Stove Top White Pita Pizza

pita pizza

I’m fond of the use-what-you-have concept. How many times a week do you say “I have nothing to eat!” But when you look you have this and that but these. On this particular day, I was craving pizza and low on groceries.  I had no fresh tomatoes, no tomato sauce/paste, no pizza dough/flour, no fresh basil and no fresh mozzarella! I did have vegan mozzarella, that I was apprehensive about trying-turns out its not half bad.

Sitting on my couch, hungry I said, “I have nothing to eat!” I got up, scoured my refrigerator and pantry and found these ingredients! I could have turned the oven or broiler on but I wanted something fast because I was hungry and it was lunch time. Try this next time you have a pizza craving! Note: If I am being totally honest, I constantly crave pizza. I just don’t have it all of the time and I try to create healthy versions of it. Like this one! Buon Appetito!!


  • 1 drizzle olive oil
  • 1 Pita bread
  • ¼ cup Daiya Mozzarella Cheese + 1 tbsp
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 onion ring slice, divided
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced vertically (long-ways)
  • 2 tsp morajam or oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil

Note: I used oil-free sun-dried tomatoes but the ones marinated in olive oil will also work.


  1. In a small pan, over medium heat, add the olive oil and pita bread.
  2. Toast the pita for 3-5 minutes, or until golden, then flip and lower the fire.
  3. On top of the pita, sprinkle the cheese, garlic, onions, sundried tomatoes, morajam, basil then the remaining cheese in that order.
  4. Cover, still on lower, for about 10 minutes.
  5. Once the cheese is nice and melty, remove the cover then turn the fire to medium- to crispy the bottom. After about 2-3 minutes, remove, cut & serve!
