Garlic Prawn Bocconcini Cheese Pizza

Sometimes, I wonder if pizzas are like open faced sandwiches. Cheesy ingredients toasted under heat resulting in melted goodness on crisp dough. I wonder if anyone ever top another piece of dough on top of it and eat it like a sandwich? Ahh.. imagination + random thoughts!

Having some prawns and bocconcini cheese on hand, I thought it could be interesting to put a different type of cheese rather than the traditional mozzarella and cheddar combination. Later, I found out that bocconcini cheese is a type of mozzarella-rather, it's also called little morsels which suit the tiny looking cheese.

Hubby says he prefers using bocconcini than the usual cheese. He commented that it tasted lighter. Perhaps this cheese has more use than bruschetta.

Garlic Prawn Bocconcini Cheese Pizza
3 pita bread
2 tsp of garlic
1 to 2 cup of shelled prawns
1 cup of sliced mushrooms
3 tablespoon of tomato paste
around 200 grams of bocconcini cheese

Preheat oven 200 C. Line 2 baking tray with baking paper. Place both pita bread on the tray. Spread a tablespoon of paste on each bread. Sprinkle garlic, mushrooms and prawns on it. Bake for around 10-15 mins.

I did not use pizza dough as sandwiches before but I have used pizza toppings as fillings for my sandwich! Does that count? ;p

"Little Morsels" - I like that name for the cheese, and maybe the pizza too! :)
