Ingredients
  1. 4 pitta breads
For the sauce
  1. 1 x 400 g can high quality tomatoes
  2. 1 clove of garlic
  3. 1 tsp mixed dried herbs
  4. pinch of salt
  5. 1 tsp sugar
Toppings
  1. 2 x tomatoes
  2. 200 g cheese (ideally mozarella but I used cheddar)
  3. 50 g olives, sliced
Instructions
  1. Pre heat the oven to 200C
To make the sauce in the ThermoCook
  1. Put the canned tomatoes, garlic, salt, sugar and herbs into the ThermoCook
  2. Process on 'Smoothie' for 30 seconds until all the ingredients are blended
  3. Set to 90C, speed 2 for 10 minutes
To make the sauce on the stove
  1. Blend the tomatoes with the garlic, salt, sugar and herbs
  2. Pour into a pan and simmer for 10 minutes
  3. To make the Quick and Easy Pitta Pizzas, spread the sauce on the Pitta Pizzas (there is more than enough sauce for 8 pizzas, so you can freeze half for another time if you don't use it all)
  4. Top with sliced fresh tomatoes, cheese and olives (or toppings of your choice)
  5. Place on a baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbling.
Notes
  1. Serve with salad and coleslaw or if you are really hungry, cook some oven chips while you are making the sauce and they will be ready at the same time as the Pitta Pizzas.

 I made the sauce for the Quick and Easy Pitta Pizzas in my Optimum ThermoCook which is brilliant for making sauces, everything goes into the ThermoCook and is blended then cooked right in the blender.  You can read my review of the ThermoCook and to find out more, please click through the ThermoCook picture in my side bar on the right of this post. 

Quick and Easy Pitta Pizzas, for those nights when you are short of time

The Quick and Easy Pitta Pizzas were really good and I also loved the tomato sauce, it was really flavourful for a sauce cooked for such a short time, amazing!  I served the sauce served with meatloaf later in the week and it worked really well, it is now my ‘go to’ tomato sauce.

      You can tell we love olives, but I’m sure they wouldn’t suit everyone, I think it is fun to let everyone choose their own toppings

    This is a super idea when you are in a hurry and want a speedy dinner or snack. I always find I prefer hot sandwiches compared to cold for lunch , this would make a great’hot ‘snack

      We can’t even order pizza, Heidi as we live too far out into the countryside and no one will deliver! But you are right, takeaways are not all they are cracked up to be and you can make something much better and just as quick at home.

    I LOVE pitta bread pizzas and have a 5:2 diet one with smoked salmon (on L and L) that you might like, as it is low in calories! Your pitta pizzas here look VERY tasty and I perfect for a savoury Tea Time Treats entry too! Karen

    Ooh yes, great idea. I haven’t done pitta bread pizzas in ages. Will definitely add olives to the next ones I do.
