Pesto Pita Bruschetta - 2 Ways

Total Time

This is an healthier alternative to bruschetta using pita bread instead of a baguette or french stick. You can either use mayonnaise or cheese spread to mix with the pesto & either tomato slices or diced tomatoes. I use a soft cheese spread, the ones that are sold in triangles, they are really creamy & mix really well with the pesto.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the pesto & mayonnaise or pesto & cream cheese. ( I do this on the pita to save on dishes).
  2. Place or sprinkle tomatoes on top and then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  3. Place under you griller or broiler and cook until pitas are slightly crisp & cheese is melted.

I used mayonnaise and it gave a very good taste mixed with the pesto. I sliced my tomato but another time I'll dice it. Instead of parmesan, I used grated mozzarella cheese. Thanks Mandy. It was yummy. Made for the Babes of ZWT4

Outstanding! Made for a very quick and FLAVORFUL lunch today using a Laughing Cow cheese wedge and 1t pesto. I diced and seeded a roma tomato to top it off with and really I can't say enough about the taste (I was using a great flavorful pesto).... I just kept saying "I had the greatest lunch today" and it really was. Thanks so much for posting; I will be making this often as I always have pita's around! Made for ZWT4.
