Pesto Pita Bruschetta - 2 Ways

Pesto Pita Bruschetta - 2 Ways created by Boomette

This is an healthier alternative to bruschetta using pita bread instead of a baguette or french stick. You can either use mayonnaise or cheese spread to mix with the pesto & either tomato slices or diced tomatoes. I use a soft cheese spread, the ones that are sold in triangles, they are really creamy & mix really well with the pesto.

  • Combine the pesto & mayonnaise or pesto & cream cheese. ( I do this on the pita to save on dishes).
  • Place or sprinkle tomatoes on top and then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Place under you griller or broiler and cook until pitas are slightly crisp & cheese is melted.

    We really enjoyed this for a light dinner. It's a great use for in season tomatoes. I used about a half of a fresh tomato. I took your suggestion and used a wedge of laughing cow cheese. My pita was a little bit soggy. Might have been because it wasn't completely thawed. Might try to toast it a bit first before adding toppings. Thanks for sharing.

    I used mayonnaise and it gave a very good taste mixed with the pesto. I sliced my tomato but another time I'll dice it. Instead of parmesan, I used grated mozzarella cheese. Thanks Mandy. It was yummy. Made for the Babes of ZWT4
