HOW TO MAKE PITA PIZZA

There are 4 main ingredients for pita pizza:

  1. Pita bread: White or whole wheat pita pockets, 7-9 inches (17-22 cm) in diameter
  2. Sauce: Tomato sauce, pizza sauce or pesto sauce (optional)
  3. Toppings: Spinach, fresh basil, pitted olives
  4. Cheese: Shredded mozzarella or cheddar

Pita Pizza toppings: spinach, tomatoes and olives being mixed together with an herbed sauce made with oregano, basil, garlic, olive oil

Remember these are individual pizzas, so each one can be made differently which is great when people like different toppings. This recipe has a Greek theme using spinach, tomatoes and olives. However, you can easily substitute ingredients based on what you have on-hand.

The only equipment you’ll need is a baking sheet. Place the pita breads on a baking sheet, brush with olive oil, add the toppings and finish with the cheeses. Bake either in a regular oven at 375oF (191oC) or toaster oven at 400oF (204oC) until the cheese is bubbly and golden.
