Margherita Pita Pizzas

My husband plants the garden and I harvest and cook the fruits of his labor. My favorite way to use plum tomatoes is this easy Margherita Pita Pizza. It is so good! —Rosemarie Weleski, Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania

    I have made this recipe several times! I use a whole wheat pita pocket, and i do add a little more of the garlic powder and italian seasoning, i just sprinkle on each pizza without measuring. My husband loves these as well. When i first made them, i saw him pick one up and start eating it. Then i saw him going back twice for more and i had to make more. Both of us probably eat too many of them! LOL

    I made this with 6" nan bread, and it was wonderful! Also note, the better quality the mozzarella cheese, the better this will taste. I sliced fresh mozzarella (rather than the packaged shredded stuff) on the pizza, and it was so, so yummy. Fresh basil on it really makes for a great tasting pizza too.

    These are very easy to make. I added loads of fresh basil and some garlic salt rather than garlic powder.
