This pita pizza recipe makes a fast and easy meal! Pita bread stands in as the crust of these personal pizzas.


  • 3/4 cup Homemade Pizza Sauce (or Roasted Red Pepper Sauce*)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Grated or shredded Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
  • Fresh basil, for garnish (optional)
  • Other toppings: chopped artichoke hearts, red onion, sliced cherry tomatoes, jarred roasted red peppers*, sauteed mushrooms, prosciutto, mini pepperoni, chopped bell peppers, pesto, feta, goat cheese, smoked mozzarella or gouda, etc.


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit with a pizza stone if you have one.
  2. Make the Homemade Pizza Sauce.
  3. Brush both sides of each pita lightly with olive oil. Top each pita with 3 tablespoons pizza sauce and ¼ cup shredded mozzarella. Add a sprinkle of grated Parmesan and a small pinch of salt. Add additional bite-size chopped toppings if desired (but not the basil).
  4. Cook using one of the following methods:
    1. Pizza stone (crispiest): Place as many pizzas as fit directly onto the preheated pizza stone (our large stone fits four). Bake 5 minutes until crispy and the cheese is melted.
    2. Oven rack: Place the pizzas directly onto the oven racks, placing a baking sheet underneath to catch any drips. Bake 5 minutes until crispy and the cheese is melted.
  5. Top with fresh basil, if using. Slice into pieces and serve.


*For the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, in a food processor or blender, place 6 ounces roasted red peppers (half a 12-ounce jar), 10 sundried tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon of the oil from the sun-dried tomato jar. Purée until smooth. Taste and add salt as desired. Use the remaining roasted red peppers to top the pizzas, sliced into thin strips.
