Easy Pita Pesto Pizza 3So I know pita bread pizzas aren’t exactly a new, creative spin on pizza, but they are for me!

I’ve been buying pita bread lately and using them for sandwiches instead of using bread. I had a bag that had been in the cupboard for a few days and were getting a little less than fresh. That’s when the idea was born in my head to bake them.

Easy Pita Pesto Pizza 4I love pesto so much. I make it from scratch all the time. The flavor combo is my very favorite!

So spread the pita with pesto and layer first with spinach leaves, then sliced mushrooms, tomatoes, and feta. Sprinkle some mozzarella over the top and bake for 20 minutes.

    I have all the ingredients in my house now, just need to go make some pesto {and amazingly I even have basil in the house} Must be meant to be. Pesto pizza is my absolute favorite, the pesto adds so much more flavor to the dish than a plain old marinara would do. This recipe rocks girl, can’t wait to try it! Pinned.

    These look so flippin’ good, Jen! I have to say that I’m disappointed that you couldn’t combine butterscotch chips, sriracha, and Ritz crackers, but I guess I’ll have to settle for delicious pizzas ;)
