BBQ "chicken" Pita Pizzas
Ok, first off, I can not take full credit for this recipe. Not too long ago, I stumbled upon this blog, Peas and Thank You and have really enjoyed it. The author is a mother of two youngins, like me and is a vegan, like me... so naturally I'm hooked. She has lots of great, easy, everyday vegan meal ideas and this recent one for pita pizzas was no exception. So, below is my adaptation of it. Keep in mind, this is "pizza," which means there are no limits or boundaries... knock yourself out with the variations, go crazy, break all the "rules!"
Makes 6 individual sized pizzas
1 package of whole wheat Pita Bread (6 pitas)
BBQ sauce (my fav is from Trader Joes)
1 can of black beans (these beauties take the place of chicken:))
2 stems of kale (washed, stemmed and roughly chopped)
1 bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1/2 c. pineapple (small cubes)
4 cloves of garlic (chopped)
dashes of dried oregano
Super Easy Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the pitas on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven for 3 minutes. Remove them and smother with BBQ sauce. Sprinkle on kale, black beans, bell pepper, pineapple, garlic, and oregano. Drizzle tops of pizza with just a bit of olive oil.
Bake in oven for 5-10 minutes, or until heated through and pita is crispy. You may want to turn your oven to broil for the last minute, if needed.
