Pita Pizzas

Enjoy this pizza pie with luscious tomatoes, rosemary-seasoned ground beef and crumbly feta cheese. The flavours work perfectly with hearty pita bread crust.

Pita Pizzas

  • 6 ounces lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 8 ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 2 6 inches whole wheat or white pita bread rounds
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup shredded fresh spinach
  • 1 small tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (1 ounce)
  • 12 pitted ripe olives, halved (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium nonstick skillet, cook ground beef, onion, and garlic until meat is browned; drain off fat. Stir tomato sauce and rosemary into meat mixture in skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes.
  2. Carefully split pita bread rounds in half horizontally; place pita halves, rough sides up, in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly toasted.
  3. Top toasted pita bread with meat mixture; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven. Top with spinach, tomato, feta cheese, and, if desired, olives; serve immediately.

Happy Cooking
