Pita "Pizza"

Pearl mozzarella isn't just for snacking! Try slicing it to top an individual pita pizza with fresh tomato and basil. A little goes a long way.

Prep Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
15 mins
1 to 2 pizza & cups salad


  • 1 whole-wheat pita bread (6 1/2-inch)

  • 2 ½ teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 small tomato, cored and sliced

  • 1 ounce pearl mozzarella balls, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

  • ½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 2 cups mixed baby salad greens


  1. Place pita on a foil-lined toaster-oven pan. Brush evenly with 1 teaspoon oil. Arrange tomato and mozzarella on top. Toast until the cheese begins to melt and the edges of the pita are toasted and starting to brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle basil over the pizza and cut into wedges if desired.

  2. Drizzle the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and vinegar over the greens and serve with the pita pizza.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
