Preparation for Mini Pita Pizza
Put the diced tomato in a sieve over a bowl and push as much of the water out of the tomatoes, as possible.
Spread the tomato sauce over the mini pitas. Sprinkle the soft cheese. Add the peppers and onions. Sprinkle the meat, fish or bacon, if desired. Sprinkle the grated, hard cheese. Add the tomatoes.
Tip: I like to use a pizza pan with holes but you can use a regular cookie sheet.
Bake at 425 F for about 6 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges of the pita are golden brown.
Hint: This pizza is delicious hot but it can be kept in the fridge for up to four days.
You can also pack it for lunch with an ice pack, remove it from the ice pack thirty minutes before you want to eat so that it can warm up to room temperature, and enjoy.
Of course, you can also use regular size pitas for this recipe.
Equipment for Mini Pita Pizza
The pizza pan with holes is good because it allows for air and heat to penetrate more easily to the bottom of the pitas which gives a crisper crust.

Measuring Cups & Spoons – I like this set because the cups and spoons nest inside each other and they have comfortable handles.
