One evening, she had to come up with a quick dinner for friends and the pita pizza was born! This is a fun way to make pizza during a busy weeknight or any time of the year. You may use a simple homemade sauce or store bought sauce in a jar.
For a healthier twist, try using whole wheat or whole grain pita flat breads. And for Gluten Free Pizza ! – Try the Schar’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust ( look for the yellow and green box in the pasta section)

Liz’s Pita Pizza Recipe: calls for 2 Pizza’s:
- 2 Pita Flat breads – ( I used Kontos, 7 inch Pita Flat breads)
- 1/2 pound Fresh Mozzarella – sliced
- 6 to 8 leaves of fresh basil
- 4 Tbsp. of Mom’s Marinara Sauce
- 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
- salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Place 2 Pita flat breads onto baking sheet.
Add 2 heaping tablespoons of marinara sauce and spread onto each bread.
Sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese on top.
Add 2 to 3 slices of mozzarella.
Top with 4 leaves of fresh basil.
Sprinkle some salt, pepper and garlic powder on top.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until the mozzarella cheese has melted. Enjoy!
If you want a real brick oven taste, try placing the pizza’s on a grill with cover lid closed, and grill the pizza’s until the cheese is melted. Having the grill covered gives the pizza’s a smokey taste.
Serves 2 to 4
