Recipe: Pita Pan Pizza (15 mins only)

Egyptian Pita
Egyptian Pita

Dubai is all about options & variety. But in this abundance, I’ve struggled to find freshly baked pizza bases. You will find the frozen ones, but I’m not a fan. In the bakery section, what came closest was the flat, Egyptian pita bread. My only worry was if it would stand another round of baking or end up like a crisp tortilla. But how would I know without trying?


  • Pita bread (pack of 4)
  • Tandoori or Shredded chicken (or leftover tikkas or other meat)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Sliced onions, capsicum & tomatoes
  • Oregaon, Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Butter


  • Apply butter to both sides of the pita bread. Mayonnaise (plain or garlic) if you can deal with it.
  • Spread tomato ketchup on the base. You can spice it up with some mustard sauce or Tobasco.
  • Top it up with veggies, meat and Mozarella
  • Butter up a pan on medium flame and place the pizza. Cover with a lid, and let it cook for 3-5 mins until the cheese melts.
  • Tip: On your first pizza, check every 2 mins to see that base does not burn
  • Voila!
