Margarita Pitas

My husband never makes requests for dinner–but the other day he asked if I would make pizzas on pita bread, so like a good little wifey I got right to it. I would never have even thought to make these, if he hadn’t of asked, and yet they were SO EASY, and delicious, I felt silly for not having discovered them much sooner!!

My hubby has this Ap on his phone which calculates calories by scanning the bar code of the food, and then entering the portion, and we found out that each of these pitas is only 200 calories, and the only fat comes from the mozzarella (which is hardly any). I could hardly believe it since they taste SO good…. and even better than most fattening pizzas i’ve had in the past! In fact, after making these, I don’t think I will make pizzas any other way. You have GOT to try these! 4 ingredients, 200 calories, and 10 minutes to make! Enough said.

4 whole wheat pitas (Orrow Wheat Italian seasoned is the best!)
1 Tbsp olive oil (for all 4 pitas)
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
2-3 plum tomatoes
Bunch fresh basil

Preheat the grill to medium-high (about 375degF)
Brush each pita with 1/4 Tbsp olive oil
Grill for 3 minutes on one side, or until you get nice, light brown grill marks

Transfer them to a tray. Top the warmed side of the pita (with grill marks) with 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese and a few slices of tomato Then put the pitas back on the grill and close the lid. It’s important to have a grill with a lid because that’s how you’ll melt the cheese… but you can also broil the cheese and tomatoes in the oven. 5 minutes will do it! Season with salt and pepper and top with fresh basilHow simple is that?

I think am going to make pita pizzas of every kind!! Next up, kalamata olives, feta cheese, red onion and cherry tomatoes. I have tons of combinations running through my mind right now. Can you tell how excited I am about this recipe??!

As usual, hope you all love it!!
