easy as pie

who doesn't like an easy, kid-friendly, quick recipe?  i sure do.  this is for one of those busy evenings when dinner jumps up on you.  you look at the clock.  it's 5pm and you think, "where has this day gone!?!" and you have no plans for dinner.  all you need is just a few ingredients to whip it up.  i call it a pita pizza pie.  enjoy!

pita pizza pie

pita, whole (preferably the softer flat-bread, greek kind or naan bread works perfectly, too!) 
olive oil
pizza sauce (or use the recipe for marinara)
mozzarella cheese, shredded
fresh mozzarella, sliced and torn into bits
sharp cheddar, shredded (i like a little sharp cheddar on my pizza.  not too much, just a little.)
parmigiano-reggiano, shredded
tomato, sliced
fresh basil

heat grill to medium.  brush olive oil on the bottom of pita.  dress your pita like you would a pizza.  (note to self:  don't add SO much cheese.  sometimes i get a little cheese happy.)  sprinkle a little salt on the fresh mozzarella and tomatoes to enhance the flavor.  cook on the grill just until cheeses are melted.  make sure not to overcook because the pita will burn quickly.  remove from heat, let sit for 10 minutes and eat.  have fun coming up with your own pita pizza pie ingredient combinations!
