Mushroom-Leek Pizza


Pitas can be more than just pockets! Let the flatbread shine with this quick and unconventional meatless recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 1 sliced leek

  • 1 sliced garlic clove

  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms (5 ounces)

  • Coarse salt

  • 2 pitas

  • 4 tablespoons ricotta

  • Red-pepper flakes


  1. Set oven to 425 degrees. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add leek and garlic and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high, add mushrooms, and cook about 2 minutes more. Season with salt. Place pitas on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread each with 2 tablespoons ricotta, drizzle with olive oil, and top with vegetables. Bake until the pita is golden and cheese begins to melt, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with red-pepper flakes.
