My First Pita Pizza

I've seen pita pizzas on cooking shows or magazines for a while and always planned on trying this brilliant, no-fuss dish. Well, as you can see, I bit the pita bullet and made a "pizza" with goat cheese, mushrooms, red onion and parsley. My favorite aspect is that the pita gets crunchy and crisp, which surprised and delighted me.

Here's what I did: lightly cooked the onions and mushrooms in a pan (separately), put the goat cheese and veggies on the pita and popped it into a 350 degree oven for 10 - 15 min (probably could've used a few more minutes, but per usual, I was impatient). Then, I sprinkled on the parsley and voila, I had an unusual, but very simple breakfast! I recommend trying your hand at making these pizzas; I know they're going to help break up the at-home eating monotony for me!

Ooh, what a lovely idea! I love goat cheese and pita pizzas, but I never thought to cook the onions and the mushrooms separately. I am sure they added a wonderful, savory flavor. I will add this to my rotation!

Hi, PE! I am usually not so devoted to cooking things separately, but there WAS all that time waiting for the oven to preheat. :P
