Liz’s Pita Pizza! This is a simple twist on pizza! It is made using a pita flat bread instead of pizza dough, and it’s topped with marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil. Baked in 10 minutes and ready to serve! This is one of Liz’s culinary creations!
She has a talent for creating healthy, easy and delicious dishes with simple ingredients, like our Mom.
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 like our mom’s quick marinara sauce, or store bought sauce from 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)
