Vegan Pita Pizzas

Vegan Pita Pizzas

The last time I went grocery shopping, I specifically picked up a package of whole grain pita bread. I planned on making somewhat homemade {frozen falafel-isn’t exactly homemade} falafel gyros. My gyros turned out good except the pita bread was literally the worst ever! It was so dry and fell apart the minute I picked it up. I was so disappointed in the whole meal I took the greens, tomatoes, onions,  falafel and Tzatziki sauce off the bread and threw it in the garbage. I am not one to waste food but I definitely wasn’t going to eat it. I decided next time I go shopping I won’t be buying the pita bread again.

Then, yesterday I was thinking about something quick to make for my entire family {me, hubbz and my teenager} I saw the pita bread sitting in my pantry. I knew I would not be using them for any type of sandwich and I didn’t want it to go to waste so thought I would transform them into individual pizzas that we can each add our own toppings. A simple dinner cooked in under 10 minutes, I can’t beat that. The pita bread worked perfectly for this recipe. So I just might buy the pita bread again but for only to make mini pizzas like this. Experimenting in the kitchen is so fun, when it doesn’t work for one scenario try it in another form and sometimes you may surprise yourself at the end result and what you create.


To begin, preheat your oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

This easiest way to build and layer the “pizzas” are to lay the pita bread on the parchment paper so you won’t have to move it once all the toppings are on it.

Start with your choice of sauce. You could use a tomato sauce, pesto sauce, cheese or alfredo sauce or even a bbq sauce. It all depends on what kind of pizza you’re going for. Then sprinkle on garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried basil and a little sea salt and black pepper.

Next, chop your vegetables and cruelty-free meat options. Layer your choice of toppings. I used organic red bell peppers, red onions, organic grape tomatoes, fresh parsley, jalapeños and i cut up a buffalo chickpea burger and put that on as well. 

Add a layer of vegan mozzarella shreds or another vegan cheese that you would like to add.

Place the pita pizzas in the oven and Bake on 400F for 8-10 minutes depending on your oven. Slice and serve immediately. Enjoy!
