Pita Pizza

This is a great afternoon snack and it's so easy to cook. I personally prefer soft cheese (like Philadelphia) for this recipe but you could substitute it with any cheese, really. Enjoy!

Pi(ta)zza
(About 20 minutes to cook)
You'll need -
Pita bread or dry chappati - 1
Tomatoes - 1 large, chopped fine
Oil - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1 medium, chopped fine
Bell pepper (capsicum) - 1 small, diced
Corn kernels - 50 gms
Paprika or chilli powder - 1.5 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Any soft cheese - 100 gms
Salt to taste

Here's how to -
1. Heat the oil in a pan and add the diced onions. Saute for a couple of minutes and then add finely chopped tomatoes
2. Keep stirring on low heat for about 3 minutes or till the tomatoes turn pulpy
3. Throw in the paprika, cumin powder and salt, give it a stir and then add the capsicum pieces
4. Cover and simmer for another 2 minutes before adding the corn kernels
5. Cover and simmer for a good 7-8 minutes or till the capsicum is cooked
6. Heat another pan and roll out the pita bread (or chapati)
7. Turn it over and make sure both sides are browned before taking it off heat
8. When cool enough to handle, spread the tomato mixture and then spread (or sprinkle) the cheese on top
9. Return pita bread to pan and let cook for a couple of minutes till the cheese starts to melt.
Serve hot
