Pita Pizza

Simple and quick favorite; uses prepared marinara sauce. My California-Mexican style toppings are usually always available in the kitchen. Yes, on the table in less than 5 minutes! Serve with one or more antipasta, vegetable or fruit salads.

1 whole wheat pita round
2 tbsp marinara sauce
2 tbsp red sweet pepper chopped
2 tbsp red onion chopped
1 tsp red chili pepper
handful fresh cilantro leaves chopped
1 clove garlic crushed, sliced thin
1 small fresh tomato garden or farmers market
1 tbsp roasted red pepper sliced
1 handful fresh basil shredded

Spread marinara sauce onto pita round. Top with sliced red pepper, onions and cilantro. Bake in 400 F oven 7-10 min. Or toast in toaster oven ~3-4 min until bread is just golden and topping warm. Cut into triangles and serve.
