Margherita Pita Pizza

Margherita Pita Pizza

My kids were hungry for a snack this weekend, so I went in search of ingredients to throw together. I had some pita bread, olive oil, cheese, tomatoes, and basil, so I made a pita pizza and baked it until crispy. This healthy and tasty Margherita pita pizza took less than 15 minutes to put together and bake. My kids devoured it in minutes and loved every single bite.

How to Make a Margherita Pita Pizza

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Drizzle a bit of olive oil on the pita bread and spread it around evenly. Season with a bit of sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes, to taste. Sprinkle a bit of parmesan on top of the pita followed by a bit of mozzarella, then place the tomato slices on top.

Place the pita pizza into the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and top with fresh basil; slice. Serve with grated parmesan on the side. Enjoy.
