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)
