Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 Italian frying pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound shaved or very thinly sliced beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 whole-wheat pocketless pitas or prebaked individual-size pizza crusts
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend, or a mix of shredded mozzarella, provolone and parmesan
  • 1/2 cup pickled sliced sweet or hot cherry peppers
Directions

Preheat the broiler. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and frying pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beef begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the parsley, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring, 1 more minute.

Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with foil. Place the pitas on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese. Top evenly with the beef mixture and the remaining 1 cup cheese.

Broil the pizzas until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Top with the cherry peppers and cut each pizza into quarters.
