Microwave Pita Pizza in 5 minutes

Anyone who knows to cook, always wants to try and make restaurant stuff at home in their very own healthier and tastier way. I’ve got this undying love for pizza, but the fact that it is cheese &  carb-loaded made me want to try a healthier version of it, using wheat pita, lesser cheese and zero-oil. 😀

The list of ingredients below calls for a non-veg topping of your choice, if required. I usually go for chicken, sausages or tuna, but you could use any kind of meat. When I have a lot of left-over chicken curry, so I shred the chicken and use. Here, I’ve used tuna.

Pita Pizza can be made at home in a microwave within a total of 5 minutes. Beat that! 😀

Serves: 1

Pita Bread -1
Tomato Paste – 1 tbsp
Tuna – 4 tbsp                          //Any non-veg topping of your choice (optional)
Chopped Capsicum – 1 handful
Chopped Onion – a handful
Jalapeño – 1 (chopped)
Black Olives – 2 (chopped)
Mozzarella Cheese – as required
Oregano/Chili flakes or Salt/Pepper – according to taste

Step 1: Place the pita bread on a microwavable plate. Spread tomato paste over it.

Step 2: Top the pita with veggies, tuna, olives & jalapenos. Sprinkle mozzarella, oregano/chili flakes or salt/pepper  according to taste.

Step 3: Microwave for a minute or two, until the cheese melts. Enjoy hot.



By ‘healthy’, all I am referring to, is the switch from the pizza crust to a healthier pita bread. Those of you who are against microwave-ing, could bake the same until the cheese melts.
