Low-Cal Pita Pizzas

Since kindergarten, pizza has always been that party food everyone will eat without complaint. 


As we get older though, it's not always the healthiest of menu options so it sort of gets kicked aside in favor of more waist-friendly choices (like this Skinny Chicken Alfredo recipe ).

Though you might find it hard to believe, you can have your pizza and eat it, too. Just think smart with your recipe like we did!

Parents and caregivers will appreciate this quick and healthier alternative pizza recipe/ And the kids, whether they usually beg for a favorite frozen pie or fresh one from the local pizzeria, will have a new go-to choice they can help make.

It's easy to customize this pizza with whatever toppings you'd like and also cuts down on carbs. Just be careful with your topping choices! Ingredients like cheese or fried chicken will negate all the other low-calorie adjustments you make.

Ingredients
  • 1 whole wheat pita
  • 1/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, steamed
  • 2 tablespoons each diced bell peppers and onions
  • 1/4 cup sliced chicken sausage
Directions

Place pita in toaster oven and heat until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Once pita is removed, turn heat up on toaster oven to “broil.”

Remove pita from toaster oven, top with sauce, mozzarella cheese, spinach, peppers, onions, and chicken sausage slices.

Place prepared pita under the broiler and allow to cook, about 4-5 minutes, until cheese is melted.
