Soft, whole wheat pitas topped with melted cheese and sheet-pan fajita chicken and vegetables make for healthy and easy weeknight pizzas that the whole family will love!
I received free samples of Toufayan Pita mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Toufayan Bakeries and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.
I’m always on the lookout for ways to make weeknight dinners easier without compromising flavor, so I was especially excited when Recipe Redux members were invited to participate in Toufayan Bakeries’ recipe challenge.
Toufayan Bakeries is a family-owned baker in the U.S. that turns out more than 100 delicious products across the nation – in fact it’s the largest pita company in the U.S.! Among these products are 8 varieties of pita: White, Multi Grain, Sprouted Grain, Low Carb, Oat Bran, Savory Garlic, Sweet Onion, and Whole Wheat. Regardless of what flavor you choose, all products are made using old-world recipes with only top quality, wholesome ingredients and are naturally cholesterol and trans fat-free.

For these fajita pita pizzas, I used the Low Carb pitas, which are made from fiber-rich whole wheat flour and contain just 16 grams of carbohydrate per pita with 7 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein. These pitas combined with lean chicken and shredded cheese pack these pizzas with a serious protein punch, helping you to stay full for hours afterwards.
To make these pizzas we first need to cook our fajita chicken and vegetables. One of my favorite dinner short-cuts is to make sheet pan meals. Simple place chicken strips and any vegetables you like on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with cumin and chili powder then cook everything at once for 20-25 minutes. For those of you who like to meal prep, you can make the chicken and vegetables ahead of time then just assemble the pita pizzas throughout the week.
Keeping with the Mexican-inspired cuisine, these pita pizzas are first topped with salsa, which provide an extra dose of veggies. Next, sprinkle over shredded Mexican cheese then load each pita up with the cooked fajita chicken and vegetables.
Initially I thought a serving would be 2 pita pizzas, but I was completely satisfied and full after just one. It was a bonus as I then had leftover fajita pita pizza slices in the fridge for a healthy snack later in the day 😉
So here’s a toast to pita pizzas, my new favorite weeknight dinner!

These look delicious and those veggies are on point! Definitely trying this one out.
Let me know what you think! Thanks Brynn
Three of my favorites, pizza, broccoli and fajitas! Loving this combo!
It’s super tasty, you’ll have to give it a try 😉 Thanks Autumn!
Ummm, were you on Top Chef? Or are those Top Chef oven mitts??!
That’d be so cool if I had been, but sadly no. My mother-in-law bought us them a few years ago (they’re awesome because they stick to the fridge).
This is a great easy, healthy meal! And so colorful and tasty looking! I love the broccoli on there!
Thanks Sonali! Broccoli is one of my favorite pizza toppings, I just couldn’t resist adding it 🙂
Great recipe idea! Sounds delicious!
I always say “yes” to pizza and these look so yummy! Love the broccoli on there!!!
Thanks Sara! I know it’s not a traditional fajita veggie, but my stomach can’t handle onions and our neighborhood Mexican restaurant once served broccoli in their fajitas and I just fell in love with the addition.
Perfect base for pizzas and I love the fajita twist you got going on!
They really do work great as mini pizzas! Thanks Deanna 🙂
Great way to get all the veggies, protein and whole grains. I love this idea and the recipe title flow!
Thanks I was making fajitas tonight and this will be a great and easy way!
Perfect timing! Hope you and Jeff enjoy 🙂
Wow these are gorgeous! I LOVE easy healthy meals like this! YUM!
Love that everything is baked on a sheet pan. Quick dinner!
Thanks Serena! Yes, quick to cook and clean up 😉
