Pepperoni Pita Pizza

Is your family begging you to order a pizza? Put down the phone and instead create this healthy, kid-friendly healthy version right at home. Turkey pepperoni and a whole-wheat pita add a whole lot of nutrition — and plenty of delicious flavor! — to this fun lunch or dinner choice.


This recipe makes 4 servings

  • 2 pita, 100% whole-wheat, (6" diameter)
  • 1 cup(s) pizza sauce
  • 1 cup(s) cheese, mozzarella, part-skim, shredded
  • 2 ounce(s) pepperoni, turkey, sliced (about 32 slices)
  • 1/4 cup(s) pepper(s), red sweet, roasted, chopped
  • 4 teaspoon cheese, grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon oil, olive


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Split the pitas in half to form circles.

Place the pita halves on 2 baking sheets. Spread 1/4 cup pizza sauce on each pita half to within 1/2" of the edge. Sprinkle each half with 1/4 cup mozzarella. Arrange pepperoni slices on top of the cheese. Sprinkle each pizza with 1 tablespoon peppers and top with 1 teaspoon Parmesan. Drizzle the oil over the pizzas.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove to serving plates and cut into quarters.
