Pita Bread Pizza Recipe
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.
Using Pita Bread As Pizza Crust
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 pita bread rounds I used in the photo above were medium-sized: two or three would be appropriate per person.
The pita bread I used in the photo below were standard-sized. Plan for one per person.
Getting The Crust Just Right
When you’re using pita bread as a pizza crust, the crust will only be as good as the pita bread.
If you prefer a crispier crust, I recommend heating the pita bread up in the oven directly on the grate as you preheat the oven. This starts the toasting process. After a few minutes in the oven, the bread will begin to toast. Then you add the toppings and continue until the pizza is perfectly cooked.
