Prep time: 10 minutes

What you need:

  • 1 6½" whole-wheat pita (cut in half to make 2 pockets)

  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Your favorite pizza toppings, such as green pepper, mushrooms, pineapple or a couple slices of turkey pepperoni

Equipment and other supplies:

  • measuring cups and spoons
  • spoon
  • microwave-safe plate

What to do:

  1. Place each pita half (2 pockets) on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Spoon 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce into each half and spread.
  3. Add your favorite toppings.
  4. Measure ¼ cup of cheese and sprinkle into 1 pocket. Repeat for other pocket.
