This pita pizza recipe is super fast, easy and delicious with pesto and tomatoes!

As may of you know, I’ve been working on filling out my Weekend Prep Meals section. My aim with this is to help you see that meal prep is both fast and easy if you do it right. I know there are a lot of sites out there with elaborate shopping lists that belong to hours worth of weekend meal prep. But it simple doesn’t have to be that way. I mean, if you WANT to go that route, more power to you! Go for it! But so many of you have told me that time and meal prep are your two big issues with clean eating, that I thought I’d work on helping you see just how easy it can be!

I also have another section on this site called Simple Meals. These meals are “recipes” that don’t really require any measurements because they are so simple and easy to make. You can add the ingredients in any amounts you prefer.

I thought with this series of pita pizza recipes, I would combine the two so you can see that you don’t even really need to measure with some thing. You can’t get much easier or faster than that!

The nice thing about this pizza and the three that will follow are that they freeze really well. So you will also find these in my Freezer Meals section because these are so crazy easy to prep for the freezer!

In fact, if you’d like to see just how easy this is, click play on this video to see the recipe in action!

    Omg I love pesto! so tasty. I also am a huge fan of shortcut recipes and this is one of them!

      AZ – Pesto is always a favorite around my house too. This one was so fast that I made a bunch for the freezer. Now my little guy can grab them whenever he wants and I don’t have to worry about supervising him in the kitchen. Love the convenience!

  2. Hi,
    You say shredded mozzarella, I assume this is not the bag type?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      A – No. Just buy a ball of mozzarella and shred it by hand.
