Pepper Jack and Double Olive Pita Pizza

Pepperjack Double Olive Pita PizzaWhen I came across this recipe to test, I didn’t have high expectations.  A pizza that was heavily topped with olives?  Hmmmm…it didn’t sound all that amusing.  But, was I proven wrong!  Surprisingly, the combination of the pepper jack cheese, two different kinds of olives, and a sprinkling of diced bell peppers really works into one great olive pizza!

The original recipe calls for a thin crust pizza dough, but I couldn’t steer my mind away from making individual sized pizzas over some homemade pita bread.  Plus, what a great use of the pita bread that was starting to get a little too old in my freezer!  You can definitely use store-bought pita bread, too.  These little pizzas are thrown together within minutes and appear on your table-top in no time!
