How do you like the idea of a 3Β  minute pizza? kinda crazy right! but it’s true. This pizza recipe has been in the family for years. Originally, my mom would use the big homemade pitas for the crust, but When I got married I didn’t have the big homemade pitas. I started using the store bought pitas instead and they were worked perfectly!

Years ago it was very hard to find pita bread in a supermarket, I had to get them at the Middle-Eastern grocery stores but now you can find them in just about any local supermarket. I usually buy a few packs and store them in the freezer; they can last for months in there.

Ingredients

  • 2 pita breads
  • 1/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella or Italian blend cheese

Instructions

  1. If making the pizza in the oven, preheat oven by turning on the broiler and adjust the rack to the middle. If in the toaster oven turn on the toaster to "toast".
  2. Place two pitas on a metal pan. Spread half the marinara mixture ( about 2 tablespoons) on one pita and the rest on the other. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over both pitas leaving about 1/2 inch for the crust.
  3. Place pitas in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Check on them every minute to make sure they don't burn.
  4. Remove from oven and enjoy!

    I’ve just tried pita pizza from a local pizza place, tonight. Was ASTONISHED by not just how good it was, but how “filling” it was. Think it has become my favorite, quick dinner and your website has given me the courage to try it at home. Your pizza looks delicious and not so very different from what I ordered tonight. πŸ™‚ God bless.

      Glad you found the recipe helpful, Marie. It sure is good for a fraction of the price!

    Jessica

    Great recipe! I was wondering if you have ever tried freezing these and reheating them? I’d love to pack these for my girl’s school lunches but I’m worried the texture wouldn’t be right. What do you think?

      Layla

      I’ve never tried freezing them but I always freeze my pitas and then reheat them in the toaster oven or microwave. I think they would be so much better fresh though and they don’t really take that long to make! πŸ™‚

    Such a great idea! I also love using tortilla to make a really crispy and thin base, just like an Italian Romano base. This would make a great, quick mid-week meal! πŸ™‚

      Layla

      I can imagine how nice and thin the pizza would be with a tortilla crust!

    Chris @ Shared Appetite

    Such a smart, quick weeknight dinner idea! And so easy to build all different sorts of flavor combos using pita as your base!

    Natalie @ Tastes Lovely

    I love pita pizzas! They’re so much faster to throw together than making your own dough and rolling it out and such. I’ve also used naan bread before too, which is great if you like a crust that is a tad bit thicker. Hurray for super fast dinners!

      Layla

      I’ve never used Naan bread, sounds like a great Idea! Thanks, Natalie! πŸ˜€

    Layla

    Thank you Kayle!
