Recipe “A Healthier Indian Spiced Pita Pizza”


  • 2 large pita bread or tortillas
  • 2 good tsp Masala curry paste
  • 1 good tsp tomato paste
  • 1 red skinned potato, thinly sliced
  • ½ kumara (sweet potato), thinly sliced
  • 1 red chilli, finely diced (optional)
  • 2-3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tbs shredded coconut
  • 2 tbs sultanas (raisins)
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1-2 tbs sunflower oil
  • 1 tbs fresh chopped coriander &/or mint

How to do

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/356°F

Combine the Masala curry paste with the tomato paste and spread evenly over the two pita or tortillas.

Layer each pita or tortilla with baby spinach, top with one layer of potato and kumara slices, scatter evenly with the diced chilli, coconut and sultanas and then sprinkle with the paprika and drizzle over the oil.

Place the prepared pizzas on an oven rack in the pre-heated oven and cook for 15-25 minutes. {The cooking time will depend on your own oven}

Watch the pizzas carefully and remove once the tortillas are nice and crispy, potato cooked and toppings golden.

Allow to cool slightly and sprinkle with fresh herbs before cutting into wedges to serve. Accompany with non-dairy or dairy yoghurt and chutney for a light snack. Or serve with salad for a light meal.
