This reminds me slightly of the Italian stone oven pizzas. I use a basting brush to evenly coat the pita rather than drizzle oil randomly. I also seperated the ringlets of the onion and spread them around the pita.I also do the tomatoes very thin.THe kids love this, hubby too. I make this often using pepperoni instead of bacon to speed up the prep time.
Wonderful. We grow Roma tomatos only. I tried this with fresh basil from our garden... my wife tells me that it caused a near riot at her work.... Works for me. I use the Roma tomatos from our garden, and fresh basil from my patio. Don't bother cutting into wedges... I just fold it in half like a gyro...
