Mini Puttanesca Pizzas

Inspired by Italy's spaghetti alla puttanesca, Mini Puttanesca Pizzas bring tomatoes, briny capers, kalamata olives, and salty anchovies to pitas for personal pizza perfection.


  • 1 Pita bread
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 (or more) fillets of King Oscar's Flat Fillet Anchovies, You can dice them and spread them over your pie, or simply place them down in strips. Whatever you fancy.
  • 2 grape tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 pitted kalamata olives, sliced
  • 1 tsp drained capers
  • Fresh chopped parsley or basil, for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Place your pita on a baking sheet; evenly coat with sauce and cheese. Then sprinkle on the rest of your toppings.
  • Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes, or until the pita starts to turn a golden hue and your cheese starts to bubble.
  • When done, let it sit for about 3-5 minutes to cool down (no one likes pizza burn). Garnish with freshly chopped herbs if desired. Serve with a crisp glass of white wine :)


I've written the recipe for one pita, but let's not kid anyone — I often eat two to myself. Use the recipe portions as a guideline :)
