Ingredients

  • 4 large "Greek-style" pocket-less pitas or naan, ideally whole grain
  • 2 Cups Sneaky Chef Smooth Red Pasta Sauce with 8 hidden vegetables (or other pasta sauce)
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 Cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 Teaspoon dried oregano and/or basil (optional)

Directions

Cut pita or naan bread into strips or triangles, easily done with kitchen scissors.

Mix remaining ingredients, including optional oregano or basil if using, in a microwave-safe bowl.

Cover the top of the bowl with a wet paper towel and microwave on high for 1 minute or until heated through.

Serve bread triangles with warm pizza dip.
 

Pita Shopping Tip

Middle Eastern cuisine relies on some fragrant and expensive spices and seasonings such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, coriander, turmeric, and sumac. If possible, buy and store them whole; whole spices have a stronger aroma and flavor.

Pita Cooking Tip

For a stronger flavor and aroma, toast spices before grinding them, and only grind the amount that you need for the recipe. Keeping spices whole until needed extends their shelf life.
