Homemade Whole Wheat Pita Pizzas
Question: How do you get someone who loves pizza and wants to eat it at every meal to eat a healthy version of pizza that you can make in 15 minutes?Answer: Make whole wheat pita pizzas!
Servings: 4 servings
- 4 Whole wheat pita breads make sure you get one that has ~130 calories and at least 4g fiber per round
- 1/2 red onion diced
- 1 yellow pepper diced
- 2 to matoes diced
- 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese you can use up to 1/4 cup per pizza, no more than that!
- Pizza sauce I like the kind from Trader Joe’s, but any variety that has no sugar added is good
Warm your pita bread in a toaster oven or in a pan over low heat and chop your veggies
Top 1 pita bread with 1-2 Tbsp sauce, and a handful of each of the veggies (use as much as you like – the more veggies, the more fiber and nutrients are on your pizza!) I like to use a ton of veggies.
Top with 1/4 cup of cheese, or less depending on how much cheese you like (1/4 cup is about 100 calories)
Heat the pizzas in a toaster oven until the cheese melts. Alternatively, if you don’t have a toaster oven, you can heat the pizzas under a broiler at 350 degrees until the cheese melts (or in your regular oven at 350 degrees).
