A quick, healthy and easy to make pizza. Cut into strips for an after school snack.

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly!

Serves: 2


  • 2 wholemeal pitta bread
  • Cheese (of your choice)
  • Different vegetables/fruit (of your choice)
  • Handful fresh basil
  • Tomato paste (no sugar)

You will also need:

  • An apron
  • A large plastic bowl
  • A plastic cheese grater
  • A sharp knife (to use with an adult)
  • A chopping board
  • A knife
  • A baking tray


  1. Grate the cheese into a plastic bowl.Pitta Pizzas are perfect for children to help make. They can choose from a selection of healthy toppings which is a good way to encourage your child to eat a range of vegetables.
  2. Spread each pitta with tomato sauce or paste and sprinkle with grated cheese.
  3. Chop your chosen vegetables into small pieces.
  4. Arrange the different vegetables on top.
  5. Place pittas on baking tray and cook for about 15 minutes at 200ºC.
  6. Wash and chop/tear basil into pieces and sprinkle on top.
  7. Cut into half or slices.
Vegetables can be what ever you fancy. The more colourful the toppings, the more healthy! Note for parents - pitta breads can be frozen and so can a home made tomato sauce. This can then be a quick snack for children to share putting together, encouraging them to choose healthy toppings. Most children will enjoy selecting toppings to create their individual pizza snack. Parents – If you try this recipe with your child, I’d love to hear from you.

  2. These look delicious! I wonder if this might be what we have for lunch today! I love the idea of using pitta bread instead of a pizza base, healthy and easy for kids to help make too. Thanks for the excellent idea!

    1. They are simple for young children to cook and so easy to adapt to use vegetables that the children like or haven’t yet tried. Thanks for hosting 🙂

  4. I’m not a huge fan of pitta bread. I always find it a bit dry, but these look so simple that I might have to get the kids to do them! (And use a slice of bread for pizza for me 😉 )

  5. Love pizza pizzas we use them for Easter egg pizzas!

    Such a lovely cooking activity for children.
