Easy Healthy Pita Pizzas

   By w2005blc  Jan 10, 2012

I am a big fan of pizza.  I could probably eat pizza every single day and at every meal.  My kids could too.  I am always looking for great ways to make recipes healthier and still have them taste good.  The recipe I'm going to share with you is one of the tastier ways we prepare pizza at home without having to compromise on taste.  We used to make english muffin pizzas when I was a kid, but I really like the pita crust pizza better.  It seems more like real pizza crust to me.  I personally like to load mine up with lots of veggies.  I love toping it with olives, bell pepper and mushrooms.  My kids prefer just cheese or pepperoni.  What would you top yours with?


$PullQuote$Ingredients to make a Pita Pizza

pita bread (I usually try and find whole wheat)

shredded cheese

marinara sauce or pizza sauce

toppings - veggies, pepperoni, sausage, ham, or whatever you want


Heat your oven to 400 degrees and place the pita bread in the oven on a cookie sheet.  Cook for about 5 minutes until a little bit crispy.  Take the pita bread out of the oven.  Leave it on the cookie sheet.  Spread on your sauce, top with cheese and other toppings.  Bake in the 400 degree oven for about 8 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Allow this to cool for a minute and then slice and serve.

This is a great for a quick lunch or dinner.  My kids really enjoy being able to make their own pizza and it's a little bit healtheir this way too!  What do you do to make your favorite foods healtheir?

looks good and I have tried them before too! I use the Flat Out wraps for them so good.
