It’s hard coming up with creative and delicious dinner recipes every night. I always look for something that is somewhat healthy, easy to make, and does not require me to get 1000 pots and pans dirty. I had this idea to create some pita pizzas from a recipe I found years ago. All I needed was protein and then it hit me – this past week after eating out for a few dinners we had collected some leftovers. Steak and teriyaki chicken to be exact. They were just the amounts for an individual pizza.
I took the steak and J took the chicken.
Here’s what you need to make your pita pizza:
steak – 2 to 3 oz.
teriyaki chicken – 2 to 3 oz. (make sure the chicken is fully cooked)
On his pizza I spread a little over a teaspoon of teriyaki sauce onto the pita, cut up the leftover chicken and piled on top. Then I took a piece of string cheese to cover it all.
For my pizza I cut up a few grape tomatoes, I just love the sunburst ones. I then cut the steak into bite sized pieces and piled both onto the pita. I again, took a string cheese and placed over it all.
Bake both pita pizzas at 400F in oven or toaster oven for about 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
It’s a nice, light and easy dinner recipe that I can’t believe I forgot about for years. You can also spread a laughing cow cheese mixed with a little garlic powder to use with plain chicken, but I did not have any on hand.
