Pita Pizza Variations

Salad Pizza

  1. Brush the pita bread with olive oil and crushed garlic.
  2. Then, sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and then add a couple of slices of tomatoes.
  3. Bake for 15- 20 minutes in a 375-degree oven.
  4. While it’s baking, take 1 1/2 cups of chopped romaine and mix it with 2 tablespoons of Caesar dressing and 2 teaspoons of grated parmesan. You can also use 1-cup or so of a premade Caesar salad kit.
  5. When the pizza is done, top with the salad and enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Pita Pizza

We make this pita pizza a lot because I often have leftover shredded buffalo chicken.
  • Brush some olive oil and crushed garlic on the pita. Then, add about ¼ cup of shredded Buffalo chicken on top of the pita bread.
  • Top it off with some shredded mozzarella or provolone.
  • Next, add thinly sliced red or white onions and sliced tomatoes.
  • Cook it in a 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and toppings are hot.
  • Add some shredded lettuce and drizzle with yogurt blue cheese dressing.
Cooking note: If the shredded chicken is cold, then warm it up in the microwave for a minute or so before putting the pizza together.

Chicken And Spinach Alfredo Pizza

  • Mix a 1/4 cup of shredded chicken with about 3 tablespoons of jarred alfredo sauce.
  • Then, thinly slice (or chop) a small handful of baby spinach (regular spinach will work too) and mix it into the chicken and alfredo.
  • Spread the chicken alfredo mixture onto the pita bread and sprinkle with a few tablespoons of shredded mozzarella.
  • Bake it in a 375-degree oven for 15 – 20 minutes.
Cooking Note: For this recipe, my favorite and preferred jarred alfredo sauce is the Rao’s brand. I highly recommend it! Again, if the chicken is cold, you’ll want to warm it up before mixing it into the alfredo or spinach.

Caprese Pita Pizza

This variation is the simplest to make. It includes fresh mozzarella, tomato, and fresh basil.
  • Start with brushing the pita bread with olive oil and garlic.
  • Then, add some fresh mozzarella to the pita.
  • Next, lay some fresh tomatoes on top.
  • Cook it in a 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes and after it’s cooked I sprinkle some shredded fresh basil on top.
