I’ve been making pita pizzas since high school and I can’t believe I haven’t shared the recipe on here yet. I think the idea came from weight watchers but I have since changed the ingredients and measurements so many times that I could not even tell you what the original recipe looked like.
A pita pizza is exactly what it sounds like: a pizza on pita bread. This is my go-to meal. Whenever I need a quick dinner or snack this is what I cook up. It also works great as an appetizer for parties. Just cut it up into small triangles and you have a great party snack.
The thing I like about pita pizzas is that they are so versatile. You can use tomatoes, sauce, BBQ sauce, pesto, alfredo sauce, etc. For my classic pita pizza I like to use tomatoes. It feels more luxurious… I don’t know why. I’m looking forward to sharing some crazier pita pizzas with you all (mac and cheese pizza anyone?), but for now enjoy the classic!
Classic Pita Pizza
- 1 pita bread I used gluten free pita
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/8 tsp dried basil
- 5-6 slices tomato Roma is my favorite
- 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella cubed
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place pita bread on a baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, combine olive oil and spices.
- With a pastry brush spread oil mixture onto the pita bread.
- Arrange tomato slices onto the pita so that they cover all parts of it.
- Add mozzarella cubes to the pita, spacing them out equally.
- Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges of the pita bread are brown and the cheese is bubbling.
- Cool for 2 minutes before cutting with a large knife or pizza cutter.
- Serves 1-2 people.
