Not sure where I got this but it makes a light lunch or quick snack. Sometimes I even have it for breakfast. I prefer whole wheat pita but feel free to use white.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill/broiler.
  2. In a small bowl, combine tomato, olive oil, oregano, basil, salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Carefully slice open the pita so that you have two rounds and place on a baking sheet, cut side up.
  4. Spread each pita round with 1-2 tablespoons of ricotta cheese.
  5. Spread half of the tomato mixture onto each round.
  6. Place under the grill until heated and the pita starts to brown, about 5 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!

Love simple and tasty recipes and yours fit the bill!! :) Used whole-wheat tortilla instead of pita. This is perfect for a light lunch! Thanks CulinaryQueen! :)

I love this! I made this twice - once with ricotta and once with cottage cheese. I prefer cottage cheese on mine, just as a personal preference. I also used a whole wheat pita. I used fresh basil and dried oregano (fresh would definitely have been better). I also cut down on the olive oil and didn't have a problem. I just barely drizzled some oil on my tomatoes and all the spices still stuck to the tomatoes. This was so quick and easy for a weeknight meal, this is definitely going to become a great standby recipe for me! Thanks CulinaryQueen!
