Pita Pizzas

These are so simple and quick, you just won’t believe it!

1 package whole grain pitas                                                          blog pizza 5

1/2 cup marinara sauce

12 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese

And whatever toppings you love!

Some of our favorites are:

Ham and pineapple, Turkey pepperoni and mushroom, fresh tomato, Kalamata olive and feta, leftover chicken breast with pesto, etc.

Okay, let’s get started!

1.) Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. If you are only cooking for one or two you can use a toaster oven to save energy.

2.) To make clean up a snap, I like to put parchment paper underneath the pitas on a large cookie sheet, but you may want to just  use non-stick cooking spray.

3.) Arrange the pitas to fit on the cookie sheet and lightly spread them with marinara. (I have used leftover spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce with fresh basil, diced tomatoes, roasted red pepper spread…)

4.) Spread a thin layer of mozzarella cheese all the way to the edges, then top with your favorite toppings. The kids love to do this and eat a lot more when they can make their own. Try to slice veggies very thin if raw or use leftover grilled, steamed or roasted veggies.

5.) I love to drizzle a little garlic infused olive oil on mine, or finish with a little Parmesan cheese.

6.) Bake in 450 oven on the middle rack for 10 minute (crispy crust), then turn to broil for 2 minutes.

7.) Allow the pizza to set for just a couple minutes to cool. I moved them to a cutting board or plate before cutting them with the pizza cutter or butcher knife.

    • Leah, that’s great! There are lots of whole grain lavash breads available now. What kind do you use? I also like sprouted tortillas, but the kids prefer the thicker crust of the pita. Thank you for reading and commenting!!
