DIY: Pitta Pizzas

pitta pizza

Hello lovelies – today I wanted to share with you something I’ve been making recently, pitta pizzas!

I started on a diet back in the middle of May, and one of the things I really missed was eating pizza. That was until I came across a recipe for pitta pizzas on Aldi’s website, that offered an alternative to takeaway fatty pizzas. I really appreciated being able to have pizza without eating tons of saturated fat, and an excessive amount of calories. I like that these are really simple to throw together, and can be a bit of fun too – you could have a pizza party with friends, or be a good activity to do with children – because you can customise your toppings.

As you might be able to see, I bought all of my ingredients at Aldi. Not sure if I’ve mentioned this, but I do work for Aldi – that in no way makes my opinion biased. The products are great quality, without breaking the bank.

What you’ll need:

Wholemeal pitta bread

Tomato Puree

Light Mozarella

Customisable:

Basically you can choose whatever toppings you’d like. Some to think about are, maybe adding thinly sliced tomatoes or mixed herbs. I added pepperoni and bbq chicken pizzas to mine. I also like red onions and mushrooms on my pizzas. One extra I add sometimes is grated mozarella, as well as the light one because I like the taste of the two together. One thing to note is that if you’re dieting, beware that the topics will add up – but really, they’re a lot better than takeaways or frozen pizzas!

Here’s how you make them:

Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C or gas mark 5.

Place your pitta breads onto a baking tray, I like to use a pizza tray with holes in to so it crisps the bottoms a little more.

Whilst your oven is heating up, you spread 1 teaspoon of tomato puree onto each pitta. I like to leave a couple of millimetres around the edges so that I can hold on to them.

Now for the fun part! Add all of your desired toppings. One fun thing that could be fun is to invite your family or friends round and each make a combination pizza. Then score each others pizzas.

Add your cheese on top, and then pop them in the oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling and then enjoy! You could also cook them under a medium to hot grill for about 6 – 8 minutes, if you’d prefer.

I hope you like you pitta pizzas, let me know if you try out this recipe – and also what topping combinations you used!
