Fit Friday: Pita Pizza

I absolutely love pizza, so when trying to eat healthy it's one of those things that I just have to have. So I've made a healthy (super easy!) twist to your traditional pizza.

    What you'll need:
  • Whole wheat pita bread
  • Pizza sauce. You can get it bottled, but it's super easy to make:
    • 1  -14.5 oz can Italian Stewed Tomatoes
    • 1 small can tomato paste
    • 1 t sugar
    • 1 t dried oregano
    • 1 t dried basil
    • 1/2 t garlic powder
    • 1/2 t salt
    • 1/2 t lemon juice
    • pinch red pepper flakes
  • Blend until smooth!
  • Peppers, Zucchini, mushrooms, really any vegetables you want
  • Fresh basil
  • Mozerella
  • Roast Chicken breast, or spicy turkey pepporoni (Or without anything to make it vegetarian)
  •

To Cook:  
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Spread pizza sauce (about 2-3 tbl spoons, depending on size of pita) on the pita
Cut up vegetables into small pieces, if you're having meat place this on pita first, Spread veggies over the entire crust
Spread shredded mozzarella on top (as much or as little as you like, I put less on to keep it healthier)
Top with fresh basil and cook for 15-20 minutes or until cheese browns
Let cool, cut and enjoy (Best enjoyed with a glass of red wine)
