Great option.  For an even healthier one look for the whole wheat pita.  A flour tortilla will do the same thing and you can find some lower calorie ones and some low carb tortillas as well.  They are a bit thinner than the pita so watch that they don't burn on you.
I love pita with a garbanzo bean filling. Mash a can of drained garbanzo beans, add some lemon juice, diced cucumber, diced onion, season to taste.  If you want it creamier use a processor.

Hi Niki,we do some times use the whole wheat pitas,The garbanzo beans,I make hummus and also eat that on pita bread.The low carb tortillas I make Quesadillas.You can do so much with these pitas and tortillas.I make pb&j sugar free jelly on the low carb wraps.Thanks for the garbanzo bean filling will try that some time soon.I love hummus I'm so addicted to sesame seeds.I don't know how wide spread this company is,but it is called Aladdins
Bakery it is open to the public and you can watch them make the pita bread.They charge about a third of what the stores sell them for,so I always buy about a dozen packages and freeze them.Some times I even just use lettuce leaves and wrap bacon and tomatoe slices and mayo a BLT without bread.Thanks nice talking with you.

I never thought of using pita bread this way - but it sounds like a great way to cut down on the bread in pizza.

You can also use the low-cal, low-carb tortillas and make  Helpy-Selfy Pizzas and cook them on the grill. We call them Helpy-Selfy because I empty the refrigerator and everyone puts whatever toppings they want on the tortillas. They cook up very nicely on the grill, which is great for summertime and not heating up your kitchen.

Gale, I love hummus. I make hummus in my food processor. I don't use tahini[sesame seed paste]
because that is the fattening part of hummus. I make jalapeno and cilantro hummus. I also add
garlic, onion. Instead of tahini I use a combo of garbanzo juice, fresh lime juice, extra virgin olive oil
to make it creamy. This is one of my favorite diet foods. I have it with veggies and lowfat tortilla chips.
I use 2 cans of garbanzo beans because the hubby thinks you have to have a huge amount of
hummus on each tortilla chip.

I will have to try the pizza on pita bread. Sounds great and will be good for my diet!!! Thanks for the
tips.

Great idea.  You could make individual pizzas that way.

I've used English muffins to make pizzas and have heard of using naan bread and tortillas as pizza bases.

Aladdin's is in Cleveland Ohio near the down town area,I don't know how far out they deliver or ship?I go there and they are less than half the price in the stores and hot out of the oven.I buy at least ten packages as they freeze well.We have so many wonderful things in this town.

Pita makes for a fine crust when a change is in the air. It's cool feeling the ingredients through the thin parts sometimes too.  
 Has anyone heard or seen from Preston C in the last couple of weeks? I'm starting to get concerned..

Nikki, I tried to reply to you last night but it said service unavailable, try later. Hopefully I can post
now. I am going to try your garbanzo bean filling. Haven't heard about adding cucumber but it
sounds really good. The best way for me to keep on losing weight is to have a high fiber diet. I'm
getting sick of eating the same old things and need to get more fiber and this garbanzo bean
filling sounds great. Thanks Nikki!!!!!
