Easy Pepperoni Pita Pizza

Easy Pepperoni Pita Pizza

Who doesn’t love a good pizza? These days I’m always looking for a healthier version of my favorite foods, pizza being one of them! One day I went out on a limb because I was craving pizza and didn’t want to order delivery. I had some pita bread, shredded cheese, and a can of tomato sauce in the pantry.

I decided to be a little creative and what-do-ya-know? My pita pizza was born! I was shocked at how good it was. The next time I made them I used pepperoni and diced veggies and they were even better! These things have been on repeat in my house and even my husband loves them!

When I’m craving pizza, but looking for something a little lighter, these definitely hit the spot. They are super customizable and come to the table in about 30 minutes start to finish. They are so easy to make and don’t take much effort at all to put together. I don’t know about you, but I need these kinds of meals in my life! Here’s how you make them!
