Why you should make pita pizza ASAP

If you need a quick dinner recipe that takes very little time to prep and only 10 minutes to cook—look no further! Pita bread pizza is your answer. The pita bread acts as the crust and is the perfect size for personal pizzas. They are really easy to customize with whatever ingredients you have on hand making them perfect for an easy weeknight dinner.

Pita pizzas are also family-friendly and a fun way to get kids involved by having them pick out their own toppings. It’s also great for leftovers and makes an easy workday lunch. Best of all, this tasty comfort food is ready faster than delivery pizza!

Today we made both a traditional veggie pizza made vegan with marinara sauce and a couple Mediterranean inspired pizzas using hummus as the base. Pita bread makes a great neutral base for any flavor profile!

You’re going to love these mini pizzas! They’re:

  • Perfect for pizza night
  • Easy to customize with different toppings and a great way to get kids involved at meal time
  • Fast—you’re only 10-15 minutes away from a delicious quick lunch or dinner!
  • One of the easiest recipes there is!

Where to buy pita bread?

We get our whole wheat pita bread at Walmart but check your local grocery store. We prefer whole wheat pitas when possible but any whole grain pita bread will do. You can even use naan bread or any flatbread you prefer!

Sauce ideas

In this easy pita pizza recipe you’ll find we used a couple different sauces but here are some additional ideas:

Topping ideas

You really can’t go wrong with any topping! Feel free to customize with your own favorite toppings to make these personal pita pizzas your own! Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Red onions
  • Bell peppers
  • Minced garlic
  • Tomatoes
  • Fresh spinach
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Black olives
  • Pineapple
  • Mushrooms
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Nutritional yeast
  • Dairy-free mozzarella cheese

For a healthy pizza option, we leave off the cheese. If you’ve never tried a pizza without cheese, give it a go. With enough sauce and toppings it’s hardly noticeable. But if you really want cheese, any store-bought dairy free cheese will do or make your own! Here’s a vegan ricotta or vegan mozzarella that would go great on it!

Depending on the flavor profile you’re going for, cheese might not even be appropriate. We made some pita pizzas with hummus for a more Mediterranean style pizza that wouldn’t work well with traditional cheese pizzas.
