Artichoke pizzas in under 10 minutes

>> Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Ok, so this is for all my friends who claim they don't have time to cook when they get home from work. Here is a family friendly (kid friendly -- at least I assume they would eat this) meal that can be whipped up in just a matter of minutes and is delicious! This meal will be on the table before you could find the number of your local pizzeria and place an order for delivery. 

All you need to pull these individual size pizzas together is:

2 pita breads, split horizontally (lay flat on a cutting board and press flat with your hand -- slice slowly with a long knife to make two circular pieces, not half moons)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 12-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained and sliced
1 6-ounce jar arthchokes, drained and cut in half
1/4 cup roasted almonds, chopped
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar (6 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Heat the broiler and pop your pizza stone in the oven in the bottom third position to heat while prepping your ingredients.  Drizzle your pita halves, cut side up, with two tablespoons olive oil and pop in the oven on the pizza stone for just a couple minutes to crisp up.  Keep a close eye on this as they are done before you know it.

Pull your bread from the oven and top with the red peppers, artichokes, almonds, Cheddar, and oregano.  Broil until the cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes.  Serve with green beans (I like mine lemony) or a salad and enjoy!! See, less than 10 minutes!

You have my 2 favorite pizza toppings (artichokes and roasted red peppers. Your right Pita does make a quick and handy crust.
