I seen these pizzas at a birthday party a few summers ago. Everyone could make their own pizzas and then one guy was
burning them to a crisp cooking them on the grill. The idea that people could make their own was awesome. They also had a couple people chopping and dicing any ingredients that would get low. Great party idea!
Of course I had to start doing this at home and it worked great for when I had a houseful of hungry teenagers. It also worked great when we had friends over. So let’s get started, you will need:
Pita bread (Regular or whole wheat)
Pizza sauce (homemade or canned)
Pizza toppings of your choice, I had pepperoni and ham pizza. I’m a meat pizza kinda’ girl.
Garlic salt, optional
Carefully slice the pita bread in half.
Putting the cut side (rough side) down.
If you put the pizza sauce on the rough side it tends to soak into the bread. Using the flat side guarantees you’ll have some sauce left once it’s cooked. Trust me on this one, I’m a pita pizza professional perfectionist! Say that five times 😉 Sprinkle the sauce with a dash of garlic salt.
Now start topping your pizza with your favorite ingredients.
And lastly add the mozzerella cheese.
The last time I made these it was cold outside so I didn’t grill them. I used the oven, set at 400 degrees, preheated about 10 minutes. Cook each pizza 5-7 minutes. On the grill cook over low-medium heat for about 5-7 minutes, keeping the lid shut. No peeking, yeah right who doesn’t peek? ;
A grilling idea for those nights when you don’t want to heat up your kitchen with the oven.
And there you have it, perfect little pita pizzas and everyone is satisfied with their own lil’ creation. Or two, or three.
I think I need to make these again…pronto!
