It’s been a while since I’ve made pizza at home. I would usually go crazy with toppings and end up with a mountain-high pizza with soggy crust. This time I decided to keep it simple and use pita bread as pizza crust.
I spread plum jam with vinaigrette sauce over the bread, layered it with cheddar and mozzarella cheese, thin slices of zucchini (courgette), sweet potatoes and red onions, pre-cooked diced chicken and more cheese. A sprinkling of sweet paprika and chipotle powder before it went to the oven for 15 minutes at 200C.
If you want to try this medley, the plum jam pizza sauce is best paired with thick slices of camembert instead of cheddar. And the pita bread is sure to give you a crispy thin crust!

When my children were young, they liked pita pizza.

They don’t like it as much now? I like that it’s light and crispy. Doesn’t make me feel guilty and bloated.

Great toppings for pizza Dolly. You got me with the sweet potato/sweet paprika and chipotle combination. Wonderful textures and colors within you photographs. Lovely props.

I always use sweet paprika and chipotle in anything I cook nowadays. My two favorite spices at the moment! Regarding props, I think I have more than what I can use. I need to blog more often!

When I was a kid I used to love pita pizzas. Gotta rock these things again soon!

It looks very tasty. Poppy makes his pizza crust in the bread machine but this would be much quicker. Question: Does the sweet potato bake through and through or is it pre-cooked? Love the pictures, too!

Hi Mom Betty, the sweet potatoes are sliced very thinly so no need to pre-cook them. I didn’t see Poppy’s bread machine when I was there. Did he purposely hid it from me? Just kidding =)
