"I once had a craving for a pizza, but I didn't have the things to make pizza dough, so I got this idea! A good recipe for kids, too. I use pocket-less pitas we buy from Indian grocery, but I'm sure regular will work. Note: I edited this recipe by making more exact ingredient amounts, sorry about the previous vagueness, I posted this recipe back when I was just 10 or 11. :)"

"Had this for lunch today- loved it! I think this is my new way of making pizza at home. So easy- and I love that the crust is so thin and crispy! I used ground beef as my topping, but will definitely try with many different toppings in the future. Thanks for a great keeper recipe."
"I've been making pizza this way for years. They are great and simple. I love ham, pineapple with BBQ sauce version topped with chesse and my family loves bacon cheese burger pizza using ketchup and mustard like the fast food chains for the sauce."
"This was so easy! The two tablespoons of sauce was the perfect amount, but I eyeballed the cheese. I will be making this again for sure!"
"this is great! Im sure everyone has craved pizza at one point,but can't have it and this is a great solution!"
"Yummy and so easy! Thanks."
"I decided to make this for a late dinner and I LOVED it i changed it up a little by using roasted garlic olive oil the crust was so thin and crisp when it came out it was delicious ! I would also recommend using an italian mix of seasonings ."
"Thanks for this recipe! I wanted to make these with the kids, but didn't know how long and at what temp to bake them. Your recipe really helped and reminded me to add a little olive oil to keep the bread from getting mushy. The kids each made their own with different toppings. It was fun and delicious."
"Yummy and soooooo easy!!Used pizza sauce and for the topping used garlic powder, dried oregano and black olives.Will be repeated very often in our house.Thanks!!!!"
"I baked some tortillas in the oven for a few minutes just until they started to get brown, then pulled them out and topped them with sauce, etc. and they were a great lunch!"
"I have been seeing recipes for pita pizzas since I have been on the Zaar, but until tonight I've never tried one, AND NOW I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I HADN'T! This was GREAT! And I'll be making this more than likely at least once a month. It totaly satisfied my craving for pizza but without all that nasty guilt. I added garlic powder, onions and tomatoes and left off the olive oil and it was just perfect. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!"
"This is good, and my 4 year old and I had fun making them today! Thanks!"
"Love these. I make them for lunch often and they easily fit into my Weight Watchers program. The pitas are far lower in calories than other pizza crusts, and I like them better. They are crisp and thin. Thanks for sharing."
"My 12y/o niece came up with this idea also. Now she has our entire family making them. I took ingredients to the beach to make for one of our meals and ended up having to make them for the kids three days in a row for lunch!! Tasty,easy and fun!!"
"And here I thought I was so unique and super lazy getting my pizza fix! lol. I've been making this for years and like it better than most frozen pizza's and pizzarias. It's like a thin crust. I keep browned ground beef & onions in my freezer for topping my pita pizza. Cheddar is my cheese of choice."
"Yum yum. I do this with French bread and with English muffins, too."
"I had some pita bread to use up, my son wanted pizza and I needed to make a quick dinner so this recipe fit the bill. I used Furmano's pizza sauce and baked them in a toaster oven at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. They came out perfectly done."
"I had no doughts about this one, using tomatoe sauce seemed a bit strange to the normal sauce you have on pizzas, but this worked incredibily well, and tasted just like a normal pizza. I didn't have all of the seasonings but it was fantastic. Thanks for the recipe"
"My kids really enjoyed these. I used little flat breads, look like pitas, and are usually near pitas in store. So fast and easy, my 10 year old son helped. Forget going out for personal pizza, these are just as good and less than half the price. Thank you very much, Ghostwriter"
"We really, really enjoyed this! Nice and crunchy, doesn't turn soggy. The one can of tomato sauce was enough coverage for 4 pita pizzas. Thanks Little_Chef!"
