One of my favorites is Barbeque Chicken Pita Pizzas. To make, use barbeque sauce instead of tomato sauce and top pizza with Monterey Jack cheese, shredded cooked chicken and bacon crumbles.
Hawaiian Pita Pizza:
Top pizza with tomato sauce, diced cooked ham,, pineapple tidbits and mozzarella cheese.
Have fun with this Pita Pizza Recipe. One year for my daughter’s birthday slumber party, I did custom pita pizzas for each girl and gave them a little menu card to check off what toppings they liked. It was a big hit! Everyone loves Pita Pizzas!
