Fun with Pita Pizza – Mushroom Pita Pizza


Mushroom Pita Pizza
15-minute cheater’s mushroom pizza: 5 mins to prepare, 10 minutes to bake

This is another one of my 15-minute “fast food” meal. I like to buy a box of assorted mushrooms and whenever I have leftovers, I use it for topping this mini pizza. Using the shortcut method of using pita bread as pizza crust, this personal size pizza can be whipped up in 15 minutes: 5 minutes to prepare & assemble, and 10 minutes to bake. For more information about pita pizzas, check out my detailed write-up here.

Mushroom Pita Pizza
Experiment with (undiluted) cream of mushroom sauce as the base for the pizza – quite nice!

(makes 1 pita pizza)

– 1 pita bread
– pizza or tomato-based pasta sauce or (undiluted) cream of mushroom sauce
– assorted mushrooms, sliced or diced
– baby spinach leaves (western type), torn to smaller pieces
– shredded mozzarella cheese

(for step by step photos on how to assemble this pizza, refer to this post)

1. Place a piece of pita bread on a flat oven-safe tray.
2. Spread some pizza sauce (you can also use tomato-based pasta sauce or cream of mushroom sauce) evenly over the pita bread using the back of a spoon.
3. Arrange mushrooms evenly all over the pita bread, followed by a layer of cheese, followed by a bit of mushrooms and spinach leaves for garnishing.
4. Bake in preheated oven of 200C (392F) for roughly 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve with tobasco sauce and grated parmesan cheese if you like.

      yes, one of the few occassions where I don’t mind a thick pizza ;)

    This is such a healthier way of eating pizza. I often order my pizza with mushroom only. Making my own pita mushroom pizza is definitely better.

      I got sick of ordering pizza delivery after a while. I find the home made ones taste fresher and more economical ;)

    i’ve always love pita bread and always have it as it is, no more than that. stumbling into your page today makes me very happy!!! i don’t know how else to eat the pita bread.thanks sooooooo much for posting this.

    oh, btw, i have my own recipe with pita step in to my blog (most of them are a mix of malay and english language, sorry he he), for what i do with pita bread.

    again, thank you so much!

    bummer! i forgot the blog address..hehe


    • wiffy replied: — April 11th, 2010 @ 8:44 pm

      hi missiez, thanks for your note! :) I visited your blog but I can’t find your post on pita bread… can show me the link?


      • missiez replied: — April 29th, 2010 @ 3:42 am

        double bummer :x ! sorry that’s my rambling’s my cooking blog address:

        if you noticed, there’s a recipe called “oven baked chicken wing” or something, where i put in some pita bread along with the chicken wings. the olive oil that i used as to avoid the chicken stick onto the tray makes the pita bread tender.

        i’ve tried your pizza recipe several times but each time i did, i didn’t even bother to snap some photos..they’re so irresistible :halo: !!! again, thanks a bunch!

    I used to make pita pizzas when I got home late from work. A great quick and relatively healthy meal. Thanks for reminding me of them and I like your toppings :).
