Quick Pizza Fix

Ever crave pizza, but get turned off when you think of "Greasy-Hut" or those freezer-burned round things they sell at grocery stores? If so, maybe you should try out this cheap, quick, and extremely easy method for making your own pizza, without sticking any dough to your ceiling.

It's also great because you can make them how ever you want. Make a traditional pepperoni and cheese pizza, or a barbecue chicken pizza, or a veggie pizza. It's all a matter of wh
at you chop up.

Here's what you need:

  • Thick pita bread or Asian Naan bread
  • Pizza Sauce (canned)
  • Mozzarella Cheese
Example Toppings:
  • Pesto (optional)
  • Pepperoni
  • Mushrooms
  • Green/Red/Yellow/Orange Peppers
  • Onion
  • Sun-dried Tomato
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Pre-cooked chicken (maybe from a leftover meal)
  • Barbecue Sauce
  • etc...
Here's what you do:
  1. Preheat oven on to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Grate the cheese and chop your veggies/toppings.
  3. Take out the "crust" from the package... We're using smaller round pita breads as our crust. If they aren't flat enough, what I do is I usually microwave them for 20-30 seconds to make them moist, then roll them flat with a rolling pin.
  4. I like putting pesto on them before I put the pizza sauce. I usually put a whole teaspoon on each, and spread it thinly and evenly across the crust.
  5. Spread the pizza sauce evenly on the crust.
  6. Put your toppings on, start with the mozzarella, and then work your way to the veggies.
  7. Place pizzas on tinfoil on a shallow baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees on the center rack in the oven.
  9. At 10 minutes, turn oven temperature to broil and place on a higher rack in the oven, and bake for 3-5 more minutes, watching carefully.
Quick and easy!

  1. I WANT ONE :) I basically LIVED off of these last year. The Pita bread is brilliant and healthy too! I've never been a fan of the whole pesto thing though, some sweet pizza sauce should not be messed with. And one of my favourite ingredients: you have to have some pineapple or olives (but they should not both be on the same pizza).
