Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - pitta bread pizza bites

When you are in a hurry and have a little tomato sauce in the freezer along with some frozen pitta bread these are so quick and easy to make they are a god send!

Finger foods - pitta bread pizza bites (from 9 months)

Great finger food or for the packed lunch box
6 pitta breads
Olive oil
1 tin of plum tomatoes
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon tomato puree
Some fresh or dried herbs for the sauce and to top the pizza with
1 ball of fresh mozzarella torn or cut into small pieces or 6 tablespoons of grated cheddar cheese

  1. First, make the tomato sauce by frying the garlic in a little oil on a low heat for 10 seconds (careful as garlic burns easily)
  2. Then add the puree, tinned tomatoes and herbs and cook on a low heat for 30 minutes. Once cooked, puree the sauce with a hand blender to a smooth paste. You don't have to puree the sauce if you don't have time
  3. Spoon the tomato sauce onto the pitta breads and then place the cheese on top and finish off by sprinkling some herbs on the cheese.
  4. Place under a medium grill for a couple of minutes until the cheese is bubbling
  5. Slice into fingers and serve as a main course, place in a lunch box or as finger food.


You can always double the quantity of tomato sauce to keep in the fridge (up to three days) or freezer to use at a later date.

You can add all kinds of toppings to these pizzas – ham, sweetcorn, spinach, fresh tomatoes, pineapple – basically anything that does not need to cook and can just be warmed up under the grill.
