Want to know the easiest way to make Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza? Use gluten-free pita as your crust! I’m very impressed with how crispy and perfect pita crust is – you MUST try it!!
Using pita as crust is an easy and clever way to make individual pizzas. Now everyone can have their desired toppings – pita personal pizza party anyone?!
Below are examples of pita pizzas that I recently made. Use your imagination, and whatever is in your refrigerator and pantry, to make your own creations. Making personal pizzas is a good way to use up leftovers!
Did I mention how easy it is to throw these together? Perfect for little ones that want to help in the kitchen. 🙂
Sami’s Bakery Millet and Flax Pita Pockets
I use Sami’s Bakery Millet and Flax Pita Pockets when making this recipe; however, they cannot be considered truly gluten-free because, according to their label, “they are manufactured in a facility that processes wheat gluten.“ If you have a true gluten allergy, then use a different brand that you trust to be gluten-free.
- Coat pita with pesto, cashew cheese ricotta, or pizza sauce
- Arrange toppings
To make traditional tomato sauce pizza, simmer marinara sauce until some of the moisture evaporates and the sauce thickens. Alternatively, buy jarred pizza sauce.
Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza
- pizza stone, cast iron pizza pan, or baking sheet
- 1 gluten-free pita pocket
- 1/4 cup pizza sauce, pesto, or cashew cheese ricotta
- Toppings of your choice
- Preheat the oven to 500ºFIf using a pizza stone or cast iron pizza pan, preheat the stone/pan while preheating the oven.
- Spread pesto, ricotta, or tomato sauce onto the pita.
- Arrange your choice of toppings.
- Bake for about 5 minutes on preheated pizza stone or preheated cast iron pizza pan – or until the pita is crispy. If necessary, bake the pizza on other baking sheet/pan.
- If using Miyoko’s Vegan Mozzarella, put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes to make it easier to shred.
- Since the pizza is only baked for 5 minutes, the shredded Miyoko’s Mozzarella may not melt; broiling the pizza briefly will help the cheese melt.
- If you decide to use spinach as a topping, wilt it first in a pan with a bit of water. Season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with a bit of olive oil if desired.
