Expert Tips

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.

Tomato and Mozzarella Pitas are as easy as serving this fragrant mixture in pita bread halves.
