We can all agree that pizza is one of the best foods on the face of this planet. The soft dough and crispy crust that gently nestles a vibrant red and delicious tomato sauce in the center, topped with an endless amount of options! Many people refrain from indulging because it can be a high-calorie food. Well, we decided to take a fan favorite and turn it into something a little more healthier so you can enjoy it guilt-freeee!!!! We used a whole wheat alternative crust, low-fat cheese, and loaded it with tons of vegetables. ENJOY!!!

Serving: 1 personal pizza

Ingredients 

1 whole wheat pita

1-2 tablespoons of pizza sauce (we use Classico Tomato Basil)

1-2 tablespoons pesto (Classico has a pesto as well)

1-2 oz reduced fat mozzarella cheese

Toppings

Broccoli

Onion, diced

Bell peppers, diced

Black olives

White mushrooms

Pepperoni

Oregano

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Option #1: Place tomato sauce in center of pita and use the pesto for the crust or Option #2: Do a tomato and pesto swirl (see pictures below).
  3. Sprinkle some of the peppers and onion onto the sauce. This will allow the sauce and crust get a little more flavor.
  4. Sprinkle cheese evenly on your pizza and add toppings.
  5. Cook pizza for 15-20 minutes, or when pizza is cooked through.
