Pum’s favourite recipes…Pitta ‘Pizza’

I quite often do pitta ‘pizzas’ for a quick lunch or dinner.  Basically topping an open pitta bread with any cheese or veggies will give a pizza-like feel but will be sooooo much better for you!

I recently got the inspiration for this version of a pitta ‘pizza’ from ‘Rachel Cooks’ (her blog is great and definitely worth a read).  I have adapted this recipe to make it lighter and simpler.  Her recipe uses provolone cheese which I think would be so yum but for a mid-week dinner I’ve opted to take this out just to keep things really healthy.

Please take a look at her recipe as it looks so good:

Pum’s Pitta Pizza

Ingredients
  1. 1 whole-wheat pitta bread
  2. 2 tbsp. cottage cheese
  3. handful of chives
  4. 5 spears of asparagus
  5. Salt and pepper
What Pum did
  1. Slice open the pitta bread and pop in the toaster for just a minute to warm through and crisp up slightly.
  2. Chop the asparagus into small pieces and dry fry in a pan over a medium heat, shaking and moving regularly as you don’t want to burn.  Test to see when ready (should be cooked but still have some ‘bite’).
  3. Spread 1 tbsp. of cottage cheese over each pitta half.
  4. Top with the cooked asparagus, half the chives finely chopped and some salt and pepper.
  5. Put under the grill for 10 mins (checking carefully).
  6. Serve with the remaining chopped fresh chives.

If I’m having this for a lunch I might serve with a simple salad but if I’m having for a dinner I love eat this alongside oven baked aubergine drizzled in a little olive oil…so tasty!
