Easy-Peasy Pitta Pizzas

Hi guys! I'm back with another yummy recipe for you to sink your teeth into. It's silly to even call this a recipe really, but since I've been eating more healthily and trying to get fitter with the 30 Day Shred (post for that coming soon!) I've found some awesome tricks to lower calorie intake but allow me to eat what I like. This "recipe" is so simple, and you honestly won't regret attempting it.

What you need to make 4 pitta pizzas:
2 white or wholemeal pitta breads 
4 teaspoons of tomato puree
Grated cheddar cheese
Mozzarella cheese
Lean meats
Spinach leaves
Dried mixed herbs for garnish

This could serve 2 people, or just yourself if you're starving.
First, using a sharp bread knife, cut your pitta breads in half lengthways so you have 4 separate pizza bases. Place them on either a baking tray or a griddle, depending on whether you want to bake or grill them. I prefer to grill them, because all you're really doing is melting the cheese and toasting the pitta bread. Stick the bases under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes to prevent the bottom getting soggy when the toppings are on. 
Once toasted, spread a teaspoon of tomato puree on each base - you really don't need a lot as it's quite rich but still gives you a nice tomato flavour. Also, avoid using tomato ketchup for this part, just because it's way too watery and won't taste as good. Next, layer each base with your desired toppings and stick them back under the grill or in the oven for 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and those amazing smells permeate your kitchen. 

While they're still hot, sprinkle a tiny amount of dried mixed herbs on top to garnish. Dried varieties of herbs can be crazy strong so don't ruin it with a huge pinch of the stuff.
And there you have it! Pitta pizza!

You can choose to top your pizzas with anything that you like, I just love a meat feast. It may not be the same as a large Domino's but I can bet you that it's at least a quarter of the calories and still super filling.

Depending on your toppings, each pizza is about 120-180 calories each. For this recipe, the pizzas amount to 600 calories altogether, which for four of them is pretty great for a dinner. You can eat all of them and not feel guilty if you so wish, or have two for around 300 calories!

Hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you attempt them!
