These Thai Vegetable Pita Pizzas only take 30 minutes and will add tons of flavor to your weeknight dinner!
I don’t know who came up with the rule that February could only have 28 days, but I’m just ok with it. As if the days don’t go by too quickly already, we have to now just lose 2 of them? But, I guess it isn’t all bad because that means that it’s 30 Minute Thursday! 30 Minute Thursday used to stress me out a little bit because despite how easy Rachel Ray makes it look, coming up with a meal that only takes 30 minutes to cook can be really hard!
Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the post for more delicious 30 minute dinner recipes from some awesome bloggers!
But, these days I’m trying to share much more 30 minute recipe with you guys so now I’m starting to see it as a fun challenge. And I’m really excited to share the recipe for these Easy Thai Vegetable Pita Pizzas with you because they’re really good, and who doesn’t want to eat pizza for dinner?!
My husband and I went out for pizza on one of our first dates. I let him order and when he suggested the Thai peanut pizza I secretly thought it sounded strange but was too shy to tell him that. So we got it and it turned out to be pretty amazing. We ended up eating at the pizza place so many times since then and we always got the Thai peanut pizza.
That pizza only had a few toppings and not many vegetables so I decided to re-create it for you all but add lots of delicious vegetables so it can be a pizza you feel good about eating. You could put all of these ingredients on regular pizza crust, but pita pizzas are really fun to make and you don’t have to share when you have your own little pizza 🙂Print
Easy Thai Vegetable Pita Pizzas
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 6 1x
- 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 small red pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 medium carrot, shredded
- 1 cup thinly sliced snow peas
- 1 large baby bok choy, thinly chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Red pepper flakes, to taste
- Peanut sauce, homemade or store bought (1-2 tbps for each pita)
- 6 pitas
- 6–8 tablespoons shredded cheese, I used vegan cheese
- Optional toppings: cilantro, chopped peanuts, green onion, Thai chilies
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add olive oil and onion. Saute onion for 2 minutes and then add the red pepper, snow peas, carrots, garlic powder, ground ginger, salt and red pepper flakes. Stir and cook until vegetables are just tender, about 3 minutes. Add in the bok choy, stir until it’s slightly wilted and remove from the heat.
- Place pitas on a large oven sheet and spread each one with 1-2 tablespoons peanut sauce. Top with a small amount of shredded cheese and then evenly distribute the vegetables over each pita. Bake until cheese is melted, 7-10 minutes.
- Top with optional toppings if desired.
- Prep Time: 10 mins
- Cook Time: 20 mins

Aren’t 30 minute meals the best?! I love testing new recipes that fit the bill. Easy AND delicious is the name of my game, and these pita pizzas hit the spot! Loving the thai flavors in here, Izzy! I have a feeling I would eat these all in no time!
Liz @ Floating Kitchen says
I find 30 Min Thursday hard too. I guess I’m not one for typically making quick dishes. Everything is more of a labor of love around my house. So our monthly series has been a good challenge for me. These pitas look incredible. Anything with peanut sauce! 🙂
As much as I love 30 minute meals, it feels like when 30 minute Thursday rolls around I need to scramble to come up with a new one! It’s all good though because it benefits everyone, especially me. 🙂 This pita pizzas look incredible Izzy! I love those fresh veggies and that peanut sauce!
This looks delicious! I was wondering, do you have a recipe for peanut sauce? I’d be happy to make it rather than try to find it in the store…

Thanks Tara! I don’t have one on my blog, but I did make the peanut sauce on these pizzas. I’m trying to avoid soy right now so I just mixed some peanut butter with water, garlic powder, ginger, maple syrup, and sriracha. It turned out pretty good!

YUM! I just tried pita bread for the first time ever and I’m sooo addicted, so this recipe has perfect timing!
These pizzas are beautiful, Izzy! Love the Thai flavors and all those pretty colors!

That’ s such a fun story! Is it bad that I have no idea where my husband and I went for our first real date or what I ate?? Lol. Love how quick and fun these are!
Nora | Savory Nothings says
What a cute story 🙂 And I agree… Recipes that only take 30 minutes in REAL life (aka with a kid or two clinging to my butt, haha!) are challenging to come up with! This pizza looks like a great idea for a quick meal – love all the interesting flavors going on!
Nicole @ Foodie Loves Fitness says
What a unique pizza idea! I like the idea of 30 Minute Thursdays! Most of my meals during the week tend to be 30 minutes or less to prepare, which people seem to find hard to believe. I guess the notion of a food blogger to people is someone that spends endless hours in the kitchen every single day… some days, yes, but other days, hell no! 😉

I love Thai flavours on pizza – it’s so tasty! These pita pizzas look amazing!
I am a little baffled as I only know Pita’s made out of flour…usually wheat…are these maybe made of corn? It doesn’t specify….it should be a Gluten Free recipe right? or am I mistaken? Thanks for your great stuff, yummy….

Hi Emily, I can’t quite remember what these gluten free pitas are made out of but they are from the brand Against The Grain and I found them at a natural foods store 🙂
