Pesto Pita Pizza

The other night for dinner I was in the mood for pizza but as it was late I didn’t have time to make dough and I couldn’t be bothered to run out to get some so pita bread became our crust.  It worked out great, we all decided what we wanted on our pizza and within a short time we were enjoying our meal.

IMG_9622eEammon’s first pizza was similar to mine with pesto, fresh tomatoes and fresh mozzarella but it also had mini pepperoni slices

IMG_9625eOkay so they didn’t all have pesto.  This was Eammon’s second pita pizza topped with tomato sauce, fresh sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, mini pepperoni slices and bacon bits.

Pita pizzas are oh-so easy to make, you can use ingredients that you have in the house and you can add as much or as little as you’d like and tailor each pizza to the diner’s taste. 

Top your pita with sauce of your choice, add as many or as few toppings along with some cheese if you choose and then on a baking sheet, place into a pre-heated 400F oven.  Bake until the pita is crispy around the edge and the toppings are bubbly hot. 

The only prepare ahead thing to note is that if you use meats they need to be precooked and if you want your veggies to be quite soft, they too need to be cooked ahead.

Make, create and enjoy!


  1. Mmm, they look so delish!

    I have to ask about the fresh mozz, though. Twice now I've been disappointed when I use it. It just seems so bland and tasteless to me. You don't find that to be the case?

  2. I love these type of easy pizzas. I always have pitta bread in the freezer so I often have these for lunch at weekends if i'm home.

  3. This looks wonderful. I love pizza and yours sounds so refreshing and delicious! You've got me craving for one now....and I just had dinner less than 2 hrs ago, go figure! :P

  4. ALl the pizza versions look delicious! I'm thinking pizza for dinner tonight:-)
