Last week my boyfriend and I were in the mood for pizza … but I particularly wanted a lighter pizza. Since we had some leftover pita bread from a local Lebanese bakery I decided pita bread pizzas were in order. So that’s exactly what I whipped up for us. Since the bread is thinner than your average grocery store pita bread, the crust becomes a thin and crispy crust. The pita is pretty large in size, so it makes the illusion of a small/medium sized pizza.
If you don’t have homemade pita bread available in your area, you can substitute using tortillas, thin crust pizza shells (Biboli or Archer Farms brand – but these will make multiple serving pizzas), or Flat Out thins.
I used a whole pita, ¼ cup Ragu Robusto spaghetti sauce, ¼ cup fat free mozzarella, 3 slices of Hormel turkey pepperoni (diced), ¼ cup Jimmy Dean turkey sausage crumbles, and 4 slices of bell peppers diced.
It was perfect, filling and delicious. The greatest part is the whole pizza was only 7 points plus values!
Do you like making lighter versions of pizza at home?
