Ingredients

For the Margarita Pizza:

  • 2 whole wheat pita bread rounds
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 3 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 fresh basil leaves, for garnish

For the Greek Pizza:

  • 2 whole wheat pita bread rounds
  • 1/3 cup plain hummus
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. sliced black olives
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

For the Pesto Chicken Pizza:

  • 2 whole wheat pita bread rounds
  • 1/3 cup basil pesto
  • 2/3 cup cooked shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • fresh ground pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Lay pita bread rounds in a single layer on a large baking sheet. They won’t rise or expand, so you can place them quite close together on the baking sheet if you need to.
  3. Choose your pizza! You can make all three of the combinations above, or just choose one or two, or add your own favorite pizza toppings! This is kind of a no-recipe recipe, so there aren’t too many instructions.
  4. Top each pita bread round with your desired toppings. If you’re making the margarita pita bread pizza, leave the basil leaves off until AFTER the pizza is baked, and then add them at the last minute so they don’t wilt!
  5. Bake pita bread pizzas at 375 degrees F for 10-15 minutes until pita bread has lightly crisped, toppings are heated through, and cheese has just melted.
  6. Slice pitas into quarters and serve immediately.
