Pick Your Pocket- Fakin’ Bacon Pita Pizzas

Forgo the pocket for an extra crispy, thin pizza!

The pita pocket makes a delicious thin crust!

When you crave a personal pizza, you don’t have to rely on the local pizza chain anymore! Whole wheat pita pockets make instant crusts that are nutritious and delicious. If your family rarely agrees on toppings, these are super easy to individualize. Great fun for kids to make their own!

These two varieties were a hit in my house. All the joy of bacon- vegan style!

Smoky Tempeh Pesto Spiced Pizza

Ezekiel 4:9 Whole Grain Pocket Bread
Organic Smoky Tempeh Strips
Simply Organic Sweet Basil Pesto packet
Olive oil
Onion, diced
Jar of sliced pimentos
Can chopped black olives
Daiya cheddar cheese shreds

Preheat oven to 425F. Follow package directions on Simply Organic Sweet Basil Pesto packet except use 1/2 the oil. Sauté diced onion in a few tablespoons of the prepared sauce until soft. Add in the smoky tempeh strips and coat with additional sauce. Cook only until heated through.

Brush liberally the surface of pita pockets with prepared sauce. Layer tempeh, black olives, cheddar shreds and pimento on top.

Bake 15 minutes on 425F and then broil 2 minutes on high watching carefully.

Served with fresh garden salad for a simple and complete meal.

Canadian Bacon & Garlic Mini Pizza

Loaded with toppings without all the bread of a traditional pizza!

Ezekiel 4:9 Whole Grain Pocket Bread
Yves Meatless Canadian Bacon
Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce
Fresh garlic, minced
1 jar sliced mushrooms
Sliced black olives
Daiya mozzarella cheese shreds
Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 425F. Spoon sauce over pita pockets and layer with remaining ingredients. Top with the cheese shreds and Italian seasoning. Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to rest once removed from oven before slicing. (I recommend using kitchen shears).

The fresh garlic is the “WOW” ingredient:)

Consider pocket pizzas for a children’s birthday party or movie night with the family! Much quicker and MUCH healthier than pizza delivery no matter how you slice it!
