Notes

  • If you can’t find pita breads, you can also use flat bread or Indian naan bread.
  • If you prefer crispy crust, pull each pita bread apart into two thin halves.
  • For healthy eating, consider using whole wheat pita bread, low-fat cheese and low sodium sauce.
  • Use a thin layer of sauce to avoid making the pitas soggy.
  • For a spicy option, sprinkle red pepper flakes on before the cheese.
