Buying a container of jalapenos last week and only using one for my recipe (re: Mango Salsa) left me with a handful of these spicy little suckers and a need for creativity. Instead of letting them rot in my fridge, I knew I had to use them somehow… but jalapenos? They’re tough! Maybe another salsa? Nachos? Jalapeno poppers? Pizza? PIZZA!
After this little brainstorming session, I just knew that pizza, one of my favorite food groups, would be a perfect way to use my jalapenos. Although not the most original recipe, these pita pizzas are an easy way to “spice” up your lunch or dinner.
2 round pieces of pita
6 tablespoons BBQ sauce
2 jalapenos, sliced into circles
1/2 cup pineapple, sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. On a piece of aluminium foil, place two pieces of pita. Spread three tablespoons of BBQ sauce on each piece. Next, top each one with 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, jalapenos, and pineapple. Evenly sprinkle the remaining cheese on the two pizzas. Bake for 20 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!
Have a happy and healthy week!
