Whole Wheat Pita Pizzas – A great place to put garden fresh veggies!


I grow a lot of vegetables. A LOT. I am always looking for ways to use them in different ways. One of my favorites lately has been whole wheat pita pizzas. I found a basic recipe and I have been making these over and over. I add all kinds of home-grown veggies like eggplant, peppers,onions, summer squash and tomatoes (just to name a few.) I have even topped them with leftover roasted vegetables like turnips, beets and carrots. These little individual pizzas are a great way to ge more veggies into your life. Everyone loves pizza, right?


Whenever I need a healthy dinner that is ready in a hurry, my go to meal is Whole Wheat Pita Pizzas. My toaster oven warms up quickly; I assemble the pizza while that's happening. A quick eight minute baking time and I have a nutritious version of pizza that is ready quicker than you can get delivery. They are better for you than delivery too. Here are my recipes for a basic, no frills whole wheat pita pizza and a Hawaiian whole wheat pita pizza. Enjoy!

Below are the amounts you will need for one whole wheat pita pizza; just multiply by the number of pizzas you want to make.

What You Need For Each Basic Whole Wheat Pita Pizza

1 whole wheat pita

3 tablespoons of your favorite jarred or homemade pasta sauce

1/4 cup of shredded fontina or other good melting cheese

Directions

Heat your toaster oven to 475 degrees F, with a baking sheet in the oven.

Evenly spread the pasta sauce over the whole wheat pita, leaving 1/4 inch around the edges dry. Evenly spread the shredded cheese over the sauce. Once the toaster oven has reached 475 degrees F, place the pita pizza (or pizzas) on the hot baking sheet. Baking on a heated sheet or pan ensures a crispy crust on your whole wheat pita pizza. Bake for 8 minutes. Let the whole wheat pita pizzas cool slightly before slicing.

That is all you need for a basic whole wheat pita pizza, but the beauty of this recipe is in its versatility. You can add just about any chopped vegetable or cooked meat to the pita before adding the cheese. I also like to sprinkle dried basil, oregano and thyme over the cheese before baking. One of my favorite versions of the pita pizza is the Hawaiian.

What You Need For Each Whole Wheat Hawaiian Pita Pizza

1 whole wheat pita

3 tablespoons of jarred barbeque sauce

1/4 cup of diced pineapple

2 tablespoons of diced ham (fully cooked)

1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella, or other good melting cheese

Directions

Heat your toaster oven to 475 degrees F, with a baking sheet in the oven.

Evenly spread the barbeque sauce over the whole wheat pita, leaving 1/4 inch around the edges dry. Sprinkle the ham and pineapple over the top, then evenly spread the shredded cheese over that. Once the toaster oven has reached 475 degrees F, place the pita pizza (or pizzas) on the hot baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Let the pita pizzas cool slightly before slicing.
