The Background Story
Pizzita - The Pizza Sandwich in a Pita Pocket

This is just one of the easiest things to make! You can use commercially prepared pitas or you can make your own.  We prefer home-made pita but your favourite will work!

First and foremost, this is a sandwich.  What makes it a pizza sandwich is what you put in it.

Ours almost always has some mozzarella and some grated cheeses (parmesian and/or romano).  A variety of cheeses in your sandwich will embolden the flavours!

Top it the way you like it - it's your pizza ... umm ... sandwich ... umm ... pizza sandwich ... umm ... Pizzita!
