sort of hate when people tell me to say something three times fast, so I apologize.

Ok, Pesto Pita Pizzas. Are surprisingly delicious. Hence, they make it to my blog. You may have noticed that I don’t love to cook very much, but Tami made these for a few friends and me the other night and I just had to bring them home. And by “bring them home” I mean drive to Trader Joe’s and buy the ingredients for myself.



PPPs require four ingredients from Trader Joes:

  1. Whole Wheat Middle Eastern Flatbread
  2. Genova Pesto
  3. Pecorino Romano Cheese
  4. Cherry Tomatoes

I added that last one myself. See? I’m such a chef.

What I love about this is that it’s ridiculously simple yet disproportionately delicious as compared to the required effort.


  1. Heat oven to Broil.
  2. Lay pitas out.
  3. Cover with a lot of pesto. A lot.

  4. Put three or so thin slices of Romano on each pita.


    Next add the Romano.

  5. Cut tomatoes as you see fit and place desired amount of on each slice.


    Then add the tomatoes...

  6. Put sheet in oven for, like, ten minutes or something. Until the breads bubble up.
  7. Take out before something catches fire.

I like this because it’s open to interpretation. And hence forgiving to errors. Anyway, when they’re done, they are delicious and warm. The cheese is super salty and a little bit goes a long way. The pesto is surprisingly delicious for pre-made food, and the tomato is there to pretend that this is healthy in some way.

Simple, fast, delicious. I <3 pesto pita pizzas.
