This pita pizza is the fastest, easiest pizza you’ll ever make. It’s tasty, Weight Watcher’s-friendly and keeps you full through to your next meal.

I realize that pizza made on pita bread is not a new concept. I’m sure many of you have tried it.

But years ago, I belonged to weight watchers (haven’t we all at one point?), and I remember sitting in class wildly scribbling down recipes that some of the ladies were sharing.

At first, the idea of this pizza didn’t sound very appetizing. But if you’ve done weight watchers, you know that after a while, you just NEED to try something new. So I went for it.

OMG!!!! It was so good! I ate this pizza for the next week straight. True story.

The part I love is that it’s so quick and easy to make. Just layer your ingredients on a plate, pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes, and you’ve got dinner. How’s THAT for a quick meal???

Pita Pizza

Don't forget the knife and fork. This is not the kind of pizza you want to eat with your hands. Trust me. I tried. It wasn't pretty. My favorite white (but now red polka dot) t-shirt will never recover.

      Jennifer – I’ve never tried ricotta, but I don’t see why not.

  4. This was soooo good! It actually satisfied my pizza craving. I put it under the broiler in my oven instead, it made the edged of my “crust” nice and crispy. Delicious.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Laura – That DOES sound good! Thanks for trying my recipe!

    Any idea how many WW Points this is? Looks good!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Depends on the pita bread you buy.

  6. i made this for lunch today and it was delicious! i didn’t have any ww pita, so I used one of those flatbread things (100cal). I toasted the flatbread in the toaster oven first, then layered the rest of the ingredients on top, and then broiled it all again for a few minutes. It was messy and yummy and super filling. will definitely make again, and maybe add other veggies. :)) thanks for sharing!

  7. Erin Camden says:

    Does the cottage cheese melt? Also, does it make the bread soggy? Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Erin – Yes, it melts. And no, it doesn’t make it soggy, particularly because it doesn’t much touch the pita to begin with.
