Simple Pita Pizza

This simple and tasty pizza, built on a whole –wheat pita half rather than pizza dough, makes a great snack or meal. It’s easy and very quick to make, and high in fiber, calcium, and protein. Set out the ingredients and let your kids assemble their own personal pizzas for the perfect “I-don’t-feel-like-cooking” dinner.  Serves 1.

  • 1/2 a 6” whole-wheat pita (sliced in half around the edge, not across the middle)
  • 1 tablespoon pizza sauce
  • 5 pepperoni
  • 1 oz. grated mozzarella (about ¼ cup)
  • Basil and oregano, fresh or dried
  • Freshly-ground salt and pepper


Place the pita half on a baking sheet, cut side up. Spread with the pizza sauce, leaving about ½” of crust around the edge. Top with the pepperoni and mozzarella. Add herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Broil on high for about 3 minutes, rotating once, or until cheese is melted and lightly-browned and sauce is bubbling.  Slice into quarters and enjoy.

1 serving = 250 calories
