Simple & Tasty Pita Pizza

I don't know anyone who doesn't love pizza, but who wants to spend hours making dough or wasting all their calories for the week on a single meal?

Solution: pita pizzas! I came up with this recipe when we had my 8 year old cousin over for dinner. It was perfect for a quick meal and he loved making his own pizza.

Add or subtract whatever you'd like, but these are some of the things we used.
• sliced red onion
• sliced tomato
• chopped spinach
• turkey pepperoni slices
• ground sausage (cooked quickly in a pan)
• shredded mozzarella cheese
• feta cheese
• pizza sauce
• oregano
• pita bread

Preheat oven to 350.

Spread pita bread on cookie sheets.

Add pizza sauce, veggies, meat, and top with cheese and a shake of oregano.

Cook for about 10 minutes or until golden brown on top.

This was Hubby's red onion, sausage, and pepperoni pizza.

This was my red onion, tomato, sausage, and feta pizza.

  3. Hi Lisa
    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment & the kindness that you show..Nice to know ya girlfriend.
    Awesome looking pizza..I bet it tastes wonderful!

  4. Pizza is my fav! I used to make pizza on sliced toast lol. If you decide to make your own dough you can actually store it in the freezer for those crazy busy week nights.

    The best recipe I've used so far is this one, I posted about it on my blog.

  5. Sounds delicious. Pitas as a crust saves so much time!

  6. GREAT idea! I don't mind making pizza dough, but I haven't found a recipe that I am just in love with, so why bother, ya know? This sounds much easier! I'll give it a try!

  7. OK... now I want pizza! This looks wonderful.

  8. Looks Delish! So quick and easy and yet soooo tasty.

  9. What a brilliant idea - and easy too - always good in my book!

    I cooked a long complicated thing last night. It was delicious but took sooooo much time. This looks as though it'd be pretty quick. Just what I need!


  10. I love pita pizzas. They are great when you're serving kids because everybody can have whatever toppings they want. Found you @ Momnivore's Dilemma

  11. Great idea, and these look too good for words. I featured you today on my favorite things :)

  12. I love these! We usually do pesto base, chicken, red onion, feta, and mozzarella. Makes my mouth water!!!

  13. What a great idea for a quick pizza. My family and I used to use really thick crackers when I was younger but this sounds like an idea solution for when you want a chewy crust.

  14. Love it. A new follower from Thrifty Thursday bloghop. Hope to see you in my place.

  15. Yum! One of my favorite restaurants serves a pita pizza. It's delicious :)

  16. Hey Lisa, thanks for commenting on my veggie burger recipe! Your pizzas look great, you inspired me to make some tonight. I always end up putting really random ingredients on mine (to clear out the pantry/freezer!) like green beans, caramelized red onions, black beans, edamame, zucchini...not your typical pizza toppings!

  17. looks great,I'll definitely be making pizza soon!

  18. Yum! These look so good. Now I'm hungry :)

  19. Now...why didn't I think of this! We make pizza out of everything else around here. YUM! Thanks for linking up to Tip Day Thursday.

  21. This looks so good! I love making pita pizzas with my kids, but this looks like a "grown-up" version! Can't wait to try it!

  22. Looks delicious...

    I will adapt it to GFCF!

    Thanks for linking to Creative Juice last week...hope to see you back this week!


  23. Oh I love pita pizzas! My favorite is Alfredo sauce, mozzarella, artichoke, chicken, and black olives! You should try it!

  24. Sounds yummy and I like that it's lower carb than using a premade shell or dough.


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a note!
