10 Minute Whole Wheat Pita Pizzas

This recipe truly takes just 10 minutes and has only 3 key ingredients - talk about fast, easy, healthy, and delicious. It's also a great recipe for young chefs. Quick clean up too.


- Whole wheat mini pitas (our Trader Joe's always carries these)

- Pizza sauce (you can add nutritional value by stirring in pureed pumpkin at a ratio of 3:1 [sauce:pumpkin] and it won't affect taste or consistency)

- Shredded mozzarella

Set your oven to low broil.
1. Use a butter knife to halve the pitas so that each pita "pocket" becomes two pita "discs". Lay the discs rough side up on an ungreased baking sheet.

2. Smear on pizza sauce to taste

3. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella to taste

4. Option - top mozzarella with whatever you like. The ones I made tonight (pictured) have a bit of shredded basil from my garden on top. Customize for each member of the family! I love "old man" toppings like green olives and artichoke hearts. My husband takes his Kevin McCallister style (plain cheese). And Otto digs chopped veggies added to almost anything.

5. Broil until the cheese starts to brown (about 5 minutes).

Done! In the image pictured I posed a Thomas the Tank Engine in the pan so you can see just how bite-sized the finished pizzas will be.

If you want to add another 2 minutes to the recipe you can pre-toast the pita discs under low broil for about 2 minutes before adding sauce and cheese. this will guarantee you a crunchier "crust" for your pita pizzas. But honestly I never do it that way. They're definitely not soggy if you skip this step.
