  • 4 pita bread rounds (regular or whole wheat; medium size)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • Toppings such as pepperoni, diced olives, cooked and minced broccoli, or any other desired toppings.


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat.
  • Place the pita bread onto the prepared pan. Top with pizza sauce, using about ¼ cup on each. Spread it to the edges.
  • Top with cheeses, using about ½ cup shredded cheese on each and any desired toppings.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for a minute or two before cutting and serving. 


  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave or toaster oven until warmed through.
  • Cut up for younger kids and serve with a simple side of fruit for an easy meal. 
  • Add fully cooked ground meat or sausage or partially cooked bell pepper or broccoli. Or add pepperoni, thinly sliced mushrooms, olives, or spinach directly on top of the sauce and cook as directed.
  • Dairy-free: Use a favorite dairy-free cheese.
  • Gluten-free: Use a gluten-free pita bread.
  • Adults may enjoy their pita pizza recipe topped with crushed red pepper flakes and/or shredded fresh basil.
  • Vary the flavors by subbing barbecue sauce for the pizza sauce and cheddar cheese for the mozzarella, or trying a Greek pita pizza with feta cheese and halved cherry tomatoes.
  • Trade in naan bread for an equally easy option.
