Day 110 : Pita Pizza

We’ve been trying to eat a little healthier, or at least to balance out our calories for the day better lately.  Since we had take-out subs for lunch we decided some personal pita pizzas and salad would be just fine for dinner.  I came across these while browsing “healthy” recipes and thought they were such a great idea.  The recipe called for wheat pitas, but the store was out so I ended up getting white.  We also added the pepperoni and olives, but I figure even with that it was still fairly low calorie and properly portioned, which is the key!

For the marinara I picked out some tomato, basil, and garlic pasta sauce.  And like I said, I added some mini pepperoni to them as well.  You could of course take the idea and make any variety of pizza you typically eat.  The pita makes a very nice crust…. like a hand-tossed crust.
