Tomato Basil {Personal} Pizza

We eat this on nights when we would normally eat out. It's quick, easy and OH SO YUMMY! I make cheese ones for the kids, and tomato basil for Daddy and Mommy. I hope you like these as much as we do!

Makes aprox. 4 pizzas


  • Plumb Tomatoes; 2 or 3 (Sliced into rounds.)
  • Fresh Basil - chopped (We like a Tbsp or two on each pizza)
  • Whole Wheat Pita Bread
  • Olive Oil or Coconut Oil - 5 or 6 Tbsp
  • Fresh Garlic - 4 or 5 cloves
  • Low Moisture Mozzarella Cheese (Grated)
  • Optional: Grilled chicken
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

"Sauce:" In a microwave safe bowl, poor in you choice of oil. (Maybe 2 Tbsp. per pizza.) Peal your garlic cloves. Crush them over your bowl of oil and add all the garlic to the bowl. Heat the oil in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. You just need it warm. Then remove it from the microwave and crush the garlic a little more with a fork. (You want as much flavor as possible.) I add a dash of salt and pepper at this point too. That's it! You have your sauce!

Spread the sauce on your pita bread. Add just a sprinkle of cheese. Then add your tomatoes and basil. *Again, we like a lot of basil. You decide how much you want.* (If you want a little protein in your meal, add chicken.) Then top with more cheese. Thats it!

Cook for 8 minutes. We make 4 pizzas at a time on Papered Chef baking stone. You just want the cheese golden and bubbly. Then it's done!
