Pita pizza recipe – Experiment with different toppings

This pita pizza recipe is so easy to prepare that is almost embarrassing to call it a recipe! All you need are some Greek pita breads and your imagination. Pita bread (from Greek: πίτα) is a staple of countless Greek meals; a favorite to serve with dips and spreads and most commonly known from souvlaki, a very popular Greek street food, which is actually a pita bread sandwich. This pita pizza recipe is a different take on the traditional Greek pita bread dishes, where pita is used instead of the usual pizza dough. For the topping of this pita pizza, try experimenting with any ingredients you like or you have laying around, or try out one of my two favourite pita pizza recipe. The ‘Italian style pita pizza recipe’ with melty mozzarella cheese, fragrant basil pesto and rocket or my absolute favourite..
