Today, I am going to introduce you to one of my favorite five minute meals, Pita Pizzas. This recipe is amazingly simple, diverse, healthy, and delicious.
To start off, select a good pita pizza or English muffin. If you are gluten-free, select your favorite gluten-free pita / English muffin. I prefer Ezekiel 4:9 English Muffins – they are simply fabulous. But sometimes, we just use simple pita bread from Costco. I never buy breads with high fructose corn syrup, bleached flour, or anything “enriched.” Enriched means that all of the valuable nutrients were removed and then were “added” back in as a service… but they are not easily absorbed nor integrated.
You will also need a good spaghetti sauce. Check the ingredients. High fructose corn syrup has found it’s way into almost every product. My favorite spaghetti sauce is the Classico brand. I love that it is low on sodium, no high fructose corn syrup, MSG free, and affordable.
Then you are going to blend up some spinach love. In a blender, combine a spinach leaves with water. Start small on the water and work your way to the consistency you want. When I first started adding spinach to our pizzas, I stared with a teaspoon of blended spinach and worked our way up to a couple tablespoons.
Spread a thin layer of spinach on each pizza. Top with spaghetti sauce, cheese, and toppings of your choice. We love tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, mushroom, artichokes, pineapple – go crazy. Broil on high for 3-5 minutes. Stay close, you do not want to burn these babies!
Slice, serve, and enjoy.
