Pita Pizza with Spinach, Mushrooms, Onions, and Fresh Tomatoes

Pita Pizza with Spinach, Mushrooms, Onions, and Fresh Tomatoes

This is such a quick and easy lunch or dinner to prepare when you don’t have time to make homemade pizza dough. I love that these mini pizzas are the perfect size for one person! You can use any ingredients you prefer but I decided to go vegetarian on this pizza. I used leftover marinara sauce then added shredded mozzarella, some sautéed mushrooms and spinach with garlic, and raw onions (you can sauté the onions with the mushrooms but I like the flavor of raw onions on pizza). These pita pizzas take less than 10 minutes to bake and turn out crisp on the bottom and so full of flavor. I love adding fresh tomato slices to the top of my pizzas – they look pretty & they taste great.

  1. Very quick and wholesome meal! I love using pita when making a ” last minute” pizza!

  2. We like to use Naan as pizza crust but never tried pita – we’ll have to change that. Looks healthy and delicious.

  3. I still have some fresh-picked tomatoes. This looks like a delicious and healthy way to use them!

  4. Anything that gives you a fast meal that’s also delicious is a big win! I think I’d need a lot more cheese than you did; one of our favorite adages in this family is “Life is better with cheese.”

  5. Quick meals are the name of the game in this house lately! Love this!
