Very good pita pizza concept here, although I think the directions could use some clarification. I preheated my oven to highest setting, which is 550 - after 6 minutes I noticed smoke from the exhaust and the pizza's were quite crisp and plenty browned! If I had walked away for 10 minutes until the buzzer sounded... Since every oven is different, actual degree's might be more helpful. I made one each for my DH and I for lunch today and used crumbled goat cheese in place of the mozz - even with the zingy cheese, fresh basil and black olives, we felt these were a little plain. I wonder if sauteeing the ingredients before topping the pizza would bring the Italian flavors out more or if baking more slowly at a lower temp would bring out the flavors. Made for My 3-Chefs game.
