Pick Your Pizza

5 10 2009

As promised in my earlier blog post today, here are the ‘assembly instructions’ for building a super-fast, super-tasty, super-healthy Personal Pita Pizza!  For this recipe, I’m rolling with a Mediterranean/vegetarian feel on mine, while for MSP likes a BBQ Chicken flavor. 

Start with whole wheat pita bread.  I chose Food for Life 7 grain.

I prefer a thinner crust, so I slice mine through the middle into two circles.  (MSP prefers his ‘crust’ a bit thicker so for his I use a whole pita pocket).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper if you like easy clean up as I do.  🙂

My veggie pizzas are on the right, MSP’s meaty ones are on the left.  I smear mine with extra virgin olive oil and minced garlic.  MSP’s side shows a layer of BBQ sauce, a layer of 2% Italian Three Cheese, and shredded rotisserie chicken.

Next on my vegetarian side, I sprinkled a coating of nutritional yeast and then added thin slices of heirloom tomatoes.  MSP’s assembly is now complete on the left after having added fresh chopped cilantro. (If you like red onion on your BBQ Chicken Pizza, add that too!)

Next, to my side I add zuchinni ribbons (using a potato peeler), kalamata olives pieces, sundried tomatoes, red pepper flakes (for heat!) and a very LIGHT sprinkling of the 2% Italian Three Cheese blend.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, keeping an eye on them to be sure your ‘crust’ doesn’t burn.  Plate and enjoy!  Buon appetito!

Serve with a HUGE salad for best results.  😉

MMMMMMM I love those kinds of pizzas…
so open to possibilities!

Hmmm what does being fit mean to me? I guess it means, feeling good and having the stamina and strenght I need to do the things that I want.
