lazy days

marketpitapizza

This is one of those meals that even in your laziest moments turns out amazing. No dough rolling or unthawing, just a simple whole wheat pita topped with some healthy goodness.
I have to tell you, as of late, I have become obsessed with tomato pesto. It tastes good on everything... well almost. So forget sauce on pizza it's all about the pesto it really is. Finish it off with wasabi arugula (which I never knew existed before but tastes pretty darn good), roasted red peppers, olives, fresh tomatoes and goat cheese and it's sure to be a pleaser. I think I ate this just about three times last week. Yep that good.
It being so super easy, just top all your faves on to a pita and stick it on a pizza stone or pan and set into a oven at 350 d for about 10-15 min or until your cheese has melted and you're good to go.

I was a pesto virgin until I started blogging but am now a convert. Love it to death. Next time I'll try making my own sundried tomatoes as well. I've never even heard of wasabi argula....sounds intriguing. Beautiful pictures as usual ....but you know that already right!

Loving your use of "white" space as usual here. I've definitely made plenty of pita pizzas in my day, especially when working my old crazy job. And I ADORE white pizza, especially pesto (though should it be called "green" then?). This is making me quite hungry =). Oh by the way, I'd love to ask you a few questions about how you got started selling prints on Etsy if you're willing sometime.
