Low Calorie Pita Bread Pizza

Hello everybody!! how was your weekend? mine was wonderful, on Valentine’s Day we ended up going out for dinner despite the crazy low temperatures, and we survived. Today feels like a lazy Tuesday for me, is one of those days when you want to be in your Pj’s all day, catch up with your favorite shows and eat pizza.

I got to do the first two (check those grandma Pj’s) but pizza is not an option right now (with me trying to eat healthy and everything) so a while ago I came up with a solution to calm my pizza cravings. What if I told you, you can enjoy pizza any day without worrying about eating 1000 calories? Oh yeah!!! Can I hear a hallelujah!! This Pita Bread Pizza is really yummy and guilt free with only 300 calories.

You’ll need 1 loaf of white pita bread (160 cal, you can use wheat pita bread and slice your calories even more), 1 tsp of ketchup (10 cal), 1/4 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella (80 cal), 1 slice of ham, cut in little pieces (35 cal), 3 green olives, sliced (15 cal) and some crushed oregano. Start by preheating your oven to 300 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place your pita bread on it. Spread 1 tsp of ketchup all over the pita bread.

step1

Add 1 slice of ham, cut into little pieces. Then evenly distribute 1/4 cup of low-fat shredded mozzarella.

step2

Slice 3 green olives and place them over the cheese and finally sprinkle with crushed oregano.

step3

Bake for 5 minutes in your preheated oven and broil for around half a minute, or until the top is slightly golden and the cheese is bubbly. Let it sit for a minute (if you can resist the amazing smell), eat and thank me later!!
