This is a perfect weekend meal to throw together or for those days where you just cannot be bothered spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
This recipe should take a maximum of 15 minutes to prepare and cook and is great as a main meal or to share with others for a light entree.
Why not get the kids involved and have a 'make your own' pizza night. Involving the kids in the kitchen allows them to develop their cooking skills and foster a positive relationship with food and cooking from a young age.
1x packet of wholemeal pita breads

If you want to make it more filling, add any leftover meat or vegetables that you have in the fridge to bulk it up.
If you are one to like a lot of flavour, you could also add extra dried oregano or basil on the base.
