Recipe Tag - Pita Pizza

Julie tagged me to share a recipe.
I'm not one to cook much more than pasta or go full out with huge pans of lasagna, both of which don't really come from a recipe.
This is one that has been on my radar to try out however.



Get your pizza fix with this guilt-free personal pie. It's cheesy, nutritious (only 279 calories!) and won't take you more than 12 minutes to make!

Serves 1

1 tsp olive oil
1 6-inch whole-wheat pita
1/4 cup canned, diced tomatoes
1 basil leaf
1/4 cup torn fresh spinach leaves
1/4 cup roasted red peppers
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella

Drizzle olive oil over pita. Mix tomatoes and basil and spread over pita. Add spinach leaves. Layer peppers over the spinach and top with mozzarella. Broil 4 minutes or until cheese melts.

I'm sure any preferred toppings would work on the pita bread crust so get creative with these personal pizzas! Let me know when you try it and I'll do the same.

I tag Wendy, Kristina, Megan, Bethea and Julianna.

I don't cook! Once in a while I will bake. I'll see if I can find the recipe I used to make cupcakes for Thanksgiving.
