DIY Pita Pizza

For my 25th birthday my family and I celebrated over a few glasses of wine and these DIY Pita Pizzas. I was inspired by a few Pinterest recipes, but since I knew everyone had their own favorite pizza, I picked up a variety of pizza toppings.

Wheat Pita Bread

Pizza Sauce
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Turkey Pepperoni (or regular)

Crumbled Sausage
Chopped Onion
Chopped Green Bell Pepper
Since I like thin crust pizza I sliced the pita into 2 crusts. Either way, the pita holds up nicely and tastes delicious. Next, I brushed olive oil on all crusts and baked at 450 degrees for about 8 minutes to harden before adding toppings. Keep an eye out to prevent burning with the thin crusts. Once those are ready add sauce, cheese and all the toppings you desire!

Pop back in the oven on 450 degrees for another 10 minutes depending on the amount of toppings. Let cool then ENJOY! My sister gave me a pizza stone and I loved the way it cooked the pizzas.

Pita Pizzas are a quick and convenient menu option for any occasion. Guests will love the fact they are able to customize their own meal without spending time in the kitchen making dough from scratch. I encourage you to get creative with the topping set up. DIY topping bars are trending in the food and beverage industry. Below are some different bar ideas that I've recently see.
