HOW TO MAKE PITA PIZZA
There are 4 main ingredients for pita pizza:
- Pita bread: White or whole wheat pita pockets, 7-9 inches (17-22 cm) in diameter
- Sauce: Tomato sauce, pizza sauce or pesto sauce (optional)
- Toppings: Spinach, fresh basil, pitted olives
- Cheese: Shredded mozzarella or cheddar
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.
