Make It Your Own!
Pita pizza’s are a quick and easy way to make a pizza just the way you like it. Not only does it take little time to make (with a bit of preparation), but for the cost of pizza these day, who can blame you for wanting to make your own! Many kids with different tastes in your family? Have them make their own pita pizza with toppings they actually like!
1. Pita Bread
First off, you’ll need to buy pita. This will act as the pizza dough. There are different types of pita bread, so choose according to your preferences and/or diet:
- whole grain
I suggest buying the large pita breads for sharing and the small ones for individual portions.
2. Pizza sauce
Pick out your favorite kind of pizza sauce (if you know how to make your own it’s even better!). Make sure to get enough, as always, it’s better to have more than not enough.
Here’s the fun part! Make a list of what everyone would like to have on their pizza before going to the grocery store. There might be a lot off different things you need :
- Cheese (mozzarella, cheddar, etc)
The list can go on and on depending on what kind of pizza you want! Not only can you make a standard pizza, but maybe also something a little different. Instead of pizza sauce, try putting some pesto on your pita and top it off with
- Feta cheese
Really make your pita pizza your own!
Here’s the part that might take a bit of time, depending on how many toppings you have and how fast you are at chopping up vegetables (if that’s one of your toppings). I’ll use an example from the type of pita pizzas we make at home.
What we do is we take our pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, onions, cheese, and spinach and chop it up into small pieces (the cheese we grate ourselves). Once we’re done with that, we put it into tupperware and back into the fridge, that way everything is ready for when you want to make your pita pizzas!
You can avoid the time that it takes to do that by buying chopped veggies or already grated cheese if you’d like. It certainly would save some time, but might cost a little more.
5. Making your Pita Pizza
When it comes time for dinner, take out all your ingredients. Have everyone grab a pita and start mixing and matching your toppings! Be sure to spread your pizza sauce first and then have fun with the rest.
Cook at 325°F in the oven for around 10 minutes (or until cheese is melted and the edges of the pita look crispy) and serve! (Pita Pizza Tip: Before you’re about to take the Pita Pizza out of the oven, turn the oven to broil. Keep an eye on it because it will cook quickly! I like it a little bit crispier).
Pita pizza’s are perfect for parties! Just cut them into pieces (slices or squares) and serve! Trust me, they’ll sell like hot cakes! A little preparation and creativity is all you need for this quick and easy meal.
See you tomorrow morning,
