This favorite is adapted from a recipe from Healthy Cooking for Two (Or Just You) by Fances Price, RD. Combination, pepperoni, Hawaiian, chicken, whatever your heart desires. For busy people, the pizza may be prepared and frozen.  You will love it!

Ingredients:
1 100% whole wheat pita bread
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon pasta sauce
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
your choice of toppings

Directions:
Preheat oven to 500 F. Poke holes in the side of the pita bread. This prevents the bread from blowing up while cooking. Brush both sides of the pita bread with olive oil. Spread the pasta sauce on pita bread. Spread the mozzarella cheese over the pasta sauce. Then add toppings. Place in oven from 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool.

Tips:
I use garlic olive oil for added flavor. When preparing Hawaiian styled or chicken pizzas, I use an alfredo sauce. Turkey pepperoni packs lots of flavor and is healthier than traditional pepperoni.
