How to make a pita pizza with shrimp and salami
Cut a pita bread in half and put the four pieces of pita on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Put all of your toppings on the outside of a pita. The outside surface of a pita is more smooth than the inside so when you add some tomato sauce on it, it will not be absorbed. This will happen when you put tomato sauce on the inside of a pita.
Cut your cherry tomatoes in small pieces as well as the olives and mushroom. For all the pita pizzas you start with adding tomato sauce on the pita.
- Shrimp version – Decorate the pita pizza shrimp version with olives, cherry tomatoes, shrimp and grated mozzarella cheese.
- Salami version – For the pita pizza salami version decorate the pizza with tapenade, olives, cherry tomatoes, mushroom, salami and the mozzarella cheese.
Pre heat your oven at 450℉/225℃ and bake the pizza between 15-20 or when the cheese is melting and bubbling. Decorate with rucola and serve while hot.

You can choose so many topping options:
- Fruit – like pineapple or avocado
