Ingredients

  • 4 Whole wheat pita breads make sure you get one that has ~130 calories and at least 4g fiber per round
  • ½ red onion diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper diced
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese you can use up to 1/4 cup per pizza, no more than that!
  • 8 tbsp Pizza sauce more or less as needed

Instructions

  • 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).

Notes

Top Tips For Making Pita Pizza
  • Don’t put too many toppings on the pizza, or it’s harder to eat. I recommend sticking with ¼ cup of cheese along with your other toppings. 
  • Feel free to saute veggies in a skillet with some olive oil to give them a caramelized flavor. 
  • Don’t cook the pizzas for too long, so they don’t burn. Once the cheese is melted, they are good. 
  • Let the pizza sit for a couple of minutes to cool down before you slice it. If you slice it when it's too hot, the cheese and toppings will ooze off the pita bread!
