I’m a huge pizza lover, and what I’m really in to is a real Italian style thin crust pizza! But as such, I’m usually disappointed with take out. And the frozen pizza? Well, I would lie if I’d say I never buy it, but we all know it’s not the real deal, not to mention that they’re full of sugar salt and other unhealthy ingredients. There are also nice restaurants making real Italian style pizza.. But with two young kids and living on a budget, I don’t go that much to restaurants anymore. And no, I haven’t yet mastered the art of making my own dough.
And yet, I enjoy the Italian style thin crust pizza at home every week now, and it’s cheaper than takeout!
And it’s really a such a simple idea, that I feel almost embarrassed to dedicate a whole blog post to it, but in case you never tried it, here it is: pita bread. Let it soak in. And now imagine: thin crust, perfect home-made pizza.
It’s really just as good. And you can probably even buy a whole grain one.
Mad it makes the fastest homemade pizzas ever!
Here are my two family favourites:
Mushroom & pepperoni :
Good quality pepperoni ( or salami!)
Goat cheese & sun-dried tomatoes :
Simply spread the tomato sauce on pita bread, add cheese and all the toppings (except for arugula). Broil for around 10 minutes. Serve with a side salad or a simple soup. So simple!
It may be my favourite mom hack ever, and I hope that you’ll try it and let me know if you liked it too!
