Prep:5min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Spread tomato pesto onto one side of each pitta, and place them pesto side up on a baking tray. Top with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, feta and Parmesan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven or until pitta is crisp. Cut into quarters and serve.

Parmesan cheese

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

I make these with Ham, cheese n spinach with the tomato puree base but I grill mine for 10 minutes and you get a much crispier pizza! Also don't add mushrooms or plum tomatoes because they hold too much liquid which makes for a soggy pitta yuk!!! - 14 Sep 2016
