A few months ago, when I was reading Vegan Life Magazine, I saw a recipe for 10-minute pitta pizzas. They looked so tasty that even though I hate cooking, I felt compelled to make them.
The original ingredients included olives and artichokes, but I left those off because, well….olives and artichokes. Also, it didn’t include the pesto. Even though it was shown in the photo, it wasn’t listed in the ingredients.
Including preparation and cooking time, they only take about 20-minutes to make and they taste delicious. Winner winner vegan dinner!
Ingredients (Serves 2)
4 x pitta breads
50g chestnut mushrooms
1 tbsp pine nuts
