Quickie Meals: Mini Pitta Pizza

I am a junkie for pizza! Unfortunately I cannot eat it as much as I want but I am always looking for ways to make it healthy and delicious!! I made this recipe on a whim, combining my love for pittas and pizza! These pizzas are perfect for lunch or dinner as well as a perfect snack for a girl's night in or a party!! You can also make the sauce yourself if you want to be really gourmet!!
  • 400g tin of tomatoes
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • a little chopped onion
  • tomato puree
pizza sauce cooking
For the sauce, sauté 2 chopped cloves of garlic and a little chopped onion (2 or 3 tablespoons maybe) for a few minutes. Then add a tin of tomatoes and reduce it down to a paste sort of mixture – low heat for about 15 minutes – you don’t want it too watery or it will make the pizza base soggy.
1 pack mini pitas
Pizza sauce- sauce above or pizza sauce- Whole Foods makes a great sauce. I also love Rao's Arrabiata Pasta Sauce- this gives Pizza a great bite!!!
1 pack 2% low fat Mozzerella shredded cheese or fresh 2% mozzerella (this works if you like chunks of cheese rather then the shredded cheese!)
1 Sliced whole tomato (optional). You can also us 1 cup chopped Grape Tomatoes
1 c chopped spinach (fresh is best but if you want easier than frozen spinach is just as good)
How to:
Take mini pitas and spoon sauce on each. Layer spinach and cheese on top of pita and cover with tomatoes. Pop the pitas on a baking tray and cook at 350 for 10 min or until cheese is melted!
You can also add pepperoni or little bits of sausage if you like!!
