Denise’s Pita Pizza Pockets Recipe

Pita Pizza Pockets

While my kids really love pizza, they’re all very picky about their toppings and it seems like they each want something different. That’s why I love these pita pizza pockets – they’re super easy to make, the kids enjoy helping to make their own, and everybody gets exactly what they want in them.

Denise's Pita Pizza Pockets

I cut the pitas in half, cooked the sausage and assembled the other ingredients on the table in advance then called the kids in to let them help put their own pizza pockets together before I popped them in the oven. They only take a few minutes and the kids had a blast helping make their own dinner.

YUMMY!!!! My kids LOVED these!! We had them the past 2 nights. The pita pockets are like a yummy thin crust & get a little crispy if you leave them in the oven 1-2 minutes longer. I used Rosemary & Olive Oil Flat Bread and they tasted great. My 9 yr old daughters loved the flavored flat bread more than the pita. I also sprinkled a little oregano & basil on mine. This is recipe is a keeper and we will be having it again!! Thanks for sharing!!!
