and earned a much needed relax night. That is why they invented pizza night, after all!
Pizza night is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, which is the reason so many of us like to celebrate it several times a month. What if you want to have your cake and eat it too? You’re working hard at living a healthy lifestyle and pizza can be a dangerous slope if you are tired and hungry, unless you have the will power of Shera or He-man that is.
Here is my favorite super easy; it can’t get any easier, pizza to make for a fun pizza night without the guilt or worry of blowing your whole diet and fitness program out of the water. It is so quick you can make it faster than
ordering your favorite pie. The pizza is also individual sized which is great
for portion control. Have a whole family to cook for? Throw a few more pizzas on the pan with very little effort.
Guilt-Free Vegan Pizza
1 whole wheat pita
¼ cup pizza sauce
10 veggie pepperonis
3 Tbsp. shredded soy mozzarella style cheese
Herbs – a small sprinkle of your favorite or whatever is fresh in the garden (optional)
Preheat oven to 400F. Place the pita onto a non-stick baking sheet. Top pita with sauce, and spread evenly around. Place pepperonis on the pita in a nice little design. Evenly spread the soy mozzarella cheese on the pita. Top with a small sprinkle of your favorite herbs if you’d like an extra boost of flavor, or can you douse it in hot sauce after it bakes like my husband likes to do.
Wait for the oven to finish pre-heating because that is how quick it was to make your pizza. Bake until cheese is melted and edges of the pita are a light golden brown, approximately 8 minutes. Cut into triangle slices, the
more triangles, the more pieces you get ;-).
