Recipe: Baked Macaroni Pita Pizza

June 16th, 2011 11:43 am by Kelly

A little while back I decided to try a mashup of a pita pizza and a mac & cheese pizza, using some leftover baked macaroni I had in the fridge. Not bad, though the crispiness of the baked pita bread was a little disconcerting when paired with the tenderness of the twice-baked pasta. Probably this should go on a nice thick crust pizza, like the original macaroni and cheese concoction?

Still, an inspired way to use up leftovers. (What’s that? Got some extra chocolate chip pancakes? PUT ‘EM ON A PIZZA! P.I.Z.Z.A.!)

2011-05-23 - Baked Macaroni Pita Pizza - 0010


1 piece of pita bread, freshly baked or frozen
Several cups of red sauce
1/2 to 1 cup of mozzarella Daiya (or the vegan cheese of your choice)
2 to 4 cups of leftover baked macaroni
(Since I usually wing it, I don’t have a specific recipe to offer, but this dish includes pasta sauce, elbows, mozzarella Daiya cheese, mushrooms, garlic, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and green and yellow zucchini. You can easily use your own favorite recipe!)


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). To defrost a frozen piece of pita bread, just pop in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds.

3. Spread a generous amount of red sauce on the pita bread, followed by a sprinkling of Daiya cheese. Next, carefully spread the baked macaroni on top, one spoonful at a time, until you’ve reached the desired amount. You can either go with a light sprinkling (as with this vegan penne and cheese pizza), or really pack it on (see: my mac & cheese pizza) – be your own decider person!

4. Bake at 425 degrees F for ten to fifteen minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Place it on a low rack so that the pasta doesn’t get too crispy.

5. Serve warm and with a fork!
