Low Carb Pita Pizza

Low Carb Pita Pizza

Sometimes you just want a pizza. Domino’s and Pizza Hut is out but you can make your own using some low carb, flax based pitas! I’m normally against fake breads but it was Saturday afternoon at lunch and we had absolutely nothing to eat. Joseph’s Low Carb Pita’s have 4 net carbs per pita, and if you split them in half for one pizza you get 2 net carbs per pizza.

Finished Pita PizzaHere’s the finished pita pizza!

Pita BreadStart by taking a low carb pita and cutting it in half lengthwise and place them on a foil lined sheet.

Sauced Pita BreadSpread some sauce on the pita.  I used Rao’s Tomato Basil Sauce which is the lowest I’ve ever seen.  Its 3 net carbs per serving and pretty tasty.

Cheese up your pitaThe next step is cheese.  You can use any type you want but I went with cheddar because that’s what I had on hand.

Roasted Red PeppersFor toppings, the sky is the limit.  I had some roasted red peppers that come in a jar so I sliced some up and threw them on there.

Roasted Red PeppersThey kind of look like worms but ignore that part!

Pita Pizza with PepperoniAdd some pepperoni.

Finished Pita PizzaAnd you’re all done!  These cook up super fast cause of the thin pita crust.

  1. We don’t have these low carb pitas in Australia. Any ideas on how to DIY them?

  2. Josephs makes the BEST pita bread. Perfect for dieters or diabetics.

    I made quesadillas, pizzas and grilled cheese sandwiches. They have large pitas and small ones.

  3. What I use is Walden farms Pasta sauce,0 calories/carbs
    I hit it with a lot of italian seasons/garlic etc
