Homemade Pita Pizza

I have made quite a few mini homemade pizzas over the years with my daughter, most with mixed results at best.  In the past, we’ve used tortillas or a few layers of a flaky biscuit, and I’d sneak in some sort of veggie -either in pureed form, or very finely chopped.

But this week, I tried something a little different.  I’d bought a package of pita bread (on clearance, of course), and had ONE left.  My kids  apparently are big fans of the pita bread.  Sometimes I’ll make pita PBJs, or toast a little turkey and cheese inside one.  Or just slap some honey butter on it, and they’ll go to town.

So, I thought I’d give it a whirl turning it in to pizza.  Wow!  Was I surprised!  Here’s what we did, and why I think one secret ingredient helped make them super-relish!  Best of all, it’s such a simply process, my 4 1/2 year old daughter was able to create her own, with minimal assistance.

Homemade Pita Pizzas

 

  • 1 pita
  • EVOO
  • spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce (we used Chunky Ragu Super Vegetable Primavera)
  • cheese, shredded or cubed – whatever you’ve got on hand
  • meat & other toppings of your choice
  • garlic powder to taste
  • parmesan cheese to taste

Preheat oven to 450˚.  First, pull apart one pita in to two pieces.  Place on baking sheet.  Brush on a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil, covering pita  surface from edge to edge.  Next, spread on your sauce.  (We used the chunky Ragu, packed with veggies.)  I had some leftover fajita-flavored chicken strips, so I chopped them up finely, and we sprinkled over the sauce.  Top with cheese and garlic powder to taste.  Bake in over for 7-10 minutes.  Will come out crispy and delicious!!

What was surprising when we made these was how quickly and easily my daughter -usually the picky, reluctant eater- devoured hers in no time at all; while my two-year-old son, typically known as “The Boy Who Loves to Eat”, took a few bites, and declared himself done…  I’m still marking this as a culinary picky-tot pleasers victory.
