Pizza with pita bread, chicken mince and cheese

January 20, 2011

Friday night, tired to death from work and the heavy load of a full week but with a chill out mood because of a forthcoming weekend, hungry but without homemade food, just with a defrosted chicken mince…

All we want is nothing more than our pyjamas, slippers, pizza, beer and our soft, comfortable sofa.

 I keep hearing a voice in my head “Order food, order food, order food!!” but no!! I will not give in!! I run to the fridge, take out a pack of pita bread, put the chicken mince on fire until the oven is hot and in a few minutes we enjoy ourselves delicious home made pizzas in the bolsters of our coach!


  • 8 medium size pita breads
  • 500 gr chicken mince
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2-3 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 100 ml dry white wine
  • 1 plate for soup various ground cheese –whatever leftovers you have in your fridge. I used gouda, parmesan, cheddar, smoked cheese.
  • ½-1 tsp smoked paprika –or non smoked, or carry if you like
  • Mustard
  • Salt, pepper
  • Olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven at grill at 428ο F. Heat olive oil in a small pan and brown vegetables (onion, garlic, carrot) for 1’, after cutting them in small pieces with a multi.
  2. Add chicken mince and with a wooden spoon keep stirring it and making it small pieces as well.
  3. Add paprika, salt, pepper and then wine. Let it boil away for 1-2’, put the lid on and let it boil until there is no liquid left. Add parsley, mix it well and switch off the heat.
  4. Put the pitas on a pan covered with baking paper, spread a tsp of mustard over each one, lay the mince and cover with lots of cheese.
  5. Grill for 2-3’ until the cheese melts.

 Drink beer. Take a nap at the coach.

    Necessity is the mother of invention, isn’t it? I also like improvising little somethings with what I have handy, and it doesn’t take much for good taste. I used to have pitta breads or, even better, arabic bread in the fridge – it’s a good foundation for a lot of different recipes.

      I absolutely agree with you!
      To cook with whatever you may find handy is not only creative but also important to food, home and global economy -considering the hunger that many people deal with all over the world.
