Pita bread pizzas

19 Oct

When it’s this hot out, the last thing I want to do is log hours in the kitchen. Our current favorite go-to meal is pita bread pizzas. Pita bread is easy to find in Dakar as it’s made locally and sold through many supermarket chains and bakeries. (My favorite is from Layal bakery.)

  • Since pita bread is light and thin, go very easy on the sauce and toppings. Use maybe 1/3 the amount you think you should. 🙂
  • Rather than baking it, just broil it for 4-5 minutes, keeping a close eye on it.
  • Eat it quickly! It’s delicious hot, but can get soggy if it sits. (But who’s going to let something this delicious sit anyway?)

Our favorite pita pizzas right now are:

Tomato paste + sprinkling of basil, thyme and oregano + mozzarella + pepperoni + parmesan

Steamed spinach + dollop of Shady Shack garlic sauce + oregano + parmesan + mozzarella
