Instructions

I am listing 3 different methods to make Pita Pizza below. Choose your preferred method based on the number of pizzas you are making as you can make only 1 pizza at a time on stove top of air fryer.

Choose your Preferred cooking method below and then Choose your toppings flavor below and start assembling and get ready to eat in 10 mins.

3 Cooking Methods

1. Cook Stove top Pizza :

  • Brush the pan lightly with oil all over and heat up the Pan until it is medium hot.
  • Now place the pita bread puffed side down on the pan just for few seconds to slightly heat it up on one side.
  • Now reduce the heat to low, remove the pita bread from the pan onto a flat surface and top it with all the preferred toppings including sauce, seasonings, toppings and cheese ( Use only grated cheese variety on stove top cooking as the bottom of pita bread will burn if we wait for thicker cheese cuts to melt )
  • Put the prepared pizza back on the pan and COVER THE PAN with a correct fitting lid to cook on low heat until the cheese melts. ( It usually takes around 3 to 5 mins )

Note : Since it only takes 3 to 5 mins to cook the pizza on stove top, its better if we choose toppings that doesn't need any cooking like cooked meat, grilled veggies, pineapple, canned jalapenos, olives etc.. and avoid Veggies that need cooking.

2. BAKED PITA PIZZA :

  • Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Brush the Pita bread lightly with oil all over on both sides. Brush the surface on which you are baking pizza with oil lightly too.
  • Apply preferred toppings including sauce, seasonings, toppings and cheese.
  • Bake on a Pizza Pan or a Sheet pan for around 10 to 12 mins until cheese melts and the edges are crispy and ENJOY !!

3. AIR FRYER PITA PIZZA :

  • Pre heat the Air fryer to 350 degrees F. Brush the Pita bread lightly with oil all over on both sides. Brush the air fryer bin on which you are baking pizza with oil lightly too.
  • Apply preferred toppings including sauce, seasonings, toppings. If you are using grated cheese DO NOT PUT THE CHEESE YET. If you are using thicker cuts of cheese, you can put it in this step itself.
  • Air Fry for around 3 to 4 mins for the toppings to cook and now open the air fryer bin and put preferred cheese on pizza and then air fry for another 2 to 3 mins until cheese melts making sure not to burn it !! NOW ENJOY (most important step 😉)

3 Topping combination Ideas

I am listing 3 main topping combinations that I made today.

  • Greek inspired : Spread a thin layer of pizza tomato sauce (or marinara sauce) on a pita. Top with sprinkle of salt, fresh basil leaves, roasted red peppers, sliced kalamata olives, mozzarella and feta cheese. Sprinkle with dried oregano and cook/bake/air fry until cheese melts.
  • Mexican inspired : Spread a thin layer of refried beans, regular red Salsa, diced onions, diced bell peppers, Mexican cheese and canned or fresh jalapenos. Sprinkle with dried oregano and cook/bake/air fry until cheese melts.
  • Classic Veggie Pizza : Spread a thin layer of pizza tomato sauce ( or marinara sauce ) on a pita. Top with sprinkle of salt, diced onions, sliced Mushrooms, diced green bell peppers and combination of grated mozzarella cheese and Mexican cheese. Place tomato rings on top of cheese and sprinkle with dried oregano, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes( optional ) and cook/bake/air fry until cheese melts.

Some other Ideas for topping combinations :

  • Pesto Sauce, spinach and goat cheese pizza
  • Paneer Pizza ( if you have left over Paneer curry, it would taste awesome !! )
  • Alfredo Sauce, basil, tomatoes, cooked shrimp, fresh mozzarella
  • Marinara Sauce, Grilled veggies, feta / goat / fresh mozzarella cheese

Notes

  • Temperatures in the Oven and air fryer vary from oven to oven and air fryer to air fryer. So follow the suggested times as a guide line and make sure cheese is melted and crust is enough crispy before you take the pizza out.
  • Chop any veggies small or thin to make sure they cook enough.
