The Great Greek Pizza


By hungrygirl_lisa on Oct 02, 2012 10:00 AM in Recipes

 

Whole-wheat pitas are perfect for making single-serving pizzas. And this pizza's got Mediterranean flair. Opa!

 

Ingredients

1 stick light string cheese

1/2 cup thawed-from-frozen chopped spinach, squeezed dry 

2 tbsp. crumbled fat-free feta cheese  Hungry Girl Logo

1/2 tsp. crushed garlic 

1 high-fiber pita 

3 tbsp. canned crushed tomatoes 

2 thin slices red onion, rings separated and halved 

1 tbsp. sliced black olives  

4 slices plum tomato 

Dash dried oregano or 1/4 tsp. fresh oregano 

Optional seasonings: salt and black pepper 

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.   

Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)    

In a medium bowl, mix spinach, feta cheese, and garlic.   

Lay pita on the baking sheet and spread with crushed tomatoes, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with spinach-feta mixture and sprinkle with shredded string cheese. 

Top with onion, olives, and tomato, and sprinkle with oregano.  

Bake until hot and lightly browned, 10 - 12 minutes. Enjoy!

This is a first-class, super idea!  LOVE IT!  Will be putting the ingredients on my shopping list, for this week!

THANKS SO MUCH for a wonderful recipe!



You can lower the calorie/carb count by using a different pita base, like a Flat-Out wrap or La Tortilla Factory wraps! They won't be as thick or pizza-like, though.



This sounds great but you should use kalmata olives, not black. (or both)



This sounds sooo good. Shame it has 990 mg sodium, but if it can conquer my intense pizza cravings than I think it's worth it.
