This is a tasty snack with low calories, whole wheat, plenty of veggies, and lots of healthy fat (depending on how you make it).   The base is simple (and cheap), a whole wheat Joseph’s Pita (you can buy 6 in a package for $2.79 at Wal-mart).   Their whole wheat pita has a well-balanced nutritional content (see image below).  From there the steps are simple.

Joseph's Whole Wheat Pita, Nutritional Information

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  2. Instead of tomato sauce, brush some olive oil on to the pita(s)
  3. lightly cover in shredded 2% mozzarella or pepper jack
  4. Add veggies to desired amount (tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, spinach,  etc.)
  5. Add meat to desired amount (ground turkey, chicken breast, bacon, etc.)
  6. Add spices to desired amount (I like a mixture of oregano, basic, and salt)
  7. Cook for 5-8 minutes, depending on your oven.

When ready to serve you can slice it up like a regular mini-pizza or you can fold it over and eat it as a pita pizza pocket.  Either way it is delicious.  Enjoy.
