Did you know that the pita bread makes a great instant pizza crust? If you have a package of pita breads at home, you can make very tasty individual pizzas in less than 20 minutes!
Making a pita pizza is very easy – just use the round pita as a pizza base, add tomato sauce, toppings and cheese and bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes. You can even have a pita pizza making party where everyone picks their own toppings to put on the pita pizza – so fun!
You can use any kind of pita bread for making pizzas – it doesn’t matter if the pita has a pocket inside or not. Any pita baked in the hot oven with the toppings makes a yummy pizza crust.
This recipe makes a quite unusual pizza – a chicken onion pita pizza 🙂 The toppings for this pizza are chicken pieces and onion slices, added on top of tomato sauce and sprinkled with cheese – so filling and yummy! Also, using the chicken pieces as a pizza topping is just one of the great ways to use leftover chicken! If you don’t have cooked chicken on hand, you can also use canned chicken.
