Gluten Free Pitta Pizza Pockets

Ok, so it's a bit of a mouthful to say but that's what they are and they're a great light(ish) lunch or a snack. I used Asda pitta breads, they were a bit of a nightmare to cut open and load but that wasn't too much of a surprise, we are talking gluten free after all.

I can make these better but this was lunch after food shopping, I'm always really hungry after that and so it was a bit of a quick experiment. Worked out great though.


Gluten Free Pitta Bread
Tomato Puree
Fresh Basil
Cheese (I used Gouda)
Smoked Bacon
1 small Onion


  1. Cut the pitta bread around the side to make a pocket
  2. Fry or grill the onion and bacon
  3. Cut the bacon up into bite sized pieces (we also removed the fat)
  4. Spread a small amount of tomato puree onto the inside of the pitta (we also did this with fresh basil paste but I'd prefer to use leaves)
  5. Put the bacon, onion and cheese into the pocket
  6. Grill, or use a dry frying pan until cheese has melted
I've not been specific with ingredient quantities because this isn't something that needs to be structured, anything goes really. We used 3 pitta breads, 3 bacon rashers and a fair bit of cheese, we ended up cutting the pittas in half and in the end that's all I could manage. One half. It was very filling for me but then I have a really small appetite and eat lots of small things throughout the day instead of big meals.

Again, this was something that was cooked on the George Foreman grill, I just closed the lid waited a couple of minutes and bam, Pitta Pizza Pockets with oozing melted cheese done!
