This past Saturday, Nicky Mesiah of Mesiah Event Planners shared some of her delicious and healthful treats & recipes with the folks at the farmerâ€™s market – Pita Bruschetta Pizzas, Cabbage & Apple Waldorf Salad and a killer Chocolate Zucchini/Carrot Cake! All Nickyâ€™s fantastic creations take advantage of the produce thatâ€™s in season right now. They not only taste amazing but theyâ€™re good for you too!
Nicky shared her Pita Pizza recipe with us. Try it at home tonight!
NICKYâ€™S PITA BRUSCHETTA/THIN CRUST PITA PIZZAS:
Whole wheat pita bread (pocket pitas & split in Â½)
Basil Olive Oil (drizzle on each half of pita)
Garlic Powder (not garlic salt or, fresh garlic)
A shake or 2 of Dried Fennel
Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
A little Dried Rosemary
Tomatoes (fresh, canned, or freshly baked)
Goat Cheese or, fresh Mozzarella from Belgiovineâ€™s
Pepperoni/salami/turkey products/lamb-protein of your choice, leftover meat or tofu based products
Green Peppers optional & crushed red peppers for added kick
Divide the pocket pita in half & layer in the order listed & sprinkle with another shake of oregano before baking. Place on a round pizza pan or, on cookie sheet & bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Just that simple!
