Wheat Pita Pizza

Make these ahead of time for a quick pizza fix (and to save time), or make just one and skip the freezing part.

Ingredients:

  • Wheat Pita Bread
  • Pasta sauce (you pick!)
  • Cheese
  • Any toppings you’d like (pepperoni, banana pepper rings, onions, etc.)

Instructions:

  1. Take a cookie sheet and line with wax or parchment paper.  Place wheat pita bread on the paper.
  2. Take note of the serving size of the pasta sauce.  I found by putting 1/4 cup of pasta sauce on the bread was enough for me.  If it’s 1/2 cup for the serving, that’s half the calories if you use 1/4 cup.  Like meat?  Use Italian Sausage and Garlic sauce by Prego… skip the pepperoni to save on calories.  Not worry about those?  Add Pepperoni. 🙂  Spread sauce on bread.
  3. Add toppings.  In my picture, I have pepperoni and banana peppers.
  4. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  5. Freeze overnight.  Don’t want to freeze them?  Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds (more or less depending on your microwave).
  6. The next morning, put pizzas in a ziploc bag.  I put mine in gallon freezer bags so it would hold 3 pizzas.
  7. Ready to eat one?  No need to thaw.  Put 1 in microwave for 2 minutes, 30 seconds.  Please note that there will probably be condensation on the plate.  Take a paper towel on the bottom to dab the water up so it doesn’t make the bread soggy.  The first time I ate one, I did not cut it… the following ones I did because it makes it easier to eat.
  8. I shouldn’t have to say this, but will.. be careful, it will be hot when you are done heating it up in the microwave.
