I. Love. Pizza.
I could probably eat it every day.
But I never buy frozen pizza. Why? Because I have found several alternative options that are fresher, tastier, healthier, and often cheaper than frozen grocery store pizza. Pita bread pizza is one of those options.
There are typically many different kinds and brands of pita bread in the grocery store. It’s a cheap food item that can be used in many different ways, from making sandwiches to homemade pita chips. While large pita rounds are the most common, you can also find small pita rounds which are great for mini appetizer pizzas. The ones in the photo above were medium-sized: two or three would be appropriate per person.
If you feel like you need more pizza in your life (who doesn’t?) and are open to alternative crust options, try this recipe or check out these posts:

Pita Bread Pizza Recipe
If you prefer a crisp pizza crust, heat the pita bread in the oven for a few minutes before adding toppings.
The pizzas in the photo above are topped with tomato sauce, green and yellow pepper, jalapeño chicken sausage, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
Preheat oven to 400F. Toast pita bread in the oven for a few minutes, if desired. Top each pita round with a small amount of sauce, toppings, and cheese. Place on a large baking sheet. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes if using large pita rounds. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes if using small pita rounds.
