These little pizzas are just fabulous! Try these tips though: first purchase the thinnest pita breads you can find and pre-toast them rather than just warm them in a 400 degree oven. Let them get ever so slightly crisped before topping them. This will result in a much better crust. Second you can make your own pizza sauce which is much more flavorful than plain tomato sauce. Mix a small can of roasted garlic tomato paste with an 8 ounce can of roasted garlic tomato sauce. It is the perfect pizza sauce in both flavor and consistency suitable for ANY pizza recipe. These little pizzas were really divine an excellent appetizer for a party when cut into quarters. YUM! Read More

I buy pita bread from Costco that is absolutely wonderful and used it with this recipe. Since I was making it for my picky 5 year old I had to skip all of the special toppings and just use spaghetti sauce and cheese. He still prefers Domino's but when were pressed for time this will work. Thanks for the wonderful idea Cheryl. Read More

I've made these for years they're wonderful! a little tip - if you prefer a crispier pita - split the pita round in half so you have two rounds and as others have noted toast slightly before adding your toppings! baking time decreases of course with the split rounds. Read More

These are great! I changed the toppings a bit adding parmesan cheese fresh basil roasted red peppers and grilled asparagus. I cut each pita pizza into 6 pieces and served them at a party. We thought the crust tasted exactly like those we found on pizzas we ate in Italy. It was amazing...my friends couldn't believe that the "crust" was pita pockets! Read More

This is a recipe where you can add any topping you like! I used chicken and green onion and peppers. I didnt have the "traditional" mozza cheese on hand so I used a little sharp cheddar. This is a great little snack that's quick to serve while watching a hockey game on TV or as an appy at a party or even as lunch! Read More

This is a great recipe! I loved using pita breads it made a perfect crust. I used whole-wheat pitas and pizza sauce from Trader Joe's. I love blue cheese but Dh doesn't so on his pizza I used feta. The blue cheese tasted great with the other ingredients. I used jarred roasted red peppers (chopped) instead of pimentos. This is something I will make often. Read More

I love idea of this. I topped the pita breads with our favourite pizza toppings rather than what was suggested and baked until the bread was crisp & cheese bubbly. Great for lunches! Read More
