Day 59- Mini Margherita Pizza


November 17, 2012 by chicagogrilling365

On this surprisingly sunny and warm November afternoon I decided to grill a take on the margherita pizza. When I was at Whole Foods yesterday I came across these mini pitas.

So, I grabbed the mini pitas, some basil, fresh mozzarella, tomato and day 59 was born! This little snack would go great in the Summertime but today will have to do.

I put the sliced tomatoes in a bowl with extra virgin olive oil and some salt and pepper. I wanted to roast them before putting them on the pita. While the tomatoes were grilling, I brushed a mixture of olive oil and a basil puree on the pita.

Once the tomatoes were cooked I placed them on the pita, topped them with mozzarella, and put them back on the grill. I put the cover on the grill to get the cheese super melty.

This is a cheap and healthy snack. Perfect for sharing! For six mini margherita pizzas is only about 300 calories! Perfect snack for my pre-gym meal!

I forgot to make a balsamic reduction to drizzle over them, but it was just as good.

Thanks for reading!
