Ingredients
  1. 12 Whole wheat small pita breads
  2. 2 red onions diced
  3. 1 red, yellow, and green pepper diced
  4. 3 medium tomatoes diced
  5. 2.5 cups of shredded partly skim mozzarella cheese
  6. 2 cups washed spinach
  7. 1.5 cups of low sodium pizza sauce or tomato sauce
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350o
  2. Place peppers and tomato in a colander; rinse and scrub vegetables to clean with cool water. Once peppers and tomato are cleaned; place spinach in colander. Rinse spinach with cool water. Dry spinach using a clean tea-towel.
  3. Using cutting board and knife dice onion, peppers, and tomato. Once done chopping the vegetables place dirty knives beside the sink. Place chopped vegetable into separate bowls.
  4. Shred cheese onto plate using cheese grater.
  5. Place whole wheat pita bread on baking sheet.
  6. Top each pita bread with 1-2 Tbsp sauce and a handful of each of the vegetables. Be creative and make a design. Remember the more color you have on your pizza the more fibre and nutrients your pita pizza will have.
  7. Top each pita with cheese (~1/4 cup)
  8. Bake in pre-heated oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese starts to melt
  9. Using oven mitts carefully remove pita pizza from baking sheet to a plate.
  10. Once the pita pizzas are slightly cooled cut each pita pizza into 4 and enjoy!
Notes
  1. We chose to make our own pizza sauce using plain tomato sauce with saute onion and a teaspoon each of oregano and thyme for flavour. This reduces a lot of sodium from prepared sauces. A versatile recipe to add or replace vegetables of your choice.
