Fresh basil. Tomato. Buffalo mozzarella. Those are the basic ingredients for stomach pleasure. Even the sight of the three ingredients on a cutting board bring a smile to my face. I think it was while I was in Italy that I “discovered” caprese salad and also where I fell in love with fresh basil. Since then I’ve made an effort to find buffalo mozzarella (not so easy to find the good stuff but bocconcini cheese balls do the trick) and to keep a constant supply of tomatoes and fresh basil for moments when I crave some Italian simplicity.
Today is one of those days and for lunch I’ve made a super easy and quick pizza.
Ingredients for one pizza:
Thin pita bread – if you prefer to make dough then go for it but I wanted a pizza “NOW”
Tomato sauce, store-bought or homemade
Buffalo mozzarella, cut into slices
Spread the tomato sauce over the pita bread and then arrange the basil leaves on top and then the tomato and finally the cheese. Pop it in the oven for a few minutes just until the cheese melts and there you have a gorgeous and tasty lunch.
