Here’s a fun, fast meal idea for those nights when you’re craving a pizza nom, but don’t have the time or energy to make one from scratch. PITA PIZZAS! They’re like Pizza Hut’s Personal Pan Pizzas, but way healthier (or less unhealthy, depending on your choice of toppings), relatively inexpensive, and totally vegan. Plus, from assembly to bake time they take about as much time to make as delivery. SCORE!

Personal Pita Pizzas


Cooking spray (optional)

A piece of pita bread (one per pizza). We stock up on packages of freshly baked pita bread from the Jerusalem Cafe (their hummus? AWESOME!), freezing the stuff that we don’t plan on using immediately. It keeps rather well – even when kept in deep freeze for months on end – and you can defrost it easily before use: just pop in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds before adding your toppings and baking.

Red sauce

The toppings of your choice: spices, veggies, fruits, nondairy cheeses, vegan meats, etc. For the pizzas pictured here, we used: mozzarella Follow Your Heart, black olives and Lightlife Smart Pepperoni (top) and cheddar Follow Your Heart, black olives and a few diced cutlets of Harvest Direct Soy Chiken (from a box!; bottom).


1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.

2. As the oven’s preheating, place your (defrosted) pita bread onto a pizza stone (or lightly greased pan). Add the toppings: red sauce, spices, nondairy cheese, vegan meats, fruits and veggies.

3. Bake at 425 degrees F for ten to fifteen minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
