Veggie Pita Pizza

You can have this pizza on the table quicker than you can place an order for take-out pizza, and it's designed especially for two!

1 pita bread (6 inches in diameter)
2 to 4 tablespoons pizza sauce or pasta sauce
1 small zucchini, chopped (1 cup)
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped (1/2 cup)
2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 ounce)


Split pita bread around edge with knife to make 2 rounds. Spread pizza sauce on bread halves; place on small microwavable plates.

Place zucchini and onion in 2-cup microwavable casserole. Microwave uncovered on HIGH 2 minutes 30 seconds to 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in tomatoes, olives, salt and basil.

Spoon vegetables onto bread halves; top with cheese. Microwave uncovered on HIGH for 45 to 60 seconds or until hot. Cut into wedges.

Additional Information

English muffins make a great stand-in for the pita bread. Toast them first before piling on the toppings.

For a special touch, choose your own favorite toppings, perhaps pineapple tidbits, chopped Canadian-style bacon, sliced pepperoni or chopped bell peppers.
