Pear gorgonzola pita pizza


Back to school season. And my tot started his school! I can't believe how big he got and he's already going to school(even though it's just 2's). Until the day of, I didn't think it's a big deal as it's only a couple of hours and twice a week. He walked in so confidently, offered me a hug and a kiss. Then said, "See you later, mommy." and just walked away! I came right out of the classroom as I wanted to keep things smooth. But I could not leave. I stayed around like other first time preschool moms did, and saw one kid crying hysterically. I suddenly got so emotional and couldn't help but crying! Anyway, I thought I could do so much while he's at school but time went by so quickly, it was already time to pick him up, which means it's almost lunch time!

On the short ride home, he told me all about school, who took him to the potty, what song he sang, what he ate for snack, etc. teachers offered him water with animal crackers and he asked if he could have sparkling water. WHAT?! Oh boy..this kid..Well, he now knows that still water or milk are the only options at school.

Anyway, for my pizza loving boy, I quickly whipped up a "pizza" with one of my most used appliances in the kitchen, toaster oven. Of course I did not have time to make the dough nor did I have the dough in the fridge. Prep is so quick that I could finish and put it in the oven while my tot was still chatting away. If you like thin crust, this is a great option for crunchiness and it's healthier than real pizza dough. And you can also make individual pizza with the pita. I guess first day at school made him extra tired, soon after we ate, he started to yawn and went right up to take a nap. =) 

Pear gorgonzola pita pizza

3 Tbsp gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

1. Cook the bacon until crispy and chop them into small pieces. - I microwaved them for 6 minutes between paper towels on a plate to make it quick and easy but feel free to use the method you like.

2. Toast or broil the pita for 4 minutes.

3. Smear goat cheese on two toasted pita bread. Place pear slices, bacon and gorgonzola on top.
