Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 wholemeal pita bread
  • 1 Tbsp pasta sauce
  • 1/2 small onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small red or green capsicum thinly sliced
  • 1 slice of pineapple cut into small cubes
  • 5 black olives pitted and cut into quarters
  • 8 cherry tomatoes cut in halves
  • 1/3 cup of grated Mozzarella cheese
  • A handful of basil leaves to decorate

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 190°C. Place the pita bread on pizza pan, coat evenly with pasta sauce.
  2. Top with onion, capsicum and pineapple, olives and cherry tomatoes. Spread cheese evenly on top and bake in the center shelf of oven.
  3. Depending on the type of your oven, it usually will take between 5 to 8 minutes to cook till golden and crisp around the edge. Take pizza out to cool a little, sprinkle basil leaves and serve immediately.

Notes... Even though it's vegetarian, you can always add more ingredients to suit your taste. A great light meal for a non-meat dinner.

  • Only thing I’ll change is leaving off the olives. Thanks for the recipe. I’d be tempted to add feta as well.

  • Home made pizza is a winner in our home too. Being able to add your own toppings, different bases, makes them healthier then store bought. And they taste just as good plus they’re cheaper

  • Homemade pizza is always a winner with the kids and vegetarian doesn’t bother them. They wouldn’t even notice if we didn’t have meat on it.


    • Yes I agree totally that the pizza is an excellent way to feed kids with more healthy ingredients that sometimes won’t be eaten by them.

  • Whilst I’m not vegetarian, I do love a vegetarian pizza. I have a friend who orders vegetarian pizza with ham, and it always makes me laugh. We agree we love the ingredients. My favourite pizza to make at home is tomato paste, baby spinach, pumpkin, feta, and mushrooms. That’s my vegetarian pizza and it’s so yum.

  • I’m a big meat eater :/ guilty but I do enjoy a few meat free meals throughout the week never had a pizza like this looks wonderful!


    • Thank you Jessica :)
      I appreciate everyone has their own choice, and the main thing is to enjoy life together with what comes within it.
      I had my fair share of meat eating up till 1990 when I decided to be a vegetarian, and in the old days it’s hard to find anything to my liking, so I developed my own eating and cooking style.

  • What a great idea! Pita bread takes up less room in the freezer too!

  • Thanks Missey Grace for sharing such a tasty easy recipe. Now I keep wholemeal pita breads in the freezer so it has become a good standby meal for us.


    • That is so good to hear, very wise of you.
      I keep a packet of them in my freezer too :)
      They are very versatile, I will show you what I use them for in the very near future.

  • Yum, yum, yum, Missy Grace. I love all your recipes.


    • I’m so thrilled to hear from you, lovely mum :)
      All my recipes are simple, light vegetarian stuff but they are full of flavors.
      One of my besties said ‘if you can’t have the rest, have the best that you deserve.’
      Don’t you agree?
