  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the pita breads on a baking tray. Mix together the tomato paste, olive oil and oregano, season with freshly ground black pepper, then thinly spread over the pitas.
  2. Arrange half the strips of ham on top, then scatter with a mixture of pineapple pieces (if these are large, chop them into smaller pieces first) and corn. Top with the remaining ham strips, then sprinkle with mozzarella.
  3. Bake the pizzettes for about 15 minutes until the cheese has melted and is beginning to brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

Variations: For tuna pizzettes, spread the pitas with 1⁄4 cup red or green pesto instead of the tomato paste mixture. Drain a 170 gram can of tuna in water and use instead of the ham. Top each pizzette with a few halved, pitted black olives before serving.

To make onion, blue cheese and walnut pizzettes, gently cook 2 thinly sliced red onions in 1 tablespoon olive oil for 7-8 minutes until softened. Mix with 1⁄4 cup tomato paste, a pinch of dried mixed herbs and a pinch of pepper. Spoon over the pitas. Scatter with 150 grams chopped gorgonzola cheese. Bake for 8 minutes, then sprinkle with 1⁄3 cup chopped walnuts and bake for 3-4 minutes until the nuts are toasted.
