Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The fresh mozzarella cheese called for in this recipe is a soft white cheese with a mild, delicate flavor. It has a different flavor than regular mozzarella and can be found in Italian markets, cheese shops and some supermarkets.
  • tip 2
    Tomato and Mozzarella Pitas are as easy as serving this fragrant mixture in pita bread halves.
