I almost forgot to go to Farmer’s Market this weekend. At the last minute, I remembered I had no veggies in my fridge, and if it wasn’t the market, it was a trip to the grocery store instead. I chose the market. I arrived with only a few minutes to spare, in fact some of the vendors were already breaking down their booths. So I embarked on what surely was the quickest, most efficient farmers marketing I have ever done, rushing through and grabbing a few goodies here and there without giving it too much thought. It was actually a lot of fun, and I ended up with an armful of random items that somehow go really well together. Plus I scored a gorgeous flower bouquet, greatly discounted. I’d like to think it was because I was looking especially fetching that day, but truth is, he probably just wanted to go home. Maybe both. 🙂
So for dinner, obviously I couldn’t wait to dip into my treasure trove of goodies. I had a couple things left from my last trip to the market that needed to get used up – some pita bread and Italian salami. Combined with some of fresh goat cheese and freaking amazing tomatoes from this trip, plus some basil from my garden, I had myself a pizza to die for.
Farmer’s Market Pita Pizza
1 greek pita or flatbread
1 small to medium size tomato, sliced
Drizzle the pita with a tiny bit of olive oil. Arrange tomatoes over the top to cover the surface. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Scatter salami and basil over the top and dot with blobs of goat cheese. Add another little drizzle of olive oil.
Broil for 5 minutes or so until the cheese is melty and the crust is browned around the edges. Cut into wedges and eat!
