I love creating ways to eat grapes besides just snacking on them!

Plus, they are healthy for us too!

All grapes—red, green and black—contain polyphenols and these polyphenols are found in every part of the grape: the skin, the flesh and the seeds.

Polyphenols promote antioxidant activity and influence cell-to-cell communications.

Numerous studies suggest that polyphenols contribute to heart health, with emerging evidence suggesting that they may also play a role in healthy aging. #GimmeAllTheGrapes

This recipe is so unique but can also be totally customized.

Variations for this recipe:

Not a fan of kale or like the idea of using kale to make a pesto? That’s ok. Try my more traditional pesto made with basil and avocado to spread on the pita bread instead!

If you are allergic to nuts, top with prosciutto and arugula.

If you feel blue cheese is too strong or just are not a fan, swap it out for pecorino cheese, mozzarella, ricotta, or feta.

One of my favorite combinations for another variation of this grape flatbread is Italian sausage, kale, feta and grapes!

You can use pita bread or naan bread. Or – make this same recipe in crostini form. Slice a French-style baguette bread and follow the same directions.

Or make the crostini with gorgonzola cheese, grapes and nut nuts!

Except for the bleu cheese, I love this combo as is. But then all your suggestions for variations sound delicious as well! GIMME ALL THE TASTY PIZZA!


Love this fresh and healthy pita pizza idea! Such a delicious recipe!


Wow, how many wonderful flavor combinations are in this pita pizza. It really is a unique pizza that I can’t wait to try. This is a great appetizer idea, but I might also just make a smaller one and have it myself.


I love kale pesto too, but I have never thought of combining it with grapes! I will have to give it a go. Thanks for sharing.
