Pitza!

Posted on: June 28, 2011

Ok, yeah, it’s a dumb name, but how can I resist not trying to merge the words Pita with Pizza?

So we all know those bagel bite pizzas that are in the frozen aisle. Ohhh, they’re so tempting with all their cuteness of bites of pizza and fake cheese and.. stuff…

Yeah…

Not on my watch.

These are broiled in the oven.  From start to finish they will be ready in under 10 minutes! If you want them even faster, they are GREAT in the microwave! Seriously! They’re a quick snack for me, I nuke them for about 1 minute and they’re soooooooooo good.

  • 1 package Mini whole wheat pitas, halved (I get them at Trader Joe’s, they are the TINY round ones, about 30 in a package.)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 C tomato sauce (leftover pasta sauce, as always!)
  • 8 oz cheese
  • toppings of choice such as: zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, pineapple, ham, turkey pepperoni…whatever you want!
  1. Turn oven broiler on high.
  2. Split pitas in half and place on pan.
  3. Top each pita with a spoonful of sauce, veggie toppies, and a light sprinkle of cheese (less than 1/2 ounce, about a Tablespoon, or a pinch in your fingers.)
  4. Place pan under the broiler until cheese is melty and brown (about 3-4 minutes.) MMM!
  5. Remove and let cool for a couple minutes.

Makes 6 servings. Each serving consists of 6 whole pitas or 12 pitza halves. Talk about volume!

Points Per Serving – (For 12 pitza halves) 3 Points (4 PointsPlus – Weird calculations… basically 1 WW PointsPlus for every 2 pitza halves) Calculations based upon veggies for toppings. If you add meat, add the extra points values in.

***WARNING*** These are highly addictive. They store and freeze well, not that you’ll have any left.  Also, I used a rather large baking sheet, and all the pitzas didn’t fit on it. So you might have to bake them in 2 batches.
