Pita Bread Pizza Recipe

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 ones in the photo above were medium-sized: two or three would be appropriate per person.

I recently made this bruschetta-style pita pizza using pita bread that I bought at Whole Foods.

    Using pita bread as instant pizza crust is one of my favorite tricks! Have you ever tried using naan as crust? That’s possibly even better. 🙂

      I haven’t tried naan bread, but that sounds amazing! Thanks for the tip.
