Pita Pizza

I remembered another favorite. If I have whole wheat pita on hand or you could use regular pita bread.

Split apart the pita , toast it under a broiler or toaster oven, after it is toasted , add your favorite jar of sauce to cover both halves of the pita.
Add your favorite cheese and whatever seasonings you like. Put back under the broiler til cheese is melted.

Thanks for the reminder. I used to do this when I was in University. Haven't made pita pitas in a while!

I love making thin crust pizzas with josephs flax seed pitas. They're the perfect size for personal size pizzas.

Can't fathom whole wheat pitas but a regular one sounds great. I may have to do this tonight.

Question though, because I'm a little dense, when you say split the pita, do you mean cut it in half or pull it apart so you have two completely round halfs of the pita? If that, what side do you toast and put the sauce on? The rough middle side?

Whole wheat pita is great! Nothing wrong with "white bread" if that is what you prefer.

I have always split the pita into two discs - split between sides, otherwise you would wind up with pita "pockets" for a sandwich, not a round pizza base. I always put them "inside up" - but I guess you could do it the other way if you wanted to.

Never tried it with pita bread. We have used tortillas before, and growing up we always used English Muffins. Oh and bagels, we have used bagels as well.

Thanks. After last night's dinner disaster (see the TJ's thread), I owe DD something good for dinner. Pita Pizza might just be the trick to appease her.

You can use all kinds of "breads" for your pizza base. English muffins, bagels, a split loaf of French bread, Kaiser rolls, hot bog buns, hamburger buns, onion rolls ... etc.

I don't think kids are too picky - all they care about is that it has some sauce, cheese, and you call it pizza - LOL

(sounds like some adults I know, too ....)
