I have a confession to make: I'm addicted to California Pizza Kitchen frozen margherita pizzas. Like, I can eat the whole thing myself. And I do. But with my mission to eat healthier, I've put a stop to that pizza binge. I knew I'd have California Pizza withdrawals, so I racked my brain for a tasty alternative. What is a margherita pizza, anyway? It's basically dough and mozzarella and tomato and basil.
What you need for my easy margherita pizza:
Pita Bread (I like Joseph's heart-friendly
oat bran and whole wheat pita bread).
Roma tomato. Fresh mozzarella.
Light olive oil. Basil (fresh or a shaker).
Spread a bit of olive oil on the pita bread and sprinkle with basil. Slice off some mozzarella cheese and slice up that roma tomato. Arrange on the pita bread. Sprinkle with more basil. Pop in your toaster oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until it's all warm and melty. (It's sooo delish! And remarkably similar to my beloved California Pizza Kitchen pizzas!)
For dessert, pop a few blackberries into Greek yogurt and sprinkle with granola.
Om nom nom. Get in my belly!
