5 Ingredient Pizza - Make pizza night easier and quicker than a run for takeout with this five-ingredient recipe.

We have pizza about once a week. It’s one of our family’s favorite “fun foods” and a great way for us to enter the weekend. While I usually make the pizza dough from scratch, there are some days when I just don’t wanna.

Instead of buying take-out or frozen pizza, I’ve found a wonderful alternative that works very well for us and one that only calls for five ingredients. While I sourced the items pictured from three separate stores, you could easily buy it all at Trader Joe’s. Pita breads stand in for crust, and the sauce is a mashup of canned tomato sauce and a seasoning blend.

I set this recipe up as a pizza bar. My kids have varying ideas of what constitutes “enough” toppings. Since the pitas are rather personal size, they can make their own without any trouble.

This stuff, Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute, is pretty magical. The ingredients list is very similar to my recipe for Jamie’s Spice Mix. If you don’t do TJ’s, just mix up a batch of Jamie’s Spice Mix. I’ve done it both ways and love it. The prepackaged seasoning is just a nice little shortcut when you have a bad case of I just don’t wanna.

Prepping this meal takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. It’s almost like getting take-out, but it tastes better and you don’t have to get into the car. Simple layer on the toppings and bake. Easy pizza.

  1. Yum. We did this with friends today, except used tortillas. I actually liked it better than I anticipated. It was an easy mix up from the normal pizza. We also do pizzas often. I typically make a dough. Everyone gets their own personal pizza size. Then, anything in the fridge and cupboards is fair game. It’s great for using leftovers. We have gotten some yummy concoctions. Leftovers are lunch on Saturdays!

  2. You have gotten me hooked on that 21 spice blend. I made a dip this weekend with drained yogurt, finely chopped kale that I had sauteed in garlic, sea salt and a heaping dose of the 21 spice blend. Oh. My. Stars. It was good. Better than spinach dip any day!!

    Looking forward to hearing you on Coffee Table Conversations. Can I just tell you? I am loving every part of that bundle deal: the ebooks, the extra giveaways and the CTC have been amazing. Just amazing. I saw it and purchased it through your site and it was the best $$ I have spent in a long time.

    Happy Monday Jessica.

  3. I, too, bought some 21 Seasoning Salute because I saw it recommended here. I’ve been using it for roasted vegetables. Is it Trader Joe’s version of Mrs. Dash or something like that? In any event, thank you for telling us about it.

  4. Can not take it! I am in Canada and soooo missing my visits to Trader Joe’s! Sad how I enjoy your grocery posts just to get a glimpse of all the cool products you buy there …

  5. Yum! I’d forgotten about the pita pizza magic – thanks for the reminder! Great for small families, too.

    I used to do pita pizzas in the toaster oven for breakfast…skipped the tomato sauce, added chopped apples or raisins, some maple drizzle and cheddar.

  6. Thanks for the simple, quick, and yummy looking idea!

  7. That looks great, thanks! My husband mastered your pizza recipe a few winters ago when our twins were infants and now all four children love it. He makes it frequently during his “off season”. In the meantime, this recipe is definitely doable! I will be near a Trader Joe’s on our spring break next week and will definitely pick up some tomato sauce and spice mix.
