Pita Pizza is a quick snack you can make with Pita Bread. All Sauced up with that special blend of Mozzarella Cheese and your Favorite Toppings.

This is a post I decided would serve as a cornerstone post for a wide variety of Pita Pizzas. Here I will list all the Pita Pizzas I have made. So be sure to check back as all future Pita Pizzas will be posted here.

They are all pretty much made the same way with different Sauces, Cheese, and Ingredients.

Pita Bread

For this recipe, we use already cooked Pita Bread or store bought Pita Bread.

Oven Baked Pita Bread

Homemade Pita Bread

Usually, I make up a big batch of Pita Bread and use it for whatever meal I’m having, and then freeze the rest for things like Pita Pizza. If using frozen Pita Bread, just remove it from the freezer and thaw.

Saidoon Pita Bread

Store bought Pita Bread

These are pretty cheap to pick up at a Middle Eastern store. I get mine for $1.00 CAD for about 5 Fresh same day made Pitas. I store these in the freezer right away.

Steamed Pita

Another cool trick is to Steam the Pita Bread, either fresh or straight from frozen. This also has the added benefit of adding moisture to the Pita that when cooked in the oven doesn’t crisp so fast. It also gives a chewier texture.

Garlic Butter Brush On

Optionally, brush on Garlic Butter before saucing with the Pizza Sauce to add extra flavor and a Garlic kick. You can also serve Garlic Sauce as a dipping sauce or the brush on for the Pita Pizzas.

Papa Johns Garlic Sauce

Papa John’s Garlic Sauce

  • 1/4 C Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 C Sunflower Oil
  • 1 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Butter Popcorn Seasoning
  • Pinch Citric Acid -About 1/4 of 1/8 tsp, very small amount
Garlic Butter

Garlic Butter

  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 1 tsp Parsley, Chives, Dehydrated Onion & Garlic Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Butter Popcorn Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp Dillweed & Aleppo Chili Flakes


  • 6 Cloves Garlic 
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 C Sunflower or Neutral Oil

Pita Pizza Sauce

Depending on the type of Pita Pizza being made, a whole array of other sauces can be used. For the standard Pizza Sauce, use Passata Pizza Sauce or other Pizza Sauces.

Passata Pizza Sauce

Passata Pizza Sauce

  • 1×680 ml Mutti Passata
  • 4 Large Basil Leaves – Finely chopped or torn
  • 3 Tbl EVOO
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 3 Sprigs Oregano – about 1/4 – 1/2 tsp dried
  • 1 Clove Garlic – Finely grated
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper – or more to taste

Mozzarella Cheese Blend

There are many types of Cheeses that can be used depending on the style of Pita Pizza being made. The standard Pizza Cheese is made from shredded high moisture Mozzarella cheese & Provolone cheese at a 3:1 ratio. This is my go-to cheese blend and is just phenomenal.

Just shred the Mozzarella Cheese and the Provolone cheese. Then combine into a Ziploc bag 3 Cups of Mozza & 1 Cup of Provolone. Mix it well and freeze.

How to cook Pita Pizza

Cook Pita Pizzas flat on a baking sheet and place into a preheated oven at 450 F with the rack in middle position. Cook for 5 minutes.

Steaming it prior to assembling will minimize cooking the crust too much and gives a chewier texture. I myself vary from sometimes putting the Pita Bread in as is because I want the Crunch or Wetting the Pita Bread to minimize it, to Steaming it for a Chewy sensation. It all depends on the mood, for me at least.

If you like it really Crispy, then cooking at the highest setting will Crisp it up in the same time frame.

The Everything Bagel Seasoning is really nice as a garnish for Pizza, too. Just sprinkle on top before serving.

Pizza on a Pita Bread. Choose your Sauce & Toppings. Wet the Pita Bread for a less crispy pizza and steam it before assembly for a Chewy Pita Pizza. Cook at 450 F for 5 minutes, or max heat for a really crispy Pita Pizza. It all depends on what you're after.

The oven preheated to 450 F is a good medium heat for better control and cooking the Pita Pizzas for 5 minutes. From here you can remove them a bit early or leave for a few seconds to crisp. Optionally broil the top for a few seconds to a minute. 
If a softer Pita Pizza is desired, cook at 400 F. Optionally steam the Pita bread before assembling for a Soft and Chewy Pita Pizza. 
If a crispy Pita Pizza is desired, cook at the highest setting your stove will go. Keep an eye on it, they crisp up fast.
