Pita Pizza

Makes 6 pizzas

Whole-wheat pita bread makes a perfect crust for a child-size pizza and children enjoy assembling them once the vegetables have been chopped. In addition to the toppings listed, you could also add fat-free vegetarian pepperoni slices.

1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 teaspoon garlic granules or powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
6 pieces whole-wheat pita bread
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cup chopped mushrooms

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine tomato sauce, tomato paste, garlic, basil, oregano, and thyme.

Turn a piece of pita bread upside down and spread with 2 to 3 tablespoons of sauce. Top with green onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Repeat with remaining pita breads. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until edges are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Note: You will only use about half the sauce. Refrigerate or freeze the remainder for use at another time.
