Toddler Food - Pitta Pizza

I don't confess to being a food blogger so please be nice. I'm not a bad cook but I'm not the best. I have my dishes that I can cook which are mainly lasagna, spaghetti bolognaise or pie. I make a mean meat and potato pie :)

But we have been trying to come up with different meals for Paige to eat. One of my favourite that everyone loved at her birthday party was pitta pizzas. They are very easy, quick and make a fabulous lunch.


What you need...

Pitta bread
tomato puree
cheese
choice of toppings

Basically what you do is make a pizza but using a pitta bread instead of a pizza base. I do love making homemade pizza bases but you have to leave them to rise and they take quite a while to make. A pitta bread is so much easier and quicker. You can use whole wheat pitta bread like we do to make it healthier too and Paige doesn't even know the difference.





I love that you can load them up with different toppings. We went for lactose free cheese, ham and sweetcorn but you could have tuna, chicken, peppers, tomato, pineapple, anything you fancy really.


You then just pop them under the grill for a few minutes until the cheese melts and the pitta cooks :) Paige loves these pitta pizzas. She would have them everyday if I let her. I can't wait until she is polder and she can help make the pitta pizzas herself. I think it would be a fun little activity for a child to make their own and then eat it :) You could also make funny faces to make it a bit more interesting.


I hope you liked this slightly different post. I know it's not the hardest thing to do but I'm all about quick, easy and simple lunches :)

Thanks for reading,

Nicola Xx
