Pita Bread Pizza

Wednesday, August 4, 2021
Seriously the easiest pizza, snack or appetizer you will ever make quickly for unexpected guests or a party is Pita Bread Pizza.

Just remember to keep a package of pita bread in the freezer(or make my homemade recipe for pita bread), bottled sauce, and mozzarella shredded on hand.

This is all homemade from scratch but you can use all store-bought and have all kinds of pizza made for an individual taste!

The toppings are endless and if you want dessert, don't forget to try my Mini Fruit Pizza!
