Roasted Red Pepper Pita Pizzas

Roasted Red Pepper Pita Pizzas

Makes 4

30 minutes or fewer

Jarred roasted red peppers create a speedy homemade sauce for these mini pizzas, but you can also roast your own red peppers to cut down on sodium.
  • 1 cup jarred roasted red peppers, rinsed and drained (2 large peppers), plus more for garnishing pizzas, if desired
  • 6 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained, plus 1 Tbs. oil
  • 2 6 ½-inch whole-wheat pita rounds, split apart to make 4 thin rounds
  • Dried oregano, for sprinkling
  • ¼ lb. (1 ball) fresh mozzarella cheese, drained and thinly sliced
  • 16 small fresh basil leaves

1. Preheat oven to broil. Purée red peppers and sun-dried tomatoes and their oil in food processor 1 to 2 minutes, or until smooth.

2. Place pita rounds on baking sheet. Spread 1/4 cup red pepper sauce on cut side of each pita. Sprinkle with oregano, then top with mozzarella and garnish with sliced red peppers, if desired. Broil 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Scatter basil leaves over pizzas, and serve immediately.

I second Carrie's vote - these are great for work lunches, etc! Works well with soy cheese shreds too :)
