Pita Pizza- Low Carb and Low Fat

This is one of my favorite go to lunches because it is low calorie and is so easy and simple. And for someone who cooks for one, this is a great lunch or dinner!

What you need:

I Low Carb Pita (This kind of pita has 16 g of Carbs and lots of fiber. I can find it in my local Hyvee)- 130 Calories
2 Tablespoons of tomato sauce- 10 Calories
Garlic, Basil, and Oregano seasonings
Spinach leaves- 4 Calories
2-3 ounces of Grilled or cooked chicken chopped up- 60 Calories
Veggies (In this case I use cherry tomatoes, and red pepper)- 40 Calories
1.5 ouncesLow-Moisture Skim Mozzarella – 119 Calories

Approximate Calorie Count: 363 Calories

How you put it together:
1. Set the oven to 425 degrees, so that after you put everything together you can just stick it right in the oven.
2. Cut the pita in half—and by this I mean slice around the edges to peel the pita into two thinner circles…(does that make sense?) I wish I would have taken pictures of this….it’s hard to explain.
3. Lay the out side of the pita down on the baking sheet. Cover each side in 1 Tbsp of tomato sauce, then sprinkle garlic powder, oregano, and basil over the tomato sauce.
4. Layer the spinach leaves on top of the tomato sauce….it can be a few leaves or if you want more green you can put a ton. (I like a lot of spinach, it doesn’t taste as bad on a pizza.) Add chicken and veggies to each half. The cover each half in cheese. ( You can use more cheese if you want, but in order for it to be somewhat low cal, I have to cut back on the cheese.)
5. Bake for 12-13 minutes.
6. Enjoy all on your own or share and add something else to your meal!
