Easy Veggie Pita Pizza

Tonight we made our Easy Veggie Pizza at our friend’s house.  We used to make these daily (admittedly! :)) in college for dinner–just soo delish and so fast! Although tonight our friend didn’t have our typical ingredients, it was still healthy and delicious and she said she now has a weeknight dinner that she can make in minutes! Woohoo!  Always happy to help 🙂

Easy Veggie Pita Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Whole wheat pita bread (1 pita per person– you can open up the pita and make–we left it closed in the photo here and actually had to use a non-whole wheat pita because we were at a friend’s cooking, but we always suggest using whole wheat–see why below)
  • ¼ cup low-fat shredded mozzarella (1/4 cup cheese per person)
  • ½ cup low-sodium canned tomato sauce (1/2 cup per person)
  • Peppers, mushrooms, sugar snap peas, tomatoes– or any of your favorite veggies, 1/2 cup chopped (1/2 cup per person at least!)
  • 1 cup frozen broccoli, at least (1 cup minimum per person)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Slice pita open around the diameter (you could use a whole wheat English muffin if you prefer).
  3. Spread tomato sauce on each side of open faced pita.
  4. Spread veggies on top of sauce.
  5. Top with cheese.
  6. Place in oven.
  7. Remove when cheese is bubbly.
  8. Serve with a side of steamed veggies.  Enjoy!

The whole wheat pita bread will rev your energy with its brain and muscle-fueling quality carbohydrates.  Whole grains are naturally packed with important vitamins that are necessary for your body to turn your food into energy, plus they’ve got fiber (processed grains are stripped of these goodies!)

The cheese will extend the energy boost of the whole wheat pita with its lean and satiating protein. The veggies will give you fiber to further extend the energy boost of the pita bread, plus the veggies will fight fatigue with their powerful antioxidants!
