Ingredients

  • 2 pita rounds
  • 2 tbsp basil pesto
  • 8 slices mozzarella cheese I used the mozzarella balls
  • 1 large ripe tomato sliced
  • 1 avocado sliced lengthwise into wedges
  • extra virgin olive oil for the grill pan

Instructions

  • Cut each pita round in half to make 4 pockets.  Open each pocket and spread the pesto on both sides.  Layer one slice of mozzarella inside each of the 4 pita pockets, top with slices of tomato and avocado, and end with another slice of mozzarella.  Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and add just enough olive oil to slick the surface.  Place the pita pockets in the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cheese is melted.  
  • *Flexitarian tip: Add slices of crisp bacon to the pitas before grilling.
