Veggie Pita Bread Pizza

Veggie Pita Bread Pizza is a quick and healthy alternative to traditional pizza. It’s perfect for a light lunch, snack, or even a quick dinner. Using pita bread as the crust makes it easy and convenient, and you can customize the toppings to suit your taste.

Ingredients Quantities:

  • 2 whole wheat pita bread rounds
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce or pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup assorted vegetables (such as bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, spinach, olives)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped (optional, for garnish)

Optional Additions:

  • Red pepper flakes (for added spice)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (for extra flavor)


1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Prepare the Pita Bread:

  • Place the pita bread rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

3. Assemble the Pizzas:

  • Spread a layer of tomato sauce or pizza sauce evenly over each pita bread round.
  • Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
  • Distribute the assorted vegetables evenly over the cheese. You can use any combination of vegetables you prefer.

4. Season and Bake:

  • Drizzle olive oil over the pizzas.
  • Sprinkle dried oregano, salt, and pepper over the top.

5. Bake the Pizzas:

  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges of the pita bread are crispy.

6. Garnish and Serve:

  • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  • Sprinkle chopped fresh basil leaves over the pizzas for a burst of freshness, if desired.
  • Slice each pizza into wedges or squares and serve immediately.

Tips for Success:

  • Use whole wheat pita bread for added fiber and nutrients.
  • Customize the toppings with your favorite vegetables or add cooked chicken or tofu for extra protein.
  • Watch the pizzas closely while baking to prevent burning the edges.
