This may sound weird, maybe it's because I'm from the south, but my mom always used biscuit dough and made a dent in the middle with a glass and filled it up with stuff then baked them.  Not very good for you...but so good! Cheesy

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.

There is a little "hole in the wall" type of pita bakery in my town, and it is run by a Mediterranean family. They make the best pitas in the world! We always try to go early (they close at like 8 in the morning!) and get them hot out of the oven!

I always sprinkle lots of basil(fresh or dried) on the sauce before I put the cheese on. It makes it smell and taste really good.
My favorite type is just basil, sauce, mozzarella, and mushrooms.

Also, I make like a "pan pizza" type thing, where I actually cook the pita pizza on a skillet on the stove. But you absolutely have to coat both sides of the pita with olive oil first for this one though lol

Smiley I love making my own dough in the bread maker! And my most recent creation was making a chicken satay (just used a jar and 2 chicken breast fillets) and chucked it on the pizza, along with a truckload of pizza cheese... yuuuuuuuummmm

Yum!  Thanks for posting this thread.  I never think about making pizzas at home and we ended up eating them all week on whole wheat pitas.

Here are some combos we had:

"Traditional" pizza with tomato sauce, bacon, onions and pineapple.
Pesto chicken pizzas topped with a mile high mound of wilted spinach as soon as they came out of the oven.
Artichoke and feta pizza with pesto sauce.
And the OMG so good and so bad pizza was topped with a tomato cream sauce, bacon, onions, and bleu cheese.

I've done the pitas too, they're delicious!  I usually spray mine with olive oil on both sides, lightly salt and pepper.  Then I lay down a fresh basil leaf topped with halved or quartered grape tomatoes and sprinkle of parmesan mmmm!

I've always had a problem with pitas drying out and being a bit tough...I've never tried olive oil, though, does that help?

I have had crazy amounts of success with French bread from the grocery store bakery, and I make Mexican pizza with tortillas...using "fiesta blend" cheese, salsa, and chicken or beef.  Very yummy.  You can also do two tortillas, and layer beans between them, then top with the pizza stuff.  Equally yummy.

I didnt read all the post so i dont know if someone metioned this but my best tip is:
Use kitchen scissors to cut pita pizzas if you dont have a pizza cutter. Works great!

i used naan bread. i've used a garlic naan and a plain.
and tortilla's rock for crispy awesome pizza

my fav pita pizza is alfredo sauce, quick fried green and red peppers and roasted garlic with chedder cheese on top.

pineapple and chicken is good with any sauce.
