Pizza is a family favorite. My personal favorite is pepperoni and mushrooms, YUM!
But we all have our own favorites and preferences, so ordering delivery pizza that will make everyone happy can be challenging.
That is why we prefer to make our own pizza instead of ordering out. Each kid gets their own mini pizzas and everyone is happy. It is a fun way to have a family pizza night.
This homemade pizza recipe is super simple to make, especially when you use Pita Flat Bread.Jump to Recipe

- Greek Pita Bread
- Pizza Sauce
- Shredded Cheese
Pita Bread can be found in the grocer's bread aisle. It is a thin flatbread in the shape of a circle, making a perfect pizza crust.
Feel free to substitute my ingredients with different toppings.
Pita Pizza Recipe Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 350º.
Prepare the pizza toppings however you like.
Slice vegetables into small bite-size pieces, chop bell peppers and shred your cheese.
If creating a pizza bar, it is easiest to keep the different ingredients separated in their own containers.
Place the pita bread in a pie tin. This makes the pizza easy to move around and then it is ready to go straight into the oven. Although a large baking sheet works just as well.
Start with a scoop of pizza sauce and spread it around the pita bread.
Sprinkle a little bit of cheese, and then layer your toppings of choice to top of the pita.
Then my favorite way to finish it off is with more cheese. Lots of it.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
The bread is already baked, so you don't have to worry about not baking long enough to cook the crust.
The pita pizzas come out of the oven piping hot and delicious with all of that ooey-gooey cheese.
Slide the pizza onto a cutting board and slice it into 4 pieces with a pizza cutter, and enjoy! These delicious pizzas are the perfect size for a quick dinner.
Do you like black olives, fresh basil, or feta cheese on your pizza? Feel free to play chef and add all of your favorite ingredients.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Is pita bread similar to pizza dough?

How long to cook pita bread pizza?
Bake in a preheated 350º oven for 10-12 minutes or until the toppings are heated through.
What cheese is best on a pizza?
Mozzarella cheese is the most popular cheese topping when it comes to pizza. This cheese melts beautifully and tastes great with a variety of toppings.
I personally prefer a mix of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, so go with your favorite and you can't go wrong.
Can I use tomato sauce instead of pizza sauce?
Pizza sauce can be just about anything! It can be barbecue sauce or even ranch.
If you are wanting a more traditional pizza sauce then yes, you can use tomato sauce. But you may want to add some spices like red pepper flakes, or garlic powder to add flavor to your homemade pizza sauce.
Can I substitute whole wheat pita bread?
Yes, you can use whole wheat pita bread or gluten-free pita bread to make personal pizzas.
How do I store leftover pizza?
It is best to store leftover little pizzas in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
According to the USDA Food Safety Guidelines pizza leftovers are safe to eat 3-4 days after if stored correctly in a refrigerator.
Our Baking Essential List:
- For baking casseroles, we use Glass Baking Dishes. I especially like the dishes with lids so leftovers can be transferred straight to the fridge.
- Silicone Kitchenware is my favorite because they don't scratch my cookware and are super easy to clean!
- To prepare all of those ingredients a Glass Cutting Board is a must. We even keep ours on our counter at all times.
- This Knife Set will also become your favorite! They cut beautifully and with the hollow design of the knife, food doesn't stick to the blade.
