Maintenance – Tomato Basil Pita Pizza

I recently chatted with my cousin about my food choices.  He commented that it seemed like eating vegetarian was a lot of work and that there wasn’t really any quick and easy meals.  To a certain extent that is true if you are trying to eat nutritiously. It definitely takes a little more planning and preparation.  BUT….as I made this for dinner tonight I could help but think of him….it was such a quick and easy meal after a long and busy day.  This one’s for you Cuz!


This is another one of those recipes that is more of an ingredient list than anything else.  So here’s what I used.

Whole wheat pita


Pizza sauce*

Fresh spinach

Sliced tomatoes

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

Fresh Basil

Spread a little pesto on the pita bread.  Then arrange a handful of spinach to cover the pita.  Top the spinach with a little pizza sauce, sliced tomatoes, cheese and basil.  It’s as easy as that.  Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.


* In the picture above I used a bottled jar of Fire-Roasted Soup since I didn’t have any sauce.  It was delicious!

This also happens to be a great lunch for the kids.  I will either use leftovers or quickly whip up a batch before school!  They will never need to miss out on ‘pizza day’ again.
