Techniques for Making Pita Bread Pizza
How do you make a good pita pizza? During the baking process, you should aim for the crispiest possible pita. Hence, you should not put them on a baking sheet. Pita bread pizza may be made in two ways, both of which result in a deliciously crunchy crust:
- One of the greatest tools for the job is a pizza stone. This pizza is the crispiest I’ve ever had, but it requires some specialised equipment. (Please use this pizza stone.) You can bake up to four pizzas at once, depending on how big your stone is and how thick your bread is.
- Grates for the oven are the second-best option. Baking a pita pizza on the oven racks is a viable option. The final product isn’t nearly as crisp, but it tastes delicious anyway! If you decide to go this route, be sure to use a baking sheet in the oven to collect any messes.
Try making your own pizza sauce.
Another important aspect of a delicious pita pizza, in our opinion? Delicious pizza sauce prepared from scratch! Your pizza-making skills will be forever altered by our simple Pizza Sauce recipe; it’s fantastic on all kinds of pizza, from fresh artisan pies to pan pizzas to pita pizzas. What makes it so awesome is that…
- The blending time in a blender is about 5 minutes. There are just a few ingredients: tinned tomatoes, garlic, oregano, salt, and olive oil. Blend it everything together and try a sample. What a difference it makes in one’s existence!
- Fire-roasted tomatoes really amp up the taste. The taste is really elevated when you use fire-roasted tomatoes. Roasting tomatoes over an open flame concentrates their natural sugars, making them delicious cold or hot. Problems locating them? Make sure you’re using high-quality canned tomatoes.
As a substitute, you might use a roasted red pepper sauce.
A roasted red pepper sauce is an alternate topping for a pita pizza. Our sauce has been a staple in our household for years, and its recipe was one of the first to appear on this site. How to create red pepper sauce, step by step:
- Half of a 12-ounce container of roasted red peppers (6 ounces) should be placed in a food processor or blender. (The leftover peppers may be used as a garnish.)
- Put in ten sun-dried tomatoes and a spoonful of the oil from the container. Blend till silky smooth. Just add salt to taste.
- You may top your pizza with the leftover peppers by slicing them into thin strips.

- If you have a pizza stone, put it in the oven to preheat at 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

- Put a little olive oil on each pita and brush it on both sides. Spread 3 tablespoons of pizza sauce and 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella on top of each pita. Grated Parmesan cheese and a touch of salt, please. If more toppings are wanted, they should be cut into small pieces (but not the basil).
- Prepare the dish in one of the following ways:
- Stone for baking pizza: Coat the pizza stone with oil and place as many pizzas as will fit straight onto the stone (our large stone fits four). Crisp up in the oven for 5 minutes as the cheese melts.
- Oven rack: Pizzas may go straight on the oven racks with a baking sheet beneath to collect any messes. Put in the oven for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is crispy.
- Sprinkle any added fresh basil over top. Just cut it up and serve.
