Pita Pizza

I would be lying if I said I only had this every once in a while.  I eat a pita pizza about 5 times a week, usually for lunch.  It is inexpensive to make, doesn't take much time and is healthy.  The pitas I use are low carb and because I use pesto as a base, they are low sugar too.  Then to make them even healthier, I load it with veggies and sometimes use a little bit of shredded chicken lunch meat.  What's even better, is that this is filling.  I rarely am hungry for something else once I'm done eating.  Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to eat a pita pizza for dinner - with pesto, yellow/red/green pepper, diced onions, blue cheese & crushed red pepper.

Pita Pizza
  • 1 whole wheat pizza cut in half
  • Sauce of choice (I use pesto)
  • Choice of toppings, I used blue cheese, shredded lunch meat chicken, onions, crushed red pepper and spinach
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with tin foil.
  2. Slice pita in half (so you have two circles).  Spread on sauce of choice, sprinkle on cheese of choice and finish off with some veggies.
  3. Cook in oven for 8 minutes, or until the crust is crispy.
  4. Let cool for one minute, cut and enjoy!

What a lovely idea, we sometimes use flatbreads too. Nice choice of topping!
