Mediterranean Pizza


Food 2013 068

I needed a quick meal that would travel well for our usual Tuesday and Thursday drive to dance classes, a one hour drive each way.  I had nothing planned and time was running out to get a meal ready that could be eaten in the car.  I pick my son up from the bus stop and we immediately leave town twice a week so I need to have quick, easy to prepare and not too messy meals to eat in the car.

I only had a few items in my fridge as we were trying to empty our cupboards and freezer this month in anticipation of restocking over the summer.  I took what I had in my fridge and created my version of a “Mediterranean Pizza.”

Ingredients:

  • One pre made pizza crust
  • 1/2 container of Philadelphia Cooking Creme – Savory Garlic (10 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup of feta cheese
  • handful of basil cut into small strips
  • Sun-dried tomato strips packed in oil

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spread approximately 1/2 of the creme from a container of Cooking Creme over the pizza crust.
  3. Evenly distribute basil across the top of the pizza.
  4. Place slice of sun-dried tomatoes on the pizza.  I only used a few as my family tends not to like them as much but put as many on as your family would like.
  5. Sprinkle the feta cheese over the top of the pizza.
  6. Bake the pizza at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Crust will crisp up and feta will start to melt some.

I served this with a green salad on the side and we had a lovely meal that my kids could easily eat in the car.  No drive-thrus or take out needed.
